Biscuits and Gravy

mmpojo | Jun 30, 201410:04 AM

It seems to be my quixotic quest. To try and find an acceptable biscuits and gravy in the city. I given up hope trying to find a good one. My standards are high, I've been making biscuits and gravy for close to 40 years, and have perfected a particular type. I prefer a milk, not cream base with dense pockets of hot country sausage, liberal spiked with pepper and thickened with a proper roux. The biscuits, buttermilk of course, cut with a combination of lard and butter.

So here's the crux of my question. While I can have great biscuits and gravy any time at home, I invariably have to try whatever versions that I find on a menu when I'm out and about. I can't help it, even if there's other amazing choices on the menu, if I see biscuits and gravy I have to order it. My wife has given up any hope of rehabilitating me.

So what are your thoughts! Where can I find good biscuits and gravy in San Francisco or the East Bay?
