Trip to the Golden Coast
I've been MIA on the blog for a few days because I've been discovering California with Joe! T'was definitely a trip of EPIC proportions, especially in terms of food. We ate and ate, and were always hungry for more.
Here's our food diary :)
|Our 1st meal in San Francisco!|
|Haight St... Lamb sausage. So good.|
|Best egg tart of my life; thanks to Khiem for the rec!|
|The perfect late night meal|
|I'd been looking forward to this bakery for about a year. It did not disappoint.|
|Beef noodles and Duck wonton soup for breakfast|
|Ghirardelli fudge... I've never tasted anything like it!!|
|Best carne asada of my life. This was breakfast.|
|Really great ice-cream with unique flavors|
|My aunt and uncle made this amazing meal for us on the first night!|
|Cooked on a stove at our own table! Also served other Korean foods... I was full for 12 hours afterwards.|
|The line was ridiculous. We went here 4 times on the trip.. definitely under the Pinkberry spell|
|I had dreaming about this place since the last time I visited San Jose! Oh orange sauce...|
|Cute cupcake shop in a cute small town of Los Gatos|
In LA, I discovered a new love for Japanese noodles!
|This place had a huge line at 6pm on a Monday night.. definitely worth the wait|
|Chicken and beef ramen. The chicken won. Accompanied with a Calpico; the perfect dinner.|
|Pink's Hot Dogs: That crowd was at 10:30am on a Wednesday!|
|I could have spent hours here if we had discovered it sooner!|
Things I forgot to photograph:
Sprinkles, which had by far the best red velvet cupcakes I have ever tried (And I've never understood the craze for them in the first place especially since they're just devil's food cake) But this was incredibly moist and paired with a lovely cream cheese frosting (although I'd reduce the sugar by a little). We went there twice but ate them too fast for pictures.
We also went to Schubert's Bakery and tried the white chocolate raspberry mousse which was yummy, and Miette at the 1 Ferry Building Marketplace.
Also ate a lot of Pinkberry yogurt with fruit and not chocolate, but all I photographed was the above, so of course Joe and I look like total choco-holics (he did get mochi and yogurt chips) :)
And now, I have to work off all that I ate on this trip.... and look forward to more food comas in India!
