A little airport snafu severely delayed Abe’s work trip to San Francisco last weekend. So I found myself picking him up at Burbank, and hitting the road north!
People gave wonderful food suggestions on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (I compiled a list at the bottom of this post). We wound up arriving a little too late, a little too tired to deal with a parking/lines/reservations, so I yelped the nearest vegetarian-friendly place en route to the city and found Hummus Mediterranean Kitchen in San Mateo.
We were both very happy with our food – Abe got a falafel burger with fries…
…I ordered a half portion of their Greek Salad, with grilled chicken on top.
We got an amazing last-minute hotel deal (unfortunately, the parking was half the price of the room). The next morning, while Abe did his BuzzFeed shoot, I wandered around my overpriced area with Goh and H.P. – we stumbled upon Lori’s Diner…
…and caught up over eggs. I got an egg white omelet, with spinach/tomatoes. Fruit instead of potatoes. Strawberry jelly on my toast.
Two hours later, I wasn’t hungry, but Abe had just wrapped and was starving. So we stopped by Taqueria Cancun in the Mission for a burrito…
…which, of course, I could not resist several bites of. Supremely delicious.
Loved the chips n salsa!!!
And then we were back in the car, back to LA.
Next time I’m in town, I’ll have this list ready to go – thanks everyone for the suggestions!
