Consuming Culture at Cassava

In a post-Outside Lands stupor, my friend Alicia and I ventured out to the Outer Richmond for breakfast before her flight. Cassava is a hip and trendy restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For morning meals, Cassava is known for their Japanese breakfast, which is exactly what it sounds like – a traditional Japanese breakfast, providing a different and unique break from the traditional American breakfast. Every once in a while, maybe you should eat breakfast with chopsticks.

We basked in the nice sunlight shining through the large windows and enjoyed the plethora of different flavors in our meal.IMG_3658IMG_3664IMG_3662

 

Spiced Honey Latte – awesome, albeit a little too sweet for my taste.

Spiced Honey Latte Pt. II – Iced, with no added sugar. Even more awesome.IMG_3665

The Japanese Breakfast –¬†koshihikari rice, seared albacore, cured lemon natto, house made miso, market pickles, “hot spring” soft poached egg. ¬†We were not huge fans of the natto, but every other dish was great.

A Richmond gem. Who says the Richmond isn’t hip?
