Ring, Ring, Ring!

My Beloved is an onion ring connoisseur. Given a choice between fries and rings, he almost always chooses rings. Most of the time, I'll try one of his but most rings are disappointing - too bready, not enough sweet onion taste, etc. So, when this plate of rings arrived at our table at The Station House Cafe in Point Reyes Station, I was impressed with the huge pile, but skeptical about their deliciousness.

I was mistaken.

These were very lightly breaded, crisp and light, with a breading/onion ratio that was just right. Lightly sprinkled with fresh herbs, they made a tempting little mountain. Next time you feel you are jonesing for onion rings, a trip out to PRS should be in your future. Give My Beloved a wave - he'll be the guy at the next table.

A well made onion ring is a rare treat - a thing of joy! Putting that restaurant on my bucket list.

Nancy, you won't be disappointed. If you like oysters, too, try their oyster stew. Killer!

Greg, yes, the whole presentation was nice. It's a good spot for a casual meal, and they have live music on Sunday nights after the tourists go home. :-)

Buzz, thanks for the idea of going there. Always fun to go with my best friend.

I too gravitate toward the fried spuds. Lucky for us, we have a local "Shot and a Beer" bistro that makes the best onion rings. Just the right ratio of beer batter to onion. Crispy, never soggy. Most importantly, they never break apart and the onion never slides out, leaving breading without onion.

Three Dogs, you have put your finger on a pet peeve of mine - the sliding onion part! :-) Two minds with but a single thought.
