Food Tour SF

Friday I got a chance to go on a food tour of San Francisco. I love working for a company that encourages people to get out there and check out local popular food places.

Here are some highlights:
:: Waiting in line at Tartine to get one of the best pan au chocolates I have ever had in my life, it was worth the wait.
:: Cakes at Tartine are incredible looking, I love the abnormal shape (first photo, left side) the lemon meringue cake is on my wish list. Can you see that toasty brown goodness?
:: Savory pastry selection is incredible, my coworker got the tomato and ham quiche (first photo, right side)
:: BiRite Market, squeezing down the narrow aisles full of lovely olive oils, pasta and cheese. I actually went back today for fresh mozzarella, oregano, olive oil and bread for some bruschetta later this evening.
:: DeLessio Market and Bakery; the Tres Leches Cake and Rabanada looked incredible.
:: Cheese Plus, my friend Ray owns this store so its always nice to see a friendly face. Cool indy ice cream from Ohio and lots of gourmet stuff that is very tempting.

We went made a couple more (not very impressive) stops and then had lunch at Liberty Cafe in my neighborhood, followed by a walk to Sandbox Bakery to get some macarons for dessert.

It was a great day out and about. Thanks Amy for picking me up and driving around the city, I love when work stuff can also feel like fun! It was nice to get out, since I have been cooped up lately.

Stay tuned for Part 2 sometime in the future.

Beautiful pictures and great summary! Although, mine will be slightly different...different audience! :)

Thanks - iphone camera served me well on Friday. Yes, I would imagine your report is very different.
Love that savory pastry selection though at Tartine, maybe someday we will have more.

MAYBE?! We will!
My summary = much more dry and businessy. That's the word of the day.

Oh. My. Gosh. You're making me so homesick! I'm pregnant, too so i'm craving all these foods i can never ever have. the food in our town is like being stuck in a small town mall for your only food. seriously. it's really really bad. i've lowered my standards significantly, otherwise i'd be depressed all the time. you are a very very lucky gal! Oh Tartine. How i didn't appreciate you when i lived right by you. And now that I'm only vegetarian (necessary to survive in small town new zealand while pregnant)... oh, stop me now!

xx miss you!
