Nopa (San Francisco: Nopa)

By in 04: SF+Bay Area

Another year-old visit that I finally get around to blog. Unfortunately, unlike the previous entry, my memory of this is a bit hazy…

Nopa is one of those places in SF that’s highly recommended by everyone and guidebooks. It has a great cocktail menu and we got some very good beverages. We tried couple of their cocktails and my favorite was the Pisco Sour (quebranta pisco, lemon juice, lime juice egg white and amargo cusco).

Amuse bouche: apples with dip and sea salt
Little gems with creamy herb vinaigrete, fuyu persimmon and mezzo secco.

Moroccan Vegetable Tagine with toasted almonds and lemon yogurt
I believe this is one of their star dishes.

Grilled Calamari, roasted cauliflower, olives capers and aioli – a lot smaller than we expected…
French Fries and roasted red pepper-feta dip

Wood Grilled Hanger Steak, Fingerling potato and arugula

Forgot what this is…could be delicata and sweet dumpling squash, sherry onions and parmesan.

The tagine and the hanger steak were great, overall the food was pretty solid. Though have to say they aren’t very memorable hence the hazy memories. I asked the people whom I had the dinner with what they remembered and all said they only remember the cocktails. Perhaps we were too hyped up by all the recommendations? Their menu changes all the time so
