Alchemy [San Diego]
Went to Alchemy last night and I had to ask myself why I haven't been there for so long!! I had the crispy skin jidori chicken that was so tasty. It was busy for a Wednesday night which is good. Finished up with the bread pudding yummy. I will be back often as I now crave that chicken.
Our catering for two days of meetings was provided by Alchemy --- two lunches and one hot breakfast. And I give them a thumbs up for all.
Top notch vegetables in abundance and high quality meats, plenty of choices for vegans though it was a bit hard to avoid gluten. I especially liked a chunky roasted eggplant salad. Breakfast was particularly strong. Despite being served buffet style from steam trays, the waxy potato confit hash was wonderful and the farmers scramble featured richly colored/flavored, moist eggs.
Dusting off an old thread- ate at Alchemy tonight, and had a very similar experience and the OP. Very high quality food- granted not the most expensive of ingredients- bulgar, peas and chicken. But perfectly prepared, well seasoned, clean, nice. I at a "high end" place last night, and the Alchemy entree I had was better than anything on last night's 5 course tasting menu, and I probably spent three times what I spent at Alchemy.
Ok, my ears are stil ringing from the din, but I need to return to Alchemy more often.
