Happy Holidays!!! Since this is a vacation week for many, I'm going to take this opportunity to write about five meals I had in San Francisco during a trip there this fall.
One of my favorite things to do when I'm in San Francisco is to get burritos in the Mission and take them to Dolores Park for a picnic. Go to any of the Taquerias along Mission St. between 24th St and 19th St. to pick up your fare , walk North on Mission St. and make a left on 19th St. Walk a few blocks and head up the stairs that bisect Mission Dolores Park. Go all the way to the Southwest corner where the views of the city are the best.
We went to a place on Mission around 22nd St. (I NEVER can remember the name, I just know how to get there) and got a Carne Asada Burrito that was packed with yumminess like guacamole, sour cream, slices of tasty, tender meat, rice and beans. The best burritos are to be found in San Francisco.
We also got an order of Beef Nachos which were actually pretty gross. You really need to stick with the burritos. They did come with huge slices of avocado, and they were covered in jalapenos, just so you know.
But really, it doesn't even matter what you're eating since you've got one of the best views around - you can see all the way to the Oakland Hills! Gorgeous!
My other favorite thing to do in San Francisco is go to the Farmer's Market down by the Ferry Building on Tuesdays and Saturdays. So many amazing fruits and vegetables, as well as jams, honey, soap and flowers are for sale.
Gorgeous carrots and zucchini:
Little sugar pumpkins:
The best pomegranates I've ever had:
And tons of sunflowers:
