We are flying back to Minnesota from California today (to a bit of snow I hear). We've really enjoyed our visit, getting to see friends, enjoying the warm weather (ok, they think its cold here) but most of all enjoying the food.
We always have to get a Mission burrito when we are here. We've learned to like Chipotle but we miss these burritos so much. Really it's about the Spanish rice & the melted cheese.
Sushi is another must have while we are in the Bay Area. I hear there is some good sushi in Minneapolis but I can't get past the idea of eating raw fish in a place with no coast.
After sushi last night we tried Red Mango, a frozen yogurt shop on University Ave in Palo Alto. Their yogurt is all natural & really has a strong yogurt flavor. Right now they have a pomegranate yogurt which I had topped with fresh pomegranate seeds, so good!
This morning we headed over to Hobie's for breakfast. To me Hobie's means one thing, coffee cake. They make this amazing light blueberry coffee cake. They serve you a huge piece that's warm & topped with tons of melting butter. Matt got their seasonal cranberry coffee cake & thought the tartness of the cranberries was perfect with the sweet topping.
I heard that Sprinkles, the famous cupcake store in LA, had opened a store in the Stanford Center. Since we were staying within walking distance I had to go try it out. I have to admit I wasn't blown away. I found the cupcake to be a little dry & the cream cheese frosting was way too sweet. I'm glad I got to try them out but next time I'll head to Kara's Cupcakes since they have opened a location in the Town & Country Center.
