Still onto San Francisco… (second to last post!). We were lucky to have an amazing weather (read: sunny) for our third day. In the morning, we went to the Ferry Building Marketplace, which is an amazing outdoor and indoor food market. We snacked on fresh and organic fruits (plumcots, apricots, etc.), fresh bread, earl grey ice cream and yummy tacos from Tacolicious. The fruits and veggies are so good looking, I wish I could live there all year long just to eat them! My sister forced me to visit the Fisherman’s Wharf (please get me out of that place -_-), but fortunately we didn’t stay super long and moved on to visit the Palace of Fine Arts, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and Sutro Baths.
One of this trip’s highlights is, without a doubt, our dinner at Chez Panisse, Alice Waters’ restaurant in Berkeley. For those who don’t know, she’s the pioneer of the cooking based on fresh, local and organic produce. Needless to say that we were all thrilled, and what a feast! The lettuce comes to the table still crunchy, as if it was picked from the garden a few seconds ago. I am at a loss for words to describe our experience, which I count in my top 3 restaurants. It’s so worth it and I’m happy I could finally tick this place off of my to go list.
