San Francisco Eateries I Insist You Try

Woof, is it really already the halfway point of May? Writing down dates these days constantly has me suspended in a state of disbelief, but I guess it's that saying proving itself right - time stops for no one, indeed.

I've had a bajillion pictures of food in my phone for more than a month now. And I know, I know - phone photos. Blah. But the compactness of my iPhone cannot be beat by anything (except, you know, the latest iPhone. And future iPhones). 

I have four San Francisco restaurants that I insist you try, and by insist, I mean beg. I also insist that you take me, but that one's on you. Don't take this lightly:

 Officially my favorite sushi restaurant in San Francisco.
The sashimi is fresh and light, but the real winners here are the rolls.
Known for their more 'creative' and 'fusion' rolls,
you can literally point to any of their speciality rolls, eat it, and die happy.

But I also highly recommend the butterfish blasters.
You'll certainly have a

 First of all, Slanted Door is located in one of my favorite places of all time -
the Ferry Market Building. So not only can you stop by for a delicious meal,
but also you can grab top-notch ice cream or coffee or yummy breads and cheeses
afterwards; or, if it's on a farmers' market day, you can bring groceries home too.

Asian food - real Asian food - is usually a hit or miss for me.
So my favorite thing about Slanted Door was that I consistently liked everything
that they put in front of me.
But especially, the spring rolls were amaze and that vermicelli was so yum.

Sometimes I like to play tourist in SF.

As you can see a) by my beelining for Fisherman's Wharf all the darn time.
This time, I wanted a friggin lobster roll and I got me a friggin lobster roll.
And it was so worth the meddling seagulls and pigeons.
 b) because I'm easily convinced to stop into a tourist trap.
But I got a pearl out of it. So winner.
 Intermission over,
back on track.

(Don't let my face scare you. It can be scary at times,
but also I was preparing myself for the best oysters ever.)
I mean, I would recommend Cliff House
simply for the breathtaking views alone.
Imagine eating and seeing this in the window next to you. Bam.

So there's that.

But also, the food's delicious too -
get the popovers no matter what,
and the oysters. Theeeee oysterrrrrs.
The whole world is your oyster after slurping these up.
Oh, and those crab sandwiches/melts are also heavenly.
So basically, you can't go wrong.

You're more likely to say 'yes-pa' after eating here.
Sorry, that was so bad.
Holy Batman, that was so terrible.
I'm sorry.

But back to Nopa -
we came here for my birthday dinner,
and I loved every second of it.
From that wonderful legal drink,
to the really tasty starters (not pictured - the fois gras - SO good),
to the pasta that I didn't want to finish because I didn't want to be done with it,
to the strawberry shortcake that taught me how to love.
Love to eat, that is.
Just kidding, I think I was born with that ability.

Anyway, friends, if you ever find yourself in San Francisco, you'll know where to find me. Or, I'll be at E Tutto Qua - my all time favorite restaurant in SF, but somehow I'm always done with my food before I guilt myself into thinking - oh, so maybe one picture might have been nice.

Next time, folks!

  8. I think I need to come back to SF! When I was there two years ago I was sooooo ill and survived off strepsils and room service and a very dodgy Subway roll! Great post - and iPhone photos are totally fine in my book!
