As I walked through a living Train song, I kept telling myself, “You will be back to San Fransisco!”
While we only had a couple hours to walk around before heading south to Monterey, we managed to see a couple sites. We ate a delicious brunch at a small cafe not far from my friends place, Judy’s Cafe. The omelets, pumpkin loaf, and quesadillas were all delish…AND I managed to parallel park on the first try! Score me!!
We walked the couple blocks down to the wharf and saw the Golden Gate and Alcatraz in the bay. I got my piece of free chocolate at the Ghirardelli store, the stopped in a cutsie cupcake store for a treat. The cupcake was carmel and fluer de sal, sooo rich!!
We also stopped and got some taffy, do you notice a theme here..??! I love how Kasey and I look so mesmerised by the candy..:)
We also drove on the most winding road in America, Lombard Street. It has crazy switch backs at about a 75% grade. Amazing view, but I was glad I wasn’t driving!
When I returned a couple days later, my good friend took me out to eat at Parma
, I had the best salad and eggplant Parmesan!
I hope to recreate the salad soon, it had romaine lettuce, toasted pine nuts, Gorgonzola, a slice of grilled pear and vinaigrette! So good!! It was great seeing my friend from high school, a lot has changed in the last six years! She is getting married soon and I can’t wait for her wedding 🙂
Although only my first trip, I know I will be back. There was too much I didn’t get to see and eat! Save me San Fransisco!!
