The other day I received an e-mail from Francisco De Lovely inquiring about where he can eat a delicious black bean meal. He writes:
I’m coming to Cambria to vacation with my last two tupperware containers of black beans. I have enjoyed a blissful 6 months with my 25lbs bag of black beans. I named my friend Harold Black Bean. I’ll be arriving at The Bridge Street Inn around dinner time. I’m excited to use your famous cast iron collection to cook up Harold. I also have a special Harold breakfast planned. I’m concerned about the 10:30AM to 5PM lock out. Can you recommend a local favorite restaurant where I might enjoy some of Harold Black Beans relatives?
Francisco and Harold Black Bean
I write back.
Hello Francisco and Harold Black Bean,
Myself and guest, Melissa, recently went on a black bean bonanza. To answer your question we went to lunch at Sebastian’s Store and Cafe located 9.1 miles North of Cambria off of Highway 1 near Hearst Castle. Their black bean burger is EPIC!!!! That evening we made a black bean pizza followed by Heavous Rancheros for breakfast. Hope you enjoy the black bean bonanza photo blog.
See you soon,
The surrounding area around Sebastian’s provides plenty of different places to digest black beans.
After digesting the black bean burger Melissa and I are ready for the black bean pizza dinner. The below black bean pizza is similar to the lentil pizza that appeared in the blog post My Underwear Matches my Pizza. Here’s a link to view a description of the black bean pizza toppings. http://bridgestreetinn.wordpress.com/2012/02/07/my-underwear-matches-my-pizza-at-the-bridge-street-inn/
Melissa and I had to take a break from the black bean. We didn’t eat black beans till breakfast. I dreamed of black beans.
Here are a couple of nutritional links about Harold Black Bean.
