That new new.
Khai Restaurant – SoMa, High-End Vietnamese
Khai Duong is considered one of the world’s best Asian chefs, and after a 5 year stint in Vietnam, he has returned to SF and opened up an high-end Vietnamese restaurant in SoMa, offering a 10 course tasting menu for $95/person.
Renting out out SoMa’s Bonjour Patisserie space at night, this is quite the Cinderella story.
Mezcalito – Russian Hill
Mezcalito is one of my favorite new restaurants in San Francisco! It’s located right on Polk street in Russian Hill. It is a full restaurant/bar so you can come here to grab dinner at one of their comfy booths or snag a spot at the bar/communal tables for a more low key setting to enjoy a marg and some guac (the essentials).
Chambers Eat + Drink – Tenderloin
This spot is not a new addition to the SF food scene (they opened back in 2011), but they have debuted 2 new specials that are worth highlighting!
For those who aren’t familiar with Chambers – it is a swanky/trendy bar/restaurant located in the Tenderloin, even if you haven’t been here, there is a 99% chance that you have seen an instagram of their iconic “Be Amazing” lights (100% chance if you are a female in her 20s who loves yoga and goldendoodles).
First off, what an amazing trip #blessed. After receiving quite a few questions about where to stay, how to get around, what cities to visit, etc. I decided to turn my Type A extremely detailed itinerary into a more user friendly format so others can repeat what we did well ($6 massages, elephant sanctuary), and stay away from our mishaps…1 missed ferry, 1 missed flight, 1 motorcycle crash, and 2 double booked hotels…oops. Below is your guide to: Chiang Mai, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Phuket, and Koh Phi Phi.
I spent this past weekend in Napa/Sonoma with my family to celebrate my parents 25th anniversary! Had such a nice weekend, thought I would share my itinerary in case others are looking to make a day or weekend trip out there for wine tasting! Where to eat and drink (Bottega, Gabrielle, and Hall are my favorites!), as well as where to avoid. 🙂
New Food Delivery
First off, who doesn’t like food delivery? SF has become the mecca for all these really cool services that satisfy my inner laziness – food delivery and gas on demand are my personal favorites (check out the app booster for gas…it’s amazing). Don’t get me wrong I love cooking, but there is something so satisfying about delicious food coming directly to your door – no dish washing required.
I LOVE pizza. Nothing beats that first bite into a freshly baked slice, with just the right amount of Parmesan on top, but not every pizza is created equal. So here is a guide to the best pizza for every occasion. Enjoy 🙂
San Francisco is a haven for foodies. So many amazing restaurants within a few miles of each other #blessed. All these places are seriously amazing for one reason or another, but the one thing they do have in common is difficulty in getting a reservation. So read up, go online, and make your coveted reservations for 30 days out on a Tuesday at 9 pm….good food is worth it right?? But seriously if anyone can get a reservation to State Bird, I’m a great addition to the dinner table and my calendar is open.
Hayes Valley is a hidden gem of neighborhood, it is like the Marina matured a little bit past the fratty college stage, and blossomed into an underrated adult-ish haven where you don’t have to walk past the bar you stumbled out of at 3 am the night before (Brixton…guilty). Hayes really does have it all- chicken cooked to perfection at Zuni Cafe, sashimi on point at Domo, shopping at Rand & Statler and Azalea, steins of beer at Biergarten, the perfect setting for a glass of wine at Fig & thistle, and to top it off multiple options for post-dinner ice cream – Smitten and Loving Cup I am referring to you…what else does one need in life? I obviously recommend every place below but I have to reiterate everyone should go to Domo. Just go.
