The Stinking Rose
Here it is, my #1 Favorite Restaurant in San Francisco. The Stinking Rose.
Here, it's all about Garlic! I can't even begin to imagine the sheer amount of garlic this restaurant uses on a daily basis. All I know if that for 3 days after eating a meal here, you reek of it! To help with that, they bring a sinful appetizer to the table. It is made of slow-roasted garlic, olive oil, spices and a tiny bit of anchovy.
This concoction spreads onto the bread like soft butter. It's so yummy, that you almost want to spoil your dinner just to eat a pan full of this. They also provide a delicious Pesto on the table.
Mix that with the roasted garlic and it is pure heaven! My favorite dish here is the ravioli.
It is stuffed with garlic and served with a cream sauce and cilantro. I love how colorful it is. So, if you ever find yourself in San Francisco, be sure to check this place out. You won't be sorry…but the stray Vampire might be.
