A Yelper's Recommendation for Sacramento

This is part of my 10 Day You challenge, 6 places. I thought I would share 6 places to eat in Sacramento. Whenever I tell people that I'm an Elite Yelper, the first thing they always ask me is what my favorite restaurant is. That's sort of a loaded question to ask a Yelper.

As a Yelper I do know a lot of popular places, but what I like might not be what you like. So I'll generally respond to this question by asking what the person's favorite food is and then respond with a place that is reputable for that cuisine or dish.

If you ever visit or live in Sacramento, here are some places that I would recommend.

The Firehouse Restaurant
I recently discovered this place. Hubs and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary here. We got their course meal which was amazing and a great way to try several of their dishes. Since we made reservations they gave us the best seat in the house which was intimate and had the perfect ambience. Their mousse bomb dessert is a must try here!

Yui Marlu
This year has really been all about the chirashi for me. Whenever I go to a Japanese restaurant I'll be more than likely to get a chirashi bowl. Yui Marlu has the best chirashi in Sacramento that I've had so far. The chef is a true artist and the fish is fresh! It's also a hole in the wall but I don't care. I'm here for the food. DROOL!

So can you tell that I like Japanese food? It's definitely one of my top 3 favorite cuisines. This is a modern and chic take on sushi. The rolls here are definitely unique. I love their combinations. If you're up for trying something new I would check out this place. Try their Sunshine Roll.

Café Rolle
Casual French lunch. That's the best way I can describe this place. They have really good smoked salmon. I love all their sandwiches. The food really makes you feel like you're in a street cafe in France. They bake their baguettes and smoke their salmon in house!

Tower Cafe
Best brunch place hands down! All the items on their menu are good. Omellete, fresh toast, egg benny, etc. I recommend the Madame Cristo. It's amazing! I've never had it anywhere else. The decor here is a little cooky too.

Ramen House Ryujin
Hubs loves ramen so we were trying to find a good ramen place up in Sacramento that would satisfy his cravings. While it's not even close to as good as the ones in the Bay Area, Ryujin is pretty good. I love their Kuro Tonkotsu which is the black garlic ramen.
