My Nor Cal trip was way too short; we were only there for about one whole day. Our home base was Fremont, but we took a day trip to San Francisco.
During our 8 hours in SF, we browsed and ate lunch at the Ferry Building, walked around the Golden Gate Bridge area, shopped in the Marina District and ended with dinner at Okoze Sushi. It was a tiring day with lots of walking!
My favorite part was the Ferry Building. Despite visiting SF multiple times, the Ferry Building never made it onto the itinerary. I don’t think I ever even considered going there, which is really surprising given my love for public marketplaces.
We took our time and checked out the whole place as well as the farmer’s market outside (open 3 days a week: Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday) before deciding what to eat.
J chose a lox sandwich from San Francisco Lox.
C and I ate at Boccalone. I really wanted the Mess Piggy (pulled pork with spicy pickled peppers), but by the time we made our way back to Boccalone, they were sold out. So, I ordered the Italian Sausage (hot sandwich), C ordered the Salame (cold sandwich) and we all shared 2 mixed Salumi Cones. DELISH! I sure love me some “tasty salted pig parts”.
Perfect weather. Perfect company. Perfect food.
Even though it was short, I had a great weekend 🙂
