eat it: san francisco

I had been dying to check out the food scene in San Francisco and I planned my trip around breakfast, lunch and dinner! Here are my favourites!ferry buildingThe Ferry Building:This was on the top of my list for checking out in San Francisco. I even came back a second time! Go on a weekend and check out their farmer's market. The Cowgirl Creamery also makes this special Weekend Raclette where they melt the cheese and scrape it on to a piece of toast with housemade pickles. It was to die for!! Also check out their flavoured steamed milks. I loved the vanilla milk! I'm not a coffee drinker but every time I passed by Blue Bottle Coffee, there was always a line up! I'm very picky about my waffles and this one definitely passed the Joanna test. 1 Sausalito - San Francisco Ferry Bldg  San Francisco, CA 94111

slanted doorThe Slanted Door Also in the Ferry Building, is the Slanted Door, a modern Vietnamese restaurant. It was the perfect restaurant to start off our San Francisco adventure. 1 Sausalito - San Francisco Ferry Bldg  San Francisco, CA 94111

park chowPark ChowThis was hands down the best breakfast I had, a breakfast pork carnita was the best way to start the day. Oh and almost everything in San Francisco is either organic or farm to table or farm fresh or grain fed chicken laid eggs or vegan or gluten free. 1240 9th Avenue San Francisco, CA 94122

tacoliciousTacolicious Tacolicious was taco heaven with $30 margarita pitchers to drink myself silly in the middle of the day! 2031 Chestnut St

nopaNopa I loved where we sat when we ate a Nopa, we were up at the top where we could stare down into their open kitchen where we got to watch the sous chefs put together the food. At first we weren't completely blown away by their menu but after tasting our goat cheese appetizers, we knew we were definitely going to order dessert! 560 Divisadero

yamoYamo I had been dying to try Burmese food and was recommended to go to Yamo for it. I find that the best restaurants are usually a hole in the wall. Yamo may not be very attractive inside or out but you can tell it serves up good food judging by the line up outside. When we came, there were people waiting lined up outside at two in the afternoon on a week day! The line goes by fast because the four Burmese ladies inside are super speedy. The place has literally ten seats inside their narrow space, so don't think of coming with a large group.The tea house salad was my fave here. 3406 18th St

foreign cinemaForeign Cinema Everyone I had talked to prior to the trip recommended Foreign Cinema, and I'm glad we ended off our trip with this restaurant. Everything I had, I could have licked the plate clean. They have an outside component to the restaurant where fairy lights are strung up and a foriegn movie is projected onto a brick wall. I would love to host a party there. 2534 Mission Street
