Today I took a trip into San Francisco with Jamie to meet a friend of ours from the East Bay! The ferry is always a nice way to avoid city parking.... We actually spent quite a lot of time in the ferry building because of all the yummy food! I love it in there. Here's a photo diary (mostly of food) of our day.
I found Waldo! Desert empanadas at El Porteno... Empanadas are from Argentina, like Jamie!
Food-food empanadas! I had the Jamon Y Queso for lunch. SO GOOD. GO GET SOME.
Alfajores... Jamie had me take these pictures to send to her host family in Argentina.
A gluten-free dairy-free turkey sandwich Jamie had from Mariposa. I even thought the bread was good haha.
Gorgeous flowers at the farmer's market outside. Lunch can either be free, or expensive at the ferry building. If you play your cards right you might get enough fresh fruit and almond brittle samples to tide you over.
We got on a random bus and ended up getting off at Union Square for a little shopping... We all got new outfits (that we wore out of the store) at Forever 21. I had a headache so I figured a caffeine pick me up was in order. This is a black tea unsweetened boba with a shot of espresso and stevia from Blue Bottle Coffee Co. Imagine how annoying I was ordering that. This picture I took on the bus back to the ferry building.
I ate small things throughout the day so I could eat a lot. Maybe not my healthiest day but it was so good! For dinner I grabbed a vegetarian bun from Out the Door on our way back through the ferry building. I love dim sum buns, but a lot of them have barbecue (which I dislike beaucoup). This one didn't so Carli was very happy. We also snuck in a peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream (recommended a la the guy who worked there) from Humphry Slocombe. I finally understood why both places had such huge lines!
My name is spelled weird. They never have my name on water bottles or bike license plates or necklaces... expect right outside the ferry building! This is a hand stamped necklace on a penny, priced at $15 but I got it for $10! What a steal.
At Union Square we stopped at Lush (but of course). They were all out of fresh face masks so I went for Mask of Magaminty. I will upload a review later!
Thanks for reading this, have a good day :)
