Just realized today that we have another long weekend coming up this month! I’m thrilled. If I could, I would fly myself to San Francisco and re-do my recent trip that I took there with my friend Mariko over MLK weekend. Our only objective was to eat delicious food. We planned our entire day around where we would eat next. I realize that this kind of trip is not for everyone. Had I not been familiar with the Bay Area I would have taken the time to explore some sites, maybe.
If you find yourself in San Francisco for three days and are looking for good food you can hit up some of the places we went to. Below is our three-day itinerary and then below that is a list of fifty places you should put in your San Francisco bucket list.
Day 1 : HNL –> SJC –> San mateo –> SF
In-N-Out: Classic California burger
Krispy Kreme: No Krispy Kreme on Oahu, so when I’m on the mainland it’s a must!
Ramen Dojo: In my opinion best garlic pork ramen ever! Very much worth the wait.
Zero Zero: Wood-fired, thin-crust pizzas, with some incredible appetizers and desserts like their soft serve ice cream and dulce de leche bread pudding.
Day 2: SF –> San Jose
Tartine Bakery: Flakiest croissant. Phenomenal banana cream pie. Perfect Quiche.
Ferry Building: Go with an open mind and a hungry stomach
Mezcal: If you like moles this is your place. The black mole made from chiles, spices, seeds, and chocolate is phenomenal.
Day 3: SF –> Berkeley
Craftsman and Wolves: Contemporary pâtisserie. Also, a good place for people watching.
Mission Pie: Super friendly staff, books about sustainable food to read, and a great selection of savory and sweet pies.
Chez Panisse: This place had been on my bucket list forever. It was so epic I wish I lived in Berkeley so I could become a regular. Their downstairs Monday night dinners is the way to go if you want the affordable Chez Panisse experience.
