We’ve spent the past two days running around San Francisco, eating our way through our favorite restaurants in the city, all to declare if we had 48 Hours in San Francisco, Here’s Where We’d Eat.
Nine times out of ten, whenever someone asks us what Yummertime is, they question, “Oh my gourd, I TOTALLY GET IT, you’re a food blog,” to which we reply, “BACK OFF BETCH, no, we’re not!” Which, we’re totally kidding, we’d never say “back off betch;” lately, we’ve just been wanting to be sassier.
But, over 48 hours, we took over OpenTable’s Instagram, ate almost every single hour, and experienced a state of euphoria known only by those who eat for a living. THE DREAM.
Here’s where we ate:
DINNER AT AATXE
Basque tapas and gin-forward cocktails, we basically ate for twelve to twenty — depending on who you are, twelve Chris and Brocks, or twenty starving, but no less determined, supermodels. We ordered the Charred Octopus, Crispy Pork Trotters and Patatas Bravas, among so many others. It was easily the restaurant with the richest flavor profiles on this list.
COFFEE AT THOROUGH BREAD & PASTRY
Without the lines of Tartine or Mr. Holmes, Thorough Bread is, hands down, always our favorite bakery and cafe in the city. THOSE ALMOND CROISSANTS.
BRUNCH AT FOREIGN CINEMA
Nothing can compete with a brunch out on a garden patio. Not to mention, we sucked down those oysters so fast, the waiter was able to use an ‘aw, shucks,’ pun on us… UGH
DINNER AT AL’S PLACE
Four words: pickle brined french fries. We opted for the “Family Style” option on the menu — see, the recurring theme of eating our weight in food for every meal? Where the grits and tonnarelli pasta were INCREDIBLE, nothing compares to those french fries…
BREAKFAST AT THE CAVALIER
Dare we admit our embarrassing next statement: The Cavalier is easily the most Instagrammable restaurant on this list. AND WE LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT. OH MY GOURD. Enormous, south-facing windows, walls painted the prettiest blue, marble torches and white stoneware. Everything was just egg-cellent. Get it?! GET IT?! Because we had breakfast there.
LUNCH AT PIZZERIA DELFINA
In no way could we complete a 48 Hours in San Francisco, Here’s Where We’d Eat list without including pizza. The savior to our chaotic world, Delfina pizza gives us hope. Per our usual routine, we ordered a few boxes, just for the two of us, and headed over to Dolores Park to partake in our feast…
DINNER AT ZUNI
Last, but never least, we finished off our 48 hours with Zuni Cafe, opting to devour an entire chicken. Repeat: an entire chicken.
