Dad and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at a restaurant we stumbled upon in the Castro, Tangerine. It is popular in the neighborhood, we had a short wait in the foyer.
Dad wanted some simple Oatmeal. Simple yes, but beautiful and generously portioned with an add of fruit. Dad said every bite was delicious.
The Zucchini Latkes with Smoked Salmon sounded intriguing to me. It was not only interesting, but a pleasure to the palate with its simple dusting of flour and hash brown-like design. It was surrounded by a colorful puree of spinach and the poached egg was topped with Hollandaise sauce. The colorful design was a delight to the eye as well.
It was accompanied by a lightly dressed and crisp green salad. This paired perfectly with the low carb latke plate. Tangerine is delightful and well worth a detour to enjoy.
