Hi Fresno hounds! Hubby and I were talking the other day after reading Savuer magazine's 100 list. It is a list of snack foods, dishes, restaurants, products, etc., that the editors of the magazine put together as their favorite 100 things every year. We always enjoy reading it because it gives us ideas of things to buy or try. I was thinking that it would be fun if Fresno hounds made a list of 100 things that are spectacular to eat in Fresno.
Please make your nominations as specific as possible, a particular dish at a particular restaurant is good, or something specific you can buy at a market, or an item that you can get here that is hard to find in other places.
I'll go first...(and these are in no particular order, so #1 is not better than #2)
-The raspberry beignet at Le Parisien: the single best pastry I think I have ever eaten
-Shrimp zarandeado at Don Pepe's: shrimp quickly sauteed in a spicy tomato sauce, so messy and so good!
-Chicken mole burrito at Numero Uno: like no other mole I have ever had, but thick and rich with large chunks of perfectly cooked chicken
-The strawberry stand out on Herndon: can't wait to see their open signs!
-The citrus lady at the Vineyard Farmer's Market: she sells these Page tangerines that are out of this world, so good!
Ok, I'm sure I'll think of some more later, but that is a start! Please add on your favorite things to eat in Fresno!
