Today’s my day off – a.k.a. time to see my Bay Area Buddies!
First up was brunch with my college friend Shanti. We walked about a mile to a brunch place I had bookmarked to try.
Forgot about all these darn hills in San Francisco! I was definitely huffing and puffing.
Our journey took us into the heart of Chinatown…
…through Little Italy…
…to Mama’s on Washington Square, where a giant line had already formed:
The wait was going to be an hour. Epic fail.
We stumbled into the nearby Cafe Divine instead
There were yummy-sounding eggs and waffles on the menu…
…but somehow I had moved on from the idea of breakfast when I let go of Mama’s
I ordered the Arugula and Roasted Beet salad without goat cheese, but added chicken
Came with a side of focaccia, which I had one piece of
Dressing on the side too – though it was pretty thick so I just dunked my fork in between bites
Shanti gave me a sample of her “Bennies from Heaven”
Two poached eggs over smoked salmon and spinach, served on a house-baked cheddar scallion biscuit. Smothered with Hollandaise:
It was awesome. All eggs benedict should be served on biscuits!
My next date is coming up soon! Gotta go!
