San Francisco Part II

San Francisco’s tasty treats were a fun part of each day.

Yes!

Yes!

In the last post I was talking about how much we missed Mexican food, and how it’s really the only kind of food that’s missing overseas.  There is the occasional Mexican cuisine, but nothing like we get in the States.  This place, I think it’s called Del Sol, has been our favorite spot for many years.  It probably seats 6 people, but those six people are lucky to be here, it’s delicious.

These two fed us well on more than one occasion, thanks!

Our hotel, Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square, had a wonderful kitchen and we took full advantage of it.  It was fully stocked with appliances and cooking supplies, we just needed to bring home the food.  We started shopping at the Ferry Building on Pier One and brought home some fresh heirloom tomatoes, basil, pasta, buffalo mozzarella, oil and balsamic vinegar (thanks Dad) for some pasta Caprese.

One of the highlights was shopping in and around the Ferry Building and Farmer’s Market.  We made several trips throughout the week.

Lindsay, this one's for you.  Yes, I had some of my favorite wine.
