LOL, I am “Pagoda” but only because I answered yes to being out to sea for long time(I’ve been on a cruise). If it wasn’t for that I would be “Max Fischer”, my favorite character from my favorite Wes Anderson movie.

Olympic Airways//Foals

I saw Foals play an epic show at the El Rey Theatre Tuesday night. It was seriously one of the best and most memorable shows I’ve been to in awhile. They are such a fun and energetic band to watch and they lived up to my expectations. Near the end of the night Yannis even jumped down from stage, walked to the back where the bar was at and proceeded to ask for a shot from the bartender! My grainy blurry pics does not do it any justice but trust me, it was so unexpected and awesome at the same time.

~sigh~ you are just too cute Yannis!

Their latest, Holy Fire, is easily one of my faves so far this year.

Fake tales of San Francisco

Random bits from SF.

We also had an amazing meal at Top Chef Master winner Chris Consentino’s restaurant, Incanto. I sent my mother and step-father there when they went to SF a few years ago for their anniversary and now it was finally my turn to try it out. Let me tell you the food does not disappoint! We shared a couple of pastas for our appetizers and I had the pig’s trotter special for my entree. Everything was soooo yummy but I have to say the highlight for me was the uni pasta. Gosh, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

We started our trip seeing a rainbow and no joke, we saw a double rainbow at the end of our trip. A nice ending to a fun time with my mother and sister.

San Francisco Part 2

SF1I’ve never checked out the farmer’s market at the Ferry Building and luckily for us we were there on the days they were open (Tues, Thurs, and Saturdays). I highly recommend checking it out. We went on Saturday and it was PACKED! There are a lot of cool things to check out but more importantly, lots of good eats inside the building.

We sampled meats at Boccalone, sweets from several chocolate and donut stalls, and of course Miette. I bought my sister the book a couple of years ago and she’s been wanting to visit Miette since. Luckily for us they have a stall inside the ferry building. We tried their macarons and my sister tried a cupcake. Um, omg…the macarons were sooooooo good!!

San Francisco Part 1

My girl’s getaway to SF with my mother & sister was a blast. Our trip was filled with lots of walking, lots of sightseeing, and lots of eating.

This is the first thing we saw when we arrived.

I first heard about Swan Oyster Depot from watching Anthony Bourdain. He is absolutely right, skip Fisherman’s Wharf and head straight to Swan for the freshest and tastiest seafood you will ever have.

We started our first dinner at the highly recommended Commonwealth. This was one of the most gorgeous meals I have ever had in my life. The portions are small but each bite is an explosion of flavors, plus come on, look at my pics. Each plate was a work of art.

This frozen coffee mousse was divine and a perfect ending to our meal!

Meyer Lemon & Chili drink, sounds weird but was refreshing.

More pics to come. Btw, we stayed at the Ritz-Carlton in Nob Hill. The hotel was very nice and so was the area. However, we were entertained each morning by our nude neighbor from one of the apartments across from our window. It became comical each morning when we saw him in the buff…ya gotta love SF and all its eclecticism!
