    Bourdain's Lyon episode with Daniel Boulud was pretty entertaining.

    Yesterday, at Paul Bocuse's Brasserie le Sud, which is amazing. As you guys who saw Bourdain's Lyon episode know, the dude is the culinary king here. He has the restaurants in all the prime real estate. The le Sud is at the end of a whole row of really good Brasseries on the Place Anton Poincet, looking directly at the Rhone.

    Entree (starter) was salmon, with a sesame seed crust, which I've never seen before. The sauce was an asparagus cream sauce.

    The plat was tuna. I forgot to take a picture before I cut into it, since I was ravenous, but you can see that the tuna is cooked, perfectly. As usual, the French do the sides amazingly. That rice pilaf, a mix of white and forbidden rice, with onions and carrots for sweetness, and butter for richness, was killer, and tbh, sorta competed with the protein (not a bad thing, both were delicious.)
    [​IMG]

    The desert de jour was a raspberry tart with a meringue on top. I'm not sure how they preapred this, but as you can see, the raspberries were barely touched, but the meringue has a very light crust? I'm guess that it was put under a salamander very briefly:

    These dishes are plated simply, but in a fairly modern way. I ate at the Cafe des Federations, the oldest Bouchon in Lyon, later, and the the preparations are much more traditional (the service is traditionally family style for the salads and the starter dishes, for example/)

    No, never lined up for cronuts (and probably would never, lol). My cousin did the preoder all three times and you just walk right in, give them your receipt and they give you your order.

    sadly I can never find Asian mangoes (which I grew up on) in my neck of the woods. Not a fan of Mexican mangoes.
    Heard the West Coast gets Philipino mangoes though they're not easy to find

    looks like I'll be out in San Francisco for about three weeks for work and I'm totally unfamiliar with anything out there. wasn't there a SF / Bay area food + shopping thread somewhere? can't seem to find it. or did I just imagine it?

    Look at the articles at the bottom. We made an entire shopping map for San Francisco.

    Thanks, Fok. Having a look now. Guess there's no dining + shopping thread then. Maybe it's just the LA one I'm thinking of. Well, if anyone has any general advice it would be much appreciated (feel free to PM me so as not to derail this thread).

    Here's the link Fok was referring to

    http://www.styleforum.net/a/san-francisco-shopping-map

    For food, SF is a really big food and drink town. Without overwhelming you with stuff, I like the pizza at Una Pizza Napoletana, Flour + Water, Pizzeria Delfina, and Farina. Farina, I think, is the least famous of the four, but my favorite on the list. The DOC and Buffalina are really good, as they import buffalo mozzarella straight from Naples. Plus, after lunch or dinner, you can stop by Self Edge and Unionmade, which I think are some of the better clothing stores in the city.

    For more suggestions, Google "7x7 must eats." They do a food guide every year with not only restaurant recommendations, but also dish recommendations.

    I'm in SF a fair bit, as a frequent visitor rather than a resident, but aU've spent a accumulated... 7 months in SF over the past 15 years. So my perspective might interest you. What sort of food? Where are you staying?

    Locanda and Delfina are also both good. Located if you like meat. It is one of @Parker's favorites. We had to wait for our table, but they comped us wine, and the food was very American-Roman, in a good way.
