Last night Almanzo and I went with a few friends to P-30, one of my favorite little restaurants around here.
I’ve been to P-30 a few times before (here and here) and I’ve never been let down by their great food, service and atmosphere. It’s a little bit of a hike (the restaurant is out near Bodega Bay) but totally worth the drive. I think what I love most is that it really feels like you’re eating in a little house!
It’s very “Northern California” and I love all the funky retro decorations and lights. The boys all wanted burgers and zin, but since I’ve been nursing a migraine for a few days (not cool but it’s finally gone), I stuck to something lighter—stuffed gypsy peppers!
I know this is a bold statement, but I honestly think this was the best vegetarian main course I’ve EVER gotten at a restaurant. If you’re wondering what a gypsy pepper is, click here for more information. I wasn’t sure what they were exactly when I ordered them but I was enthralled all the same.
The peppers were tender and stuffed with a mixture of stewed leeks, mushrooms, spelt, hazelnuts and fresh goat cheese. It was super filling and incredibly tasty! I want to re-create this combination at home for sure.
Even better though was the dessert….
P-30’s signature dessert is “s’mores for two” and let me just say it does NOT disappoint. In that jar is a combination of house-made marshmallow fluff, decadent brownie bites and rich dark chocolate syrup. You then smear that heavenly concoction on the homemade cinnamon graham crackers and the result is pretty unbelievable.
I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s dangerous is what it is!
I’ll be back with a craft update and a special cookie winner!
