So I came back to SF this weekend, and right when I did, two of my friends asked if I would like to hang out with them. Of course, I said, “Yes” even though I ditched my sister in the process. I did invite my sister, though, but she declined. 😛
We had brunch at this Thai-Asian fusion place called Me & Tasty. Everything on the brunch menu looked appetizing and I wanted to order everything, but I couldn’t. I guess I’ll have to go back there again, especially to try out their dinner menu.
For brunch, I had their pork belly and grits (creamy grits, Burmese pork belly stew, and scallions), as well as their rainbow grilled cheese toast.
As for my friends, one of them got a duck burger which is something new on their menu. I am not a big fan of duck meat but I got a taste of it and I must say, it tasted like chicken.
My other friend ordered a “salmon benny” (Wild Alaskan smoked sockeye salmon, avocado, arugula and hollandaise sauce) and an eel taco (corn tortilla with unagi, fried avocado, cucumber, scallion, sesame, seaweed salad).
After that, we went to Dandelion Chocolate for dessert. My friend, Mel, told me that I had to try their European drinking chocolate. It’s Italian inspired and it’s very rich and dense. Basically, it’s just pure chocolate. You can dip housemade marshmallows in the chocolate too.
I recommend both these places if you ever visit San Francisco. Me & Tasty is located in the Castro district, so you would not only be visiting a delicious restaurant but also get to sightsee the Castro district with its rich culture and history. Trust me, it’s an interesting place.
As for the Dandelion Chocolate, the store originated in Japan and it’s always busy and crowded. That was the downer, but you should at least visit it once if you are in the city. It’s pricey but definitely worth it!
