I’ve been visiting San Francisco and checking out its bloody mary scene for awhile now, so I feel like I’ve hit many of the major hot spots, especially after my most recent trip.

I finally made it to Foreign Cinema, a place that has popped up on many “best” lists in my research.

Per Thrillist, “In line with the restaurant’s wide-ranging use of spices from all over the world, this mary combines tomato juice, lime, sherry vinegar, South Indian curry, and sumac for a flavorful morning beverage.”

The stats:

Spice: Sumac rimmed/Persian style

Mix: Housemade

Chaser: None Offered

Fixin’s: Celery, olives and assorted pickled veggies/strips

Price: $12.60

This bloody mary was indeed delicious, but it was so built up in my mind that it was a little bit of a let down by the time I finally got to try it.

The fixin’s were odd in my opinion–they looked like they were there more for decoration than to be consumed and I really couldn’t tell quite what I was eating. The venue/restaurant itself is really cool, however, and it looks like they have a lot of great menu items as well.
