My White Whale ~ Real Bar and Bistro ~ Solana Beach

So, I have always wanted to have egg yolk ravioli. You just do not see it on menus ..or I just missed it “We had it last week”. Chef “Willy” from Real Bar and Bistro said “Come down I will make some special for you, using my own recipe.”

I can now check this off my bucket list 🙂  I dragged my friend and a great Chef in her own right, Christine from Petite Madeline Bakery & Bistro. 

This has been the best meal I have had this year. It was thoughtful, creative, and made me think.

Real Bar and Bistro Ravioi 1

First Course ~  Fava bean and Mascarpone Ravioli, peas, carrots, house made ricotta, wild ramp/fennel frond pesto, mustard greens.

Perfect pasta, perfectly cooked carrots…and it gets better.

Real Bar and Bistro Ravioi 2

This is what I came for and it was one of those dishes you have to wrap your mind around.

Egg Yolk Ravioli ~ (raw) Egg Yolk Only ravioli, bolognese jus emulsion, truffle, mustard greens.

Dessert.

Real Bar and Bistro Honey and cheese

Local Honey Comb and house made Parmesan…..please son.

This guy is 26 doing this stuff.

Also a shout out to the staff…on point as always!

Real Bar and Bistro staff and my ugly ass-)

I am the idiot in the red shirt.
