As promised, here is the food part of my trip summary. But this is only the San Francisco part of the trip, there will be a separate post (or posts) for the Marin part. I’ve just had too much good food, and it could not possibly be contained in one single post.
Chocolate covered strawberry, with ghirardelli chocolate of course.
Wednesday night, my dad and cousin and I went to a restaurant called the Slanted Door. It was beyond amazing.
green papaya salad with pickled carrots, tofu, caramelized shallots, and roasted peanuts.
steamed kale, with garlic and some light sauce, I can’t remember what it was…
cellophane noodles with dungeness crab. We had a few other things as well, but these were some of the highlights.
The next day, my dad and I had lunch at a little place on the Haight called Blue Front Cafe.
I had a vegetarian hummus wrap with eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes, lettuce and cucumbers in a lavash wrap. It was huge, way too much food, but so worth it.
While wandering around the city on my way to the golden gate bridge, I happened on this little place.
mini vegan raspberry cupcake with peanut butter frosting, and kombucha from the tap mixed with carrot ginger juice. Tiny, but a perfect little afternoon pick-me-up.
For my last lunch in the city, I went out to lunch with some family at Green’s. I’m just going to let the pictures do the talking.
first – tofu spring rolls, asian mushroom garnish, hoisin sauce.
Main – the sampler plate! All local, organic produce. Tabouleh with heirloom tomatoes, arugula and beet salad, hummus, grilled squash, marinated feta, grilled pita and olives. Absolutely perfect.
vegan berry-apricot crisp with almond sorbet. This blew my mind!
The very last stop in SF, vegan froyo!
Mine on the left – organic soy froyo with blueberries, toasted almonds, coconut, and shaved chocolate. Erin’s on the right – same with granola instead of almonds. We definitely need more of this in the world.
From your comments, you all have been to some really great places, and everyone seems to love Europe! As do I 🙂
