San Francisco Day 1
June 30, 2010 § Leave a comment
The endless wait for summer break to begin finally stopped. The day after class ended , we flew from humid east coast Orlando to sunny cool west coast San Francisco.
Foremost, driving through the beautiful mountains was a lovely change. The fresh air and sweet sunshine restored our senses as we prepare for the food galore. First stop was at Grand Café, Brasserie and Bar. Stepping into the sophisticated and elegant café, the first question we asked was for the dessert menu. It was to their surprise that we were only there for dessert and perhaps, soccer. The game between USA and Ghana brought in a lot of hyped, but it couldn’t steal our attention from our desserts.
Every cookie was perfectly baked and the texture could not be less chewy nor soft. The flavors were really intriguing. Watermelon and bitter lemon was our favorites. Sweet yet a little tangy on the tongue.
After the heavy meal, we walked a few miles in search for our next destination. Funny enough, the Gay Parade was held in between. Eccentric people, queer folks, awkward exhibitions and many more “raise eyebrows” moments.
The walk to Tartine Bakery & Cafe at Guerrero Street was a good struggle. After burning of some more calories, we were up for some savory food. The line outside the cosy place was really long. The couple in front of us already had a take away box on their hands, but were back for more.
After eating, I understood more why the couple in front of me came back for a second serving. Nom nom nom nom nom is all there is to say now…..
