food fool.

San Francisco was amazing this past weekend. The weather was incredible. It was actually hot! I was walking around in a tank top with no jacket at 9pm. Almost unheard of..

Anywho, while in SF we did lots of walking! Hung out in different neighborhoods that we don't normally get to spend a lot of time in. And of course we did lots of eating. 

Here is a nice sampling of some of the treats we had. =)

Blue Bottle Coffee. It's the best! 

 Boccalone. Meat Cone. Flavorful salami 

Umami Burger recently opened up a location in SF. You might have heard about the famous burger joint that's originally from LA. The namesake burger was awesome. So many different flavors going on! 
 Cheese tots. Not on the menu... you have to ask for them. Plus umami ketchup. I don't want the regular stuff ever again.  

For a mid day pick me up we found our way to the Tipsy Pig. We had a few rounds of a drink called Strawberry Fields. Delicious and could be dangerous. 

We ended up at a place called Farmer Brown for dinner. Soul food. Started with jalapeno biscuits and an apple jack. I then remembered that I'm not much of a bourbon drinker...oh well. 
 Fried chicken, mac n cheese, and greens. Pretty darn good. 

We ended up at blue bottle coffee again for breakfast... But for lunch we went to a place called Cha Cha Cha on Haight st. It was a cool funky place. My friend told me about it and said we must get some sangria. I didn't argue. I'm a big sangria fan. 
 Fried plantains with beans as our tapa 
 And a Cuban sandwich to share which came with plantain fries. yum!

I love trying new restaurants and finding the places that locals like to eat. It's a passion of mine. I travel through my stomach. =) 

I wish I left all those calories in SF... sad to say they came home with me and I will be working out lots this week. ha!

i've loved reading through your SF posts. sounds like a super fun trip to the big city! and you hit up some of my favorite places {did you try "special breakfast" at humphry slocombe's? oh lordy!}. i used to have this rule that i had to eat at a different restaurant every time i ate out when i lived there. the good news is, when you walk all those hills every day, it doesn't matter how much you eat! that was the life...

Chris' mom makes fried plantains and beans as one of the regular dishes and they mix cream cheese in the beans... i just use the cream cheese obviously :p

I'm going to have to try that meat cone place! unless if all they have is salami...

I'm hungry now. thank you. lol

As if your other post on SF wasn't enough to make me dream of the city, this one puts me over the top! Great food finds.
