We walk, we eat – Salt House

If you have been following my “we walk, we eat” series,  Ariel, Kit and I started our 1 day food journey in San Francisco at Bocadillos and then walked a bit to Anchor and Hope for delicious oysters.

After that we walked a short distance to Salt House which together with Anchor and Hope and Town Hall are owned by same group of successful restaurateurs.

Just like Anchor and Hope, Salt House uses a fun bottle for serving water. Here they used old fashioned milk bottles.

They also serve the same bread from Acme Bread Company. If only my hotel had a toaster in the room I would have brought this bread home. It was no good eating it cold.

Even though we didn’t eat much at the two previous restaurants I was already very full when we arrived. Kit ordered an appetizer for us to share.

This salad was simply wonderful.  The dressing was so creamy and spicy but not hot. The server told us the dressing was made of roasted red pepper, paprika and harisa spice. I’ve never eaten anything like it before.  The shrimp was very fresh, soft and crunchy.

After Salt House we walked to our final destination 3 miles away (letter E on the map below)!!! Of course I didn’t know it then. I was just eager to walk off the fullness in my tummy. I was also excited to reach our destination which was my only request while I was in San Francisco.
