Eggs Benedict from Chow on Church. Eggs Benedict (or eggs bennie as some fans affectionately call it) is just one of those things I love to have at breakfast/brunch/lunch. It’s not that difficult to make, but it sure does take effort. Yum. I love San Francisco – the food is awesome.
Brian had found this so-called tapioca heaven long before I visited during my birthday trip. First day in San Francisco, he took me up to the Richmond area to experience this long awaited bubble journey.

A couple months ago, I visited my friend Adrian and his girlfriend Naomi, out in Oakland. It was a beautiful day so we decided to walk up to 40th Street in Oakland for lunch – Homeroom. A fresh, airy joint specializing in mac and cheese… mmm.

Before I left for my San Francisco trip over Memorial Day weekend, Trish mentioned the Buena Vista Cafe – best Irish coffees, hands down. She even mentioned a story about her trip to the Jameson distillery (in Ireland!) and how the bartender there asked her to compare a true Irish-served Irish coffee with that of Buena Vista’s. Trish said Buena Vista was better. So, I dragged Theresa with me onto the F train. We walked up to the cafe after a leisurely stroll through Fisherman’s Wharf for clam chowder (of course).
The verdict? It was good, but I don’t have much to compare from past experiences. At $9 a cup with all that hype, I would have been extremely disappointed if it wasn’t at least good though.
However, I think a trip to Jameson’s is needed. Theresa – let’s go!
San Francisco / Mission District – Chad Robertson was recently featured in Bon Appetit magazine. I think the quick profile on him makes me love him going to Tartine even more. I also love the photo by Martin Schoeller. The bread pudding – just one reason to love him his baked goods. Uh, Tartine’s baked goods.
