san francisco eats, part deux

Here's a little recap of the rest of our san francisco weekend, before i headed back to winter in boston:

EOS Wine Bar in Cole Valley. They have, maybe, the best brussels sprouts ever, previously discussed by Darcy.

The Squat and Gobble for breakfast. Standard fare made well, and great tofu scrambles!

Magnolia in the Haight. Lovely little snacky plates (including fried spring onions and a pickle assortment), in addition to full meals. And great beer. Oh, and if you have ever wondered what a BU was in reference to beer, it's a Bitterness Unit. Thanks to d for solving that mystery!

Little Star Pizza for a late night pizza craving:

Frjtz where we had, you guessed it, made to order, hand cut fries with delicious dipping sauces. We opted for the thai chili (like sriracha ketchup) and an olive tapenade. Yum.

and a delicious dinner of homemade falafel and pita (from Smitten Kitchen) with a variety of accompaniments, including Kris' delish sundried tomato hummus and Darcy's equally tasty tabbouleh and tahini dressing.

Oh, and no trip to San Francisco would be complete without a visit to the Ferry Building, and a few of my favorite places on earth: Acme Bread Company (for their olive bread; really, it's all delicious, but this one takes the cake), Cowgirl Creamery (for just about anything. This time it was their Mt. Tam Triple Cream) and Ciao Bella (where we picked up a pint of Lemon Passion Vodka sorbeto to go with farmers market strawberries. Again, yum).

All around a tasty weekend! AND your yumcoast duo will be reunited very soon in Boston for more eats, drinks and fun!
