Little known fact to those who haven't visited SF: San Francisco is not the quintessential hot and sunny California you may imagine or see on a post card. It often looks like this: cold and foggy, but beautiful nonetheless. Even more than its beauty, though, I love getting to catch up with friends and family in the City by the Bay.
On my recent trip home, you may recall our adventures feasting on tacos and Italian food. Read on to see and hear all about another fab meal: our girl brunch at Palm House in the Marina!
Girliest drinks ever, from left to right: Mai Tai, Coconut, Prickly Pear Mimosa, Aperol Prosecco Spritz. If I were to go back, I'd definitely get the coconut and / or the prickly pear mimosa again!
Huevos Ranchers, with scrambled farm eggs, black bean puree, crispy tortilla, queso fresco, mojo rojo, and mojo verde. Yum!
I got the Steamed Kalua Pork, with sweet potato, green onion, tomatillo salsa verde, slow cooked eggs, and pork jus. It was so delicious and hearty, and a tad spicy for me but I'm sensitive to spicy foods.
I love the ambiance here! The ceiling is a giant skylight looking up to a palm tree and a colorful Victorian home which San Francisco is so known for.
After brunch, we strolled across the street to Sephora and around the Marina. We then took a 10 minute drive to the base of the Golden Gate Bridge and Fort Point. It was chilly, windy, foggy and perfectly San Francisco.
