I don’t want to blog about how bitter I am to be back in cold, rainy Boston with lots of work to do. I’d rather just dream about my next vacation and reflect on how wonderful our last day in San Francisco was:
I slept perfectly at Emily’s and there was even a fire burning to keep me warm! We slept late and went for a mini walk/jog along the water before heading out for brunch.
We walked to a cute cafe in the marina called Abigail’s, where I got a massive croque madame with black forest ham on a thick piece of brioche bread. T’was scrumptious and kept me full for hours. This was a good thing because Matt and I did a walking tour from Fisherman’s Wharf through Ghirardelli Square and back to the marina district.
The weather was quite cold, but the sun was warm and the views were worth the chill.
These guys are just so entertaining….I could stand and watch them forever.
We had a flight to catch, so Emily took us to an early dinner at a restaurant she knew we would love — The Slanted Door.
I had a fun whiskey smash, complete with a view of the Bay Bridge.
The three of us split 2 entrees and 2 apps to maximize tasting opportunities.
Imperial spring rolls with pork + shrimp and barbecued pork spareribs with honey-hoisin sauce. Holy cow pork, these ribs were to-die-for. They were sooo freakin juicy and the sauce was perfect. Hands down my favorite item.
For entrees, we ordered the famous grass-fed shaking beef: cubed filet mignon, sausalito springs’ watercress and lime sauce, as well as the chicken claypot with caramel sauce, chillies, and fresh ginger. Both amazing, especially the caramel sauce!
Many thanks to Emily for hosting and taking us to amazing eateries:)
Oh, and when we got off the red eye at 7 AM, we split a banana cupcake stuffed with caramel and iced with cream cheese frosting for breakfast before going right back to bed.
I miss San Fran food…nothing in my fridge tastes as good:(
Sweet dreams friends.
