Mrs. Mo-Fo's Birthday at Moss Room

This evening, we celebrated Mrs. Mo-Fo's birthday at the Moss Room located in the new California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

We really enjoyed the restaurant but it was only half full... I was not sure if it was because of the bad economy or because it was Thursday. I took pictures of the food, unfortunately most of them did not turn out well due to the low lighting in the restaurant. I really need to learn how to take better pictures in restaurants!

For the appetizer, I had the cauliflower soup, mackerels for the main course and vacherin for dessert. Vacherin is a blend of swiss meringue, coffee gelato, chocolate sauce, a flurry of almonds and creme anglaise. It's crazy rich but oh it was so freaking good!

Here are a few good pictures of food that we took: Grilled Monterey squid with saffron rice…

Lamb shank with pearl couscous…

and Roasted shredded brussel sprouts with chickpeas.
