|"Paul Reubens" sandwich from Ike's Place-it was giant and I saved the second half, which I was very happy to have when I came back to the hotel...rather tipsy...from a vendor party at the Tonga Room with an open bar and a lackluster buffet.|
|Creme brulee and peach ice cream from Bi-Rite (with my charming and elegant college roommate Maria's coffee almond chip cone in the background).|
|Gorgeous pho from Pho 2000--we were going to go to Tu Lan but there was a huge line and this place was next door.|
|Almond butter, caramelized banana, and bacon toast from the super cozy Grove Cafe on Fillmore St.|
|Soft serve from the Straus Family Creamery in the Ferry Building.|
|Beard Papa! I miss the SD location. :-( |
I was excited that their flavor of the week was my favorite, caramel!
Burma Love in the Mission
|Platha & dip -- this was DELICIOUS.|
|Chili lamb, yum.|
|Tea leaf salad-this is their famous dish but we thought it was kind of...too busy?|
Izakaya Sozai -- we loved this meal so much that the taxi driver who took us home remarked that we were the happiest people she'd seen all night.
|Not too bad for three people!|
|Fried ramen egg!!|
|You really should have seen Miko's face while eating this. It was blissful.|
|I will always order yaki-onigiri if I see it on a menu. SO GOOD.|
|We may have gotten two orders of the chashu fried rice. |
Because chashu fried rice.
|I'd never had corn yakitori before!|
|We were super excited about this bacon-wrapped mochi, but we weren't actually that wowed by it.|
|Bacon-wrapped okra, on the other hand, was amazing.|
|Simmered snapper with bacon broth and pea shoots|
|Seabass yakitori -- this just melted in your mouth.|
|Caramelized banana -- this was just okay. |
Order another fried egg instead. Or several.
