from Sonoma to Humboldt County

This past weekend I took a roadtrip from Marin County to Humboldt County's Avenue of the Giants. The area is world-wide known for their beautiful redwood trees, lakes, & scenery. It is made up of multiple, small towns with basically one restaurant & one market in each town. The entire roadtrip consisted of stops in three county's: Humboldt, Mendocino, & Sonoma. Here are some scrumptious eteries I encountered at each county:

El Rio's Mexican at Riverwood Inn, Phillipsville, Humboldt County - taco supreme: beef, cheese, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, tomato

The Groves Restaurant, Myers Flat, Humboldt County - LOVED this restaurant - baked oysters

white bean soup

duck cooked 2 ways, rissoto, kum kwat glaze - highly recommended!

Bluebird Cafe, Hopland, Mendocino County - Robins 1/2 lb burger on french roll with bacon, cheese, grilled onions, tomatoes, lettuce

oreo milkshake

Cricklewood, Santa Rosa, Sonoma County - french onion soup; I heard about this place from The Food Network's TV show called The Best Thing I Ever Ate - Guy Fieri's recommendation
