Travel Guide to California - - GOLD COUNTRY -

The HANGTOWN FRY, a cu­ri­ous con­coc­tion of oys­ters, ba­con and eggs, was al­legedly born in 1849 when a prospec­tor tossed a satchel full of gold dust onto the bar in the EL DO­RADO HO­TEL in Plac­erville—then known as “Hangtown”—and de­manded the most ex­pen­sive meal in the house. They still serve the dish in town at the BUTTERCUP PANTRY.
