The Spot: Cassava Bakery + Cafe
The Neighborhood: Outer Richmond
The Cuisine: New American
Specialty Item: Japanese Breakfast
To Americans, breakfast means Belgian waffles doused in syrup, fried eggs, and greasy sausage -- in other words, fat, fat, and more fat. But to the Japanese, it means a meal loaded with iron, fiber, and protein, all subtly flavored without the help of grease. Earthy miso soup, koshihikari steamed rice, and gooey soybeans rule the day.
