At least once in their lives, everyone needs to do a California coast road trip.
Such an unforgettable, gorgeous, incredible experience.
I just picked three good words, but any and all good words also apply.
While this particular trip wasn’t full of misadventures (my posts will be short and semi-sweet), it was full of breathtaking scenery and some good eats.
To say we ate our way through the California coast is an understatement. Over the next six posts, you’ll get a gander at what I shoved in my gob (and will most likely be naseous as a result).
This trip culminated in one of the most coveted dining experiences in the United States. If you’re a foodie, you already know what I’m taking about. Stay tuned!
First stop on the trip, Big Sur. One of the more dramatic and striking sections of the coast. Especially the view pictured at the top, from Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park.
I had been to Big Sur, and more importantly, the Big Sur Bakery once before and had one of the most delicious, drool-worthy pizzas ever.
While that particular one had been taken off the menu (butternut squash and sage), we enjoyed an almost equally tasty cheese, linguica and arugula pie that I couldn’t get enough of.
The salad was a highlight, I loved the tarragon dressing and wished-it-were-bigger hunk of fried goat cheese.
The grilled pork chops were also a delight (yes, I just called something a delight).
Another highlight of this place is they let you take home the day’s pastries. At least they do at dinner time. And when no one is looking.
