I Ate San Francisco

I really did. And I loved it.

Two weeks ago the UCLA Men’s Basketball team went to the Bay Area for their games against Cal and Stanford. I took my work on the road and trekked up north in my sturdy steed, Axel (he’s my Honda Accord). Let me just say… I definitely brought the sun with me.

The weekend was a mix of basketball, seeing some of my best friends, and eating a ton of food. I mean, it was perfect. I also got to see the Matisse exhibit. Modern art is some of my absolute favorite. I am a fan of paintings from the early 1900s as well as the graffiti art of today. So here it goes; my collection from the weekend. I hope you like it.

Nicole and I had an incredible dessert pizza my first night there. It was dough, layered with thinly slices bananas, cinnamon, chocolate drizzle, and marshmallows. The perfect thing after a long drive.

Little groceries like these litter the city. Courtney’s was one of my favorites. They had sandwiches and heirloom tomato salads that were so good… and a steal.

Chomping down on my sandwich from Ike’s Place. I was floored at how delicious it was… and am now a huge fan of Dutch Crunch bread.

The chip selection at Ike’s Place. My friend Tracy got the Dill Pickle chips and they were amazing. I went with good old Jalapeno.

There were so many other places I would have likes to see. San Francisco does have such an incredible food environment. And the city is walkable. If you haven’t ever been… GO!
