Just (well, not just, but close enough) home from an afternoon and evening in SF with [livejournal.com profile] gridlore, [livejournal.com profile] ataniell93, the Ambassador from Mongo (who doesn't have an LJ), and the here-on-business [livejournal.com profile] fusijui. Dinner was at The Slanted Door, with the suits picking up the bill (or as near as made no difference), and oh my god. My comment to Doug on the train home was "I loved being able to go somewhere we couldn't afford on our own, and order things you'd never eat." ;-)

Let's see. Half a dozen oysters and an order of yellowtail from the raw bar; the house spring rolls; two orders of shaken beef (the one thing we ordered that Doug would actually eat, hence the need for more); vegetarian glass noodles and cellophane noodles with Dungeness crab; crispy duck; summer squash with mushrooms...and dessert! There were seven options, and the Ambassador said "So let's figure out which two we don't like and get the rest!" We actually skipped three of them, and there wound up not being as much sharing as we initially intended, though Azalais and I did do a "prisoner exchange" (a spoonful of her creme brulee in exchange for a spoonful of my Guittard dark chocolate pot de creme).

Thank you all again for a wonderful evening that I would not have otherwise gotten to enjoy.

Now I'm hungry...Though only once I got past the mention of raw seafood.

Yeah, I really wanted that creme brulee much more than I wanted any of the other desserts--though yours was good, I must admit! :)

You guys are nuts. CHOCOLATE. As opposed to carbonized cow nipple pressings, or chocolate adulterated with raw concentrated cow nipple extract. CHOCOLATE... though if truth be told, it wasn't as above-par as the rest of the food.

It was totally great to meet you guys, and I had a blast; I'm just sorry we didn't get to hang out and talk more. Next time!
