more sf lovin' - part two
as promised from my previous entry. day two of my two day weekend getaway in san francisco.
the day i spent at ferry building left me wanting more so i think you can guess where we end up spending the rest of the morning. that and also i read that there is this very great brunch place in the ferry building itself that i wanted to try.
first thing we wanted to do was brunch at boulette's larder which deserves another entry of its own. so watch out for it :)
after breakfast, i wanted to check out each of those specialty stores more carefully and perhaps get ryan's mom a gift from san francisco since her birthday was coming up too. one of the things we saw the day before but didn't try were olive oil. there were quite a variety of olive oil from extra virgin olive oil to some infused with herbs and mixed with balsamic vinegar which can be used as a vinaigrette. they offer some bread cubes so you could sample to see which one you might be interested in getting.
i went into the store, just to see what kind of cured meats they had to offer and then i was utterly curious to know how tasty they were. i think ryan was excited from the sheer variety of these handmade artisan meats that they freshly slice everyday.
after all that good stuff, i wanted to look for hog island oyster co. since tyler florence recommended this place to have the best raw oysters in town - the best thing he ever ate - obsession edition. we looked at the menu, i was tempted (it's seafood!) but we decided to save this for my next trip here to san francisco.
