Pezzini Farms, Castroville, CA - The BEST Fried Artichokes You'll Ever Have!
If you are traveling down towards Monterey and you love artichokes, then you have to go through Castroville, CA. Castroville is the Artichoke Capitol of the World. They are everywhere. For the BEST fried artichoke hearts, go to Pezzini Farms. This is a really great vegetable/fruit stand with a food truck that sells fried artichoke hearts. They are lightly battered, fried crispy and seasoned then served with your choice of dipping sauces. My favorite was the garlic dijon aoli. It's six bucks per order. You should just order 2 orders when you make your order because you will definitely want more!
Their address is: 460 Nashua Rd., Castroville, CA
