San Francisco Food Tour

I went to visit B, and he had some kind of surprise for me. We were going on a food tour through San Francisco! I was so hungry at some points of the tour that I forgot to take photos, so some photos are credited to someone else. It was a lot of fun, first we hit Firewood Cafe in the Castro, which has wood-fired pizza. We shared the Margherita pizza, which was cracker thin and delicious! A great first start to the tour to whet our appetites.

I used the Oink app to find most of the places we stopped at. It's a great resource in SF because there are so many entries for the area in the app. The next place we wanted to go, was the Zuni Cafe but they were closed on Mondays, so instead we went to Roam Artisan Burgers. It turned out to be the highlight of the trip, and I almost wish we could have just binged ourselves there, but we had other places to try. You have your choice of burger meat, and then the style of the burger. They also have some amazing fries and drink choices. We were trying to save some money by just ordering water, so I didn't get a chance to try their shakes, but they look delicious. We ordered a Bison burger, BBQ style, with a side of Parmesan Truffle Fries. The burger was delicious, and I'm pretty sure it beat out my top burger spot. The fries were salty and meaty, crunchy but perfectly cooked. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting SF. It can get a little pricey, but it promises to be delicious food no matter what you order.
BBQ Bison Burger, it has JalapeƱo Relish on it!
Parmesan Truffle Fries, so good we were licking the leftover parmesan out of the bowl!
Since, the burger place was right near the wharf, we decided to head down there and walk around for a bit. After making enough room in our stomachs, we stopped by the Ghirardelli shop and had a Brownie Sundae. I was worried I wouldn't be hungry enough to eat half of this thing, but since it was so delicious, I found a way!

We had finally hit our "full" point, so we went and saw a movie to pass some time, and then got tacos! There's this little taco shop in Redwood City, that's open late, and supposedly had the best tacos in the area. The place is called Taqueria El Grullense, and the tacos were amazing. We ordered 2 each at first, then went back for more. They were very inexpensive, and had this special sauce on it that made them perfect. I tried to make them better with a squeeze of lime juice, but it didn't work out. They were perfect as is!

That was the end of our food tour, we couldn't eat anything else! But it was delicious, and I highly recommend any of these places. Definitely a fun thing to do if you're in San Francisco, since there are so many tasty places that aren't too expensive. Bring some friends, and try a few things at a few different places. I'm absolutely going back to Roam Artisan Burgers, and I've already started a list of places I didn't get a chance to try.
