3003 Oak Rd, Walnut Creek
With the eagerly anticipated opening of the South American restaurant Sabores del Sur in Walnut Creek near the Pleasant Hill BART station this week, I checked out a preview party last week and as expected the food was delicious. The high ceilings and cheery decor make for a great spot to stop by for a bite to eat. I am not kidding when I say those alfajores cookies are delicious, not to mention the empanadas and pastel de choclo (Chliean casserole). I will definitely be back ASAP for more!

Plenty more photos of the inside and food (including the signature alfajores cookies) after the jump…
