I’m in my favorite U.S. city, hanging out and eating and drinking all kinds of goodies! We’re in the Salad Bowl of the country, people! Who needs meat! Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite meatless meals, a blast from the past when I once called myself (briefly) a San Franciscan…go Giants!
Huevos Rancheros from Boogaloos in the Mission. Perfectly salty beans, runny eggs, warm corn tortillas.
Potato, carrot, mushroom burrito with extra special sauce from Papalote. Add guac duh.
A late-morning cappuccino and saffron vanilla bean Snickerdoodle from Blue Bottle in the Ferry Building.
While we’re at the Ferry Building: a light lunch at Mijita: a salad of jicama, grapefruit, avocado and pumpkin seeds.
A simple spaghetti dinner at Delfina, with seasonal plum tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, peperoncini. Sit outside if you can.
Head to the Marina. Pizza Ricotta at A16 is where it’s at: sea salt, ricotta, arugula, olio nuovo. Sit at the counter if you can.
Richmond bound? It’s Aziza for Moroccan. Couscous, fig, eggplant, chickpea, flatbread to die for.
Pretty much need to round out any day with a little somethin’-somethin’ from Bi-Rite Creamery. How about a S’more Ice Cream Pie? A little scoop of toasted coconut ice cream? Add a lemon gingersnap cookie, son.
