Eating through San Francisco

Husbinator and I just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary (yay us!) The traditional 1st anniversary gift is paper, but we decided we really wanted to go somewhere, so we cheated and said that our hotel confirmation printout would count as paper. Seeing as how I had never been to San Francisco, and it's within driving distance, we figured that would be our celebration vacation destination for elation. We spent about 3 days there, saw the sights, visited all the little district and Alcatraz and had a really wonderful time.

Seeing as how this blog is centered around food, I thought I would share some photos of the places we ate in San Fran. All delicious and reccomended!

Bread bowls at the Boudin Bakery
Our dinner for our first night in. We knew it would be cold in San Fran, but I didn't realize how cold it got, even in the middle of summer. These bread bowls hit the spot. I had tomato basil soup, he got clam chowder. Yummy.

Fresh tomatoes pasta and Garlic BBQ Chicken pizza at the Stinking Rose

If you love garlic, you will LOVE this place. There's a location in Beverly hills, but I hadn't tried it. So glad I did though. There's minced garlic on your table for your bread, along with garlic infused extra virgin olive oil. Check out the menu, it is definitely drool worthy.

Frjtz's Fries
Oh my goodness. French fries. Seriously, I have an undying love for french fries. This place has them. You can get them plain, or with garlic, or with truffle oil drizzled on top. You can get crepes and eggs and stuff too, but who cares? Fries. They have a huge list of fancy dips, such as creamy wasabi mayo, tamarind cashew ketchup, and chipotle remoulade. We chose orange ginger mayo and smokey honey mustard. I miss the orange ginger mayo. The menu is on the site if you want to check it out.

A little candy shop and bakery within walking distance of Frjtz's Fries. Super cute and adorable, but they hold a special place in my heart for carrying a selection of vegan chocolate. A little pricey but everything looks so good, I'm sure it's worth it. I know my Buccaneer chocolate-y nougat-y candy bar was. Mmmmmmm.... so good. They had some adorable little cakes and cupcakes on display,but I refrained.

And of course, no trip would be complete without a little night cap. Cheers!

Beautiful pictures. I am jealous, of both your vacation and the picture taking ability.

Sounds like a great time, and, of course, Congratulations!
