Hi, I just moved to Davis CA from the Cambridge-Boston area in MA, and have had trouble finding good eats around here. The best place I've found so far is Ciocolat, a little coffeeshop on B and 3rd with excellent pastries. But as far as a place to eat lunch or dinner, I've had little luck ... any recommendations?
P.S. The best food experience I've had this year is the Kaddo at the Helmand (sp?) in San Francisco. They're an Afghani (I think) restaurant. I went with enough people that we were able to order all but one of the appetizers. By far the best one in the opinion of all dinner mates was the Kaddo, that I had also ordered as my entree. It is lump of baked and carmelized and lightly panfried pumpkin flesh served with yogurt. Very intense.
