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 blast...er.
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.
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.
