Sacramento Eats

While in Sacramento this week, I made it a point to do a little exploring. What’s travel without food, right? If you are in Sacramento, definitely give these a shot!

Affordable French food? Sign me up! I started with French Onion Soup, which was perfectly caramelized, and a still-crunchy crouton… amazing. It was an excellent start of the evening!

For my entree, I opted for Gigot d’Agneau – leg of lamb wrapped around cheese and excellently spiced. It was served on a bed of white beans and still moist throughout. Quite delicious!

Fahrenheit 250

I am a sucker for good BBQ, and Fahrenheit 250 didn’t disappoint! I opted for jerk chicken with brisket chili and cheese grits. The grits weren’t runny (yay!), and everything had a wonderful kick to it! These folks know what they’re doing, for sure. They also have a decent selection of beers on tap – be sure to be there for happy hour!

Mmm... spice!
Mmm… spice!

de Vere’s Irish Pub

After a productive week, the team felt a night at an Irish pub was in order. With an expansive selection of whiskies and beers, it was an excellent decision! I opted for a Reuben with a fried egg, and their soup of the day: a turkey meatball in a curry sauce akin to that of butter chicken!

Mm... creamy!
Mm… creamy!

The hat opted for Shepherd’s Pie – also with a fried egg! It was an excellent choice from what I was told! Our server, responsible for recommending the inclusion of egg with our entrees, certainly earned her tip – she knew the menu like the back of her hand, and was happy to suggest both libations and savories.

The Hat goes Irish!
