Sorry for the lack of updates. Since my last blog entry, things have kind of been a whirl wind! I can’t believe it’s been 11 months since my last blog post (what a terrible blogger!). Some of you might know that I got married last year. DCM and I had a blast and it was perfect. So after the wedding, we hopped on a plane to America for our honeymoon. One of the stops was San Francisco. Such a beautiful city, with beautiful buildings and most importantly, awesome food!
Chocolate Souffle @ Cafe Jacqueline
So whilst on the flight over I watched one of those ‘secret things to do in San Francisco’ clips. And this led me to Cafe Jacqueline…. a gorgeous french restaurant where you will find the most amazing souffles! There are a variety of savoury and sweet souffles which are all almost bigger than the size of my head! We ordered the chocolate souffle and it was …. RIDICULOUS. In a good way. We pretty much OD’d on chocolate that night!
Bagna Calda – Garlic Soaking in a Hot Tub @ The Stinking Rose
After dessert, we went to dinner at The Stinking Rose, where everything on the menu has garlic on it. One of the must try items is ‘Bagna Calda – garlic soaking in a hot tub’. We were given a basket of bread to dip in the ‘hot tub’. I have never had so much garlic at one time, but it was surprisingly delicious and addicitive!
Burgers @ In-n-Out Burger
Of course, you cannot visit the west coast of America without trying In-n-Out. Everything is made to order and you can customise everything from how you want your meat cooked, how many meat patties you want to how you want your fries fried! There are a lot of items that are not on the menus in store, but available by request (you can look on their website for the ‘not so secret menu’). Definitely worth it.
French Toast Sampler @ Mama’s
Another place that I read about on the flight over was Mama’s (on Washington Square). I read that people queued for hours just to have breakfast here, so of course I decided that we had to go as well. We hoped off our flight and headed straight to Mama’s (with luggage and everything!), we even got lost and SF is not a good place to get lost, with those damn hills! But after a 30 minute queue, our food arrived, and it was all worth it. Our eggs were perfect and the french toast sampler was amazing! I’m not normally a huge fan of french toast, but this was so much better than any I’ve ever had! There was a variety of three delicious home made breads – cinnamon, banana and nut, and blueberry, served with fresh fruit. This was definitely in the top 3 things I ate in 2011! For shiz.
