For most of our 7 years together, I wouldn't say Rob and I were very food adventurous. Rob is a standard meat and potatoes kind of guy, and his go-to meal is ALWAYS a burger and fries. But when college ended (and so did the top ramen meals), trying new food became a deep love of mine and now, I'd say our vacations are often centered on food adventures. While I wouldn't say the food scene is as extensive at San Francisco or L.A., Sacramento is moving up in the foodie world. The other night, Rob and I gave Thir13n a try (and I made sure they had a burger 😉 ).
Thir13n, located on corner of 13th and H street in downtown Sacramento
Thir13n has a wonderfully simple menu, packed with great flavors and fresh, locally raised food. The blood orange granita that was served with my oysters was delightful and Rob raved about the burger. And for dessert, the chocolate molten cake was relentlessly rich and delicious. Their farm to table approach to food produces tastefully original meals and their 13 seater family style table really welcomes friends and family to enjoy food together. Personally, I am a huge patio-seating fan and Thir13en is the perfect place for that too. The chef and owner Adam Pechal was recently a contestant on ABC's the Taste which is really exciting for Sacramento area food! Overall, Thir13en was a wonderful dining experience and we can't wait to head back.
This weekend was really relaxed and easy. I got my hair done (which I'm so happy with, I'm waiting to share pictures until I can get an "after" shot to match my before one). I spent some time with my family, ate good food and may have had a glass of wine/sangria/beer at some point. How was your weekend?
Do you enjoy trying new restaurants? What's the strangest meal/dish you've ever tried?
