San Francisco Eats

Every place I ate at SF did not disappoint. I’m so excited to share with you guys the places that gave me the best food comas ( ´ ▽ ` )

 

Marugame Udon

3251 20th Ave Space 184
Not too far from the SFO airport, we drove to Marugame Udon next to a mall. When I’m eating udon, the texture is the most important aspect. It should be chewy but not gooey. Marugame has this down; it tasted like it was hand pulled. The meal was also inexpensive, and you can pair it with tempura veggies/meat and/or a soft boiled egg, as well as anything they had available for an additional price. I also got Spam Misubi because I was starving. This place is so popular that the line goes way out the restaurant during prime time!

 

Namu Stonepot

553 Divisadero St
Namu Stonepot is famous for their humongous stonepot rice dishes. I had the Original NAMU Stonepot Rice with bulgogi beef. Their Sizzling Sisig is also a popular pick. If you order the Sizzling Sisig that’s not the lunch special, it’s enough for 2 people to share. We also ordered the Mochiko Fried chicken as an extra appetizer. The chicken was so good we ordered more of it!

 

Home SF

2018 Clement St
Home SF has been in my bookmarks since I first wanted to go to SF. They exceeded my expectations. I ordered their signature Birthday Cake Latte. I was worried because I’m not a huge Birthday Cake fan but they told me that it was only decorated like a Birthday Cake, and it was actually a Hazelnut Latte underneath all the latte art. I asked for it to be less sweet & the drink I ended up with was just the right amount of sweetness. We also ordered a Seoul Much Avo toast (avocado and kimchi on brioche toast). I was hesitant of that combo but the avocado neutralized the potent flavour of kimchi – it turned out to be scrumptious. The branch we went to was also a cute work spot.

 

Craftsman & Wolves

746 Valencia St
I originally walked into Craftsman & Wolves wanting to get their popular egg muffin, but they ran out! So my friends & I got these cute little desserts instead. These mousses are so fun to cut into! They’re the perfect sized treat. The first one is a Rose flavoured, the second is Yuzu/Coconut & the last one is Passionfruit. My favourite is the Passionfruit one because the combination with the sweetness & tanginess in the mousse was divine.

 

Cafe Réveille

610 Long Bridge Street
If you’re looking for the prettiest cafe in SF, I’m pretty sure Cafe Réveille is it. They have 3 different locations in SF, & I went to the one by the water on Long Bridge St. I got 2 separate spreads on Levain toast, Banana & Almond Butter as well as a Smoked Salmon Avocado & Cream Cheese. I also got a regular coffee as well as a Matcha Latte to go. Everything was delicious & made a wonderful light breakfast. They have bigger meals too which had me salivating at the sight of it!

 

ABV

3174 16th St
Located in the centre of Mission District, ABV is the bar you should be dashing to if you fancy a nice night out or social gathering. I’m not huge into alcohol, but their drinks were innovative & well-made. The thing I will be raving about is their food/bite sized eats. With everything that we tried, my favourites were the Foie Gras Stuffed Olives, Fried Cauliflowers, Japanese ‘Tater Tots’ (deep fried celery), Tartine Toast (pear, brussel sprouts, goat cheese, shiso) and Octopus Fries. The only disappointing thing about this was that our server was really rude & made everything difficult for us.

Along 16th street were so many other restaurants I wanted to try but didn’t have the time to, like Curry Up (I love a good pun) and all these taqueria places. Do you guys have any food recommendations in SF? Let me know in the comments below! You know I’ll be back soon!
