So gotta get this posted before the next weekend starts… Wine Trip Research, Round 2!! My grandparents came up to do more wine tasting around Gold Country (see Round 1: Sutter Creek), this time in Murphys, CA!
Murphys Eats & Scenes
Friday night after work, we drove in to Old Town Sacramento and ate at The Firehouse Restaurant (see Abe’s hilariously honest review here) in Old Town. They brought out a “Chef’s Taste” which was a Dungeness Crab salad with Dijon mustard dressing atop a cauliflower ricotta – so good! The Steak DelmonicoFor dessert we got the Hot Chocolate which was more like the most decadent chocolate cake/mousse/ganache/fudge ever. YUM.SO happy about LEFTOVERS!
We drove up to Murphys and ate lunch at Alchemy Market and Winebar (sans Abe, who had to work – boo). I got the crab cake and it was HUGE and delicious!
We stopped in a bakery called Aria to “refuel” 😉 and got an eclair and some tea. Oh Poppy 🙂
Still full from our day’s feedings, we stopped into V Bistro to get some (oh you know like SEVEN!?!) small plates for dinner. At least Abe was hungry from his work day. “Devils on Horseback” Medjool dates stuffed with bleu cheese and wrapped in bacon. They were tasty, but interesting.Tuna Sashimi 🙂 My small plate of choice after a particularly rich day of eating.Dessert of coconut bread pudding. Since I got a very chocolate-y (he doesn’t prefer chocolate) dessert on Friday, Abe got his choice on Saturday. Sad, but it’s only fair 😉 All of our “small plates”
We then came across this epic spice store called The Spice Tin! I love spices! I don’t know why but Abe also reviewed this store?? So many spices! It’s overwhelminggggggg
Before leaving we stopped in at Cupcakes by Lila and Sage. Cute, cute, cute store and DElicious cupcakesHaha action shot!
Thank you Grandma and Poppy for another amazing weekend!! We sure love spending time with you guys 🙂
