Pacifica: Beach and Bites
May 25th this year marked our 11th wedding anniversary. While we don't celebrate the day in a normal fashion, we did take a day off (it being a Friday) and after some work-related appointment by the husband we trooped to the beach and grabbed the chance to try another restaurant for a little bite.
I tagged along with husband as he took some licensing examinations. Afterwards, we thought we'd spend the beautiful day in foggy, cloudy, and windy Pacifica. Pacifica is a coastal city near San Francisco and a pretty nice day trip destination (if you are willing to hurdle the traffic towards San Francisco), especially in the summer time.
It was not summer yet, but despite the drizzle we headed off to the beach. Pacifica is known for surfing, but each time I go I see fishermen instead. The clouds parted temporarily while we were there, but not for long. By the time we were ready to eat, it was drizzling again.
Perfect timing for the drizzle, we were just pulling up in the restaurant's parking lot. For bites, we chose to try Puerto 27, Peruvian food and pisco bar. We arrived in time for happy hour and ordered a few from the Happy Hour menu and one main dish. Sat in the bar and looked out past the bar into the ocean. Occasionally we looked at the tv hanging on the wall, but our team, the champion Warriors did not have any game that night.
I started with pisco of course. Realized I kinda like pisco.
The husband had a bourbon-based cocktail.
Ceviche and plantain chips.
Choritos (pan fried mussels)
Empanada with aji verde aioli
Pescado a lo macho - whole fried branzino (European bass) with seafood stew and jasmine rice.
We lingered over the meal, enjoying the good food, the yummy drinks and the gray view of the Pacific Ocean.
Took one photo while getting caught up in a traffic jam in San Francisco.
