a bloody whaaa ..?

So for someone who is British, you'd find it interesting to know...
 I had NO idea a place such as this even existed. 

Cameron's Inn is found on the side of Highway 1, in Half Moon Bay. For someone who has visited Great Britain and eaten at her share of pubs, this location is pretty spot on. The iconic old red telephone box sits outside the main entrance, with a chopping block and a vintage taxi, of course.

And as soon as you walk inside, there are hundreds of thousands of beer cans lining the walls, if you can see them through the dim lighting, it's a sight!! The dimly lit dining area and overall ambiance and decor is very authentic. 
They even have a gift shop in case you need some chocolates for the ride home. 

I indulged in the French Dip, a traditional sandwich made with roast beef and served with a side of the "au jus" or sauce.. that came from meat preparation.  
If you came for the fish and chips, you will NOT be disappointed. The thick fries are tender but crispy, and the fish has a great crust and is full of flavor. 
The tartar sauce was especially creamy, I dip the fries in it too. 

After walking around the property a bit, saying hi to stray cats (standard) we found ourselves at a bus. A double decker bus, at that! And if that doesn't impress you enough, it is the only bus you may smoke a fag in. 
"Cigarettes" for all of you Yanks reading this. 

If you find yourself in the Bay Area and hungry, take a drive to Half Moon Bay and take a mini vacation to jolly old England, and tell them Devon sent you. (wink wink**)

BOODY BRILLIANT I tell you, it is definitely worth an adventure to the coast.  

Ciao xx

Drakes Brewery

Adventuring the other week led Robert and I to this little gem. Located in the Bay Area, more specifically San Leandro.. Is Drakes Brewery. My guy and I are fond of a few of their favors, but have always been interested in what else they have to offer. 

I decided on four favors, which I've never had before. The Black Rubusto, the 7x70, the Trappistito, and the Bavarian style Hefewiezen. 

Which just happened to work out well, since I brought my Bavarian with me ;) 

Out of the four, I enjoyed the Hefe and the Porter the best. The sharp, clean taste of the Hefewiezen was perfect for a warm day in California. The Porter was thick but not heavy, and the flavor out the end just bounced off your tastebuds.
