What I Ate in San Francisco


It’s everyone’s favorite: What I Ate Wednesday! This week we’re eating our way up and down the hills of San Francisco, California!

Breakfast

Wow! So apparently crepes are a thing in San Francisco, especially at breakfast. Who knew? We didn’t! I had an amazing Florentine crepe filled with eggs, spinach, cheese, and chicken with a side of fruit, and Steve had a crepe that was more like dessert one morning! It was filled with Nutella and banana with whipped cream. Yum! And of course we enjoyed some coffee–hazelnut latte for me!

Lunch

So first of all, that seafood Cobb salad above is the heartiest I think I’ve ever had. Secondly, the clam chowder and sour dough was the best I’ve ever had (sorry, New England!). The crab sandwich was huge, included cole slaw, and hit the spot because we were REALLY hungry!

Supper

Yes, more clam chowder for me! This time from Fisherman’s Wharf, apparently THE place to get your chowder. The ham and brie sandwich with a side salad and the chirashi (raw fish on a bowl of rice) with miso soup were both takeout from a couple of restaurants close to our hotel. All those hills are exhausting, so Steve and I enjoyed supper in the hotel room a couple of nights! Sometimes things taste better in the room!

Dessert

Seriously, this is why I didn’t mind walking the hills! Ghirardelli chocolate was made famous in San Francisco, and since it’s often chilly and windy, hot chocolate is just right! And just a quick ferry ride over to Sausolito there’s an ice cream shop called Lappert’s. Steve and I both got hot fudge sundaes! Hot fudge, salted caramel ice cream, chocolate chips, whipped cream, and sprinkles topped it all off. Wow!

What should I eat on my next trip to the City by the Bay?
