Napa Farms Market @ SFO’s Terminal 2

I wanted to be at the San Francisco Airport’s Terminal 2 early for my flight to Washington DC on Virgin America so I could leisurely walk around and look for something to eat. Unfortunately the line was long and I had to drop off my luggage. It was a good thing I saw Napa FarmsContinue reading “Napa Farms Market @ SFO’s Terminal 2”

Off The Grid: Food Trucks at Fort Mason Center

Food trucks are really popular in the USA specially in San Francisco. I didn’t think I would be able to eat at one considering my short stay in the city. After dropping off my luggage at the Marriott hotel Kit surprised me by saying we were going to Fort Mason Center where all the foodContinue reading “Off The Grid: Food Trucks at Fort Mason Center”

Marriott Hotel, Union Square, San Francisco

After my quick overnight trip to Napa Valley, we returned to San Francisco and I checked in to another hotel. This time I stayed in the newly renovated Marriott Hotel in Union Square.

Ritual Coffee Roasters at Oxbow Public Market

This machine was developed by some Stanford students in 2006 and Starbucks bought them out in 2008. Not all Starbucks stores have the Clover machine but lucky for me the branch at Hotel NikkoContinue reading “Clover Brewing System at Starbucks SF”

Dinner at Cafe Des Amis

Whenever I travel I do extensive research on which restaurants I should try. Some are on my ‘wish list’ like French Laundry while several are more realistic and doable. San Francisco had tons of restaurants that I would like to try but I was only there for a few days so I had to pickContinue reading “Dinner at Cafe Des Amis”

Sightglass Coffee Roasters

I loved the Sightglass Coffee I had at Hooker’s Sweet Treats so much that I went to their store in the afternoon. It was a little less than a mile away from my hotel so I walked. I walk for coffee. There’s no distance to far or near for my beloved coffee. After consulting theContinue reading “Sightglass Coffee Roasters”
