We rarely will eat at a museum cafeteria. I mean, really, the word cafeteria gives me nightmares. My college dorm cafeteria scarred me for life.
But, after I read an article about the food court at the de Young and the Cal Academy of Sciences, I planned for us to grab a bit there before we headed to the Legion of Honor. I'm so glad we did. The food was great! And I never say no to a mid-day bloody mary and ceviche.
The presentation was beautiful. The freshness was apparent. And the flavors were incredible. I ordered the seafood ceviche which came in an enormous portion with crisp chips.
You know chips are my guilty pleasure...and I love seeing tentacles in my ceviche. Not everyone uses them, but it makes my little foodie heart flutter.
Jake's posole was delicious and impressive. He said, "You have to figure out how to make this." I have made that. "Nope. You have to make it like this." Fine.
And we ended with a strawberry rhubarb tart. First, we would have preferred just rhubarb, no strawberry. Second, it was way too doughy. Oh, well...it was pretty, right?!?
So, if you happen to be at the de Young in San Francisco for a day, no need to go driving all over the City for a great lunch. The cafeteria is amazing!
