In anticipation of our trip to San Francisco, I've been reading Fodor's San Francisco and California books, researching restaurants, parks and adventures online and looking at maps to figure out our best routes for the four days we'll be out there. Sunday morning, I found the Man vs. Food episode for San Francisco. I ran upstairs, grabbed my husband and dragged him away from his (eh HEM) video game, so he would watch the episode with me. It started with gigantor delicious looking burritos from Taqueria La Cumbre in the Mission District. Our mouths were definitely watering after seeing those burritos. The next place Adam Richman went to was Ike's Place. It was decided. We must go there.
Oh yeah. Those are jalapeno poppers and mozzarella sticks, onion rings and 4 or 5 different types of meat on that sandwich. It is so ours. Don't judge. We like food. We like food that offers you an explosion of happiness in your mouth when you bite into it. I think this sandwich will fulfill that.
Also, as much as I think this looks delicious, I know I can probably eat three bites and I'll be full. I also think we need to stop by this place that Bakerella wrote about recently. Cotton Candy on top of cupcakes. Yes. Please. American Cupcake, here I come.
Ok, so we have our sandwich and cupcakes covered. We'll get ourselves some sourdough and might even get chowder in it! Yup, we don't mind being tourists when we're...being tourists. On that note, we are going to go to Fisherman's Wharf and it's going to be awesome. We're also going to Alcatraz. That is going to awesomely touristy, as well. Oh right, know what else we're gonna do? We're going to drive the 17 Mile Drive You know, what "locals" know to stay away from? Yup, we're gonna do it. Why? Because it's famous for a reason.
We're there for 4 days together. Any other suggestions on what we should do to really own our tourist experience in San Francisco? Anything else we should definitely eat while we're there? We really like to eat.
