If you are wondering if you're reading the right blog, I assure you that you are. If you follow me on Snapchat (username: AdriLately), you probably aren't too surprised I'm talking about food or drinks. Just as much as I live for shopping, I love trying new places to eat (that includes a good cocktail) and traveling. I've gone on a handful of trips this year and haven't shared what to eat or drink (that's selfish as a blogger, riiight?) One place that was practically a second home to me during my early college years was San Francisco. Now, I still keep going back and trying new spots because you can't taste it all and honestly there's so many great restaurants in that amazingly cold city. Side note: I can't handle weather below 70 degrees. But I will endure it for a trip to San Francisco.
COQUETA // Let me just say that coqueta means flirty girl in Spanish. I had no clue because my Spanish is subpar. It's exactly that. Flavors just flirting with your tastebuds in the best way. It is Spanish and tapas style, so be prepared to order several dishes. It's located right along the water near the Bay Bridge. Definitely a good spot for a special meal. You'll want to make reservations or else you might get lucky with a seat at the bar.
LEO'S OYSTER BAR // If you can't appreciate an Instagram worthy spot, then just get past the picture perfect decor and order a drink. But let's be real-I wanted to take all those mirrors home. We didn't actually have oysters because we had been eating all.day.long. and we had zero reservations. This place is tiny, so make the reservations if you want to be sure about having a meal here. As an avid lover of cocktails, you need to come here. The attention to detail will be tasted. Just order the Garden Cocktail.
LOLO // Your first thought when you hear Mexican food is filling. But this quirky spot in the Mission District was just the right way to start our eating binge. These were fish tacos on thin jicama slices. It's a taco I won't forget. The crunch from the fish and the refreshing jicama makes me want to go back right now. Oh, and you won't be disappointed by the margaritas.
Have you been to San Francisco? Let me know if you have a favorite spot I should add to the list.
