SF: A Culinary Adventure in the City!

Here is the summary of our lovely weekend in sunny San Francisco (but really, it was sunny!).

Let’s just say our best friend, Darci, hit the gym as soon as she sent us off on the BART back to the airport.

Meet the 3 stooges: Cush, Darc-a-larc, C.Mo

We. Ate. Alot.

And this is how we managed to get through all the food and sightseeing.

Yes, many large cups of Joe

Day 1:

Roasted Veggie Omelet, at Cafe DeLucchi

Farmer's market for lunch

They let us taste everything...and we took advantage

The perfect afternoon treat in Dolores Park, featuring ice cream & wine:

Then there was this night…

Little Yellow Note: this is the modge podge mess that happened after someone broke glass into the first round of pasta. But please note, that the top right pot was actually a delicious Butternut Squash Mac n’ Cheese Sauce.


Day 2:

On Sunday, we woke up at noon and ate a fantastic breakfast a la Darci.

Darc's specialty: Eggs benedict w/lox, minus the hollandaise sauce

After a relaxing day on Haight St. and wandering Golden Gate Park, we went out for Irish Coffees!

The famous Irish Coffee from Buena Vista Cafe at the Fisherman's Wharf

That evening, we went to an amazingly gaudy Italian restaurant called Mona Lisa, where we had the BEST gnocchi EVER.  I had no idea these little dumplings could have such an amazing melt-in-your-mouth creamy texture!

Gorgonzola gnocchi with spinach and walnuts....mmmmmm

Chocolate Praline Cake. Ciro, our server, brought one extra on the house

Day 3:

On Monday, we went to a great breakfast at Perry’s in the marina. Unfortunately for you we were so hungry and the food was so good that by the time we realized we forgot to take pictures, the plates were licked clean. After breakfast we did some site seeing and headed over to China Town.

Pork bun in the City! OMG!

Only $1 each 🙂

sweet porky delight

We also indulged in tea tasting with our Chinese Uncle Gee:

Siberian Rose tea

The last supper, before we embarked on the journey home.

The Original Boudin's Clam Chowder Bread Bowl. Wow...
