Pier 39. Cable cars. Fog. The Golden Gate.
What a city.
I spent last week in San Francisco attending Macworld Expo. I stayed at the Westin downtown which has a concierge to direct you to the Other Concierge. They don't just put a mint on your pillow, you're entire pillow is a mint. I gained five pounds without venturing outside of my room.
There was an in-room French Maid! Uh, no, on second thought there wasn't. I "made" that up. Ha Ha. Ix-nay on the aid-may.
What San Fran lacks in hills and fog it makes up in food, and there were restaurants INSIDE of restaurants. Ridiculous.
Here's the blueprint for the week:
Sunday: Ducca (Westin Hotel, 3rd Street and Market)
Halibut cheeks on inked polenta
Monday: House of Nanking (Kearny St.)
Pork eggroll with sauce
Mu Shu Pork
Beer steamed fish
Tuesday: Chevy's (3rd St.)
Chipotle Cream Chicken Enchiladas
Wednesday: Tiramisu (Belden Place)
Cioppino (seafood stew)
Thursday: Canton Seafood and Dim Sum (Folsom St.)
Jelly Fish with Whole Baby Octopus
Scallops and Shrimp
Chicken Bird Nest
Friday: Chevy's again!
Chipotle Cream Chicken Enchiladas AGAIN!
Peet's Coffee and Tea (Mission St.) - coffee and pumpkin bread
Ferrari's Italian Deli (Mission St.) - salami sandwich with artichoke
Don't recall seeing either a rice or a roni. Maybe next time.
