The Alembic Bar – Haight Street San Francisco

Last time I was in SF I had some delicious cocktails at The Alembic, and of course had to come back again. I ordered the grilled beef jerky as a snack – worth the wait!

Their version of a Manhattan (New B.F.F.) and bourbon old-fashioned were STRONG (!) and delicious. They also had girl scout cookie cocktail pairings.

A wonderful place to step out of the rain for a snack and drink.


Hog Island Oyster Company – Ferry Building, San Francisco

I took a quick (less than 24 hour) trip to the Bay for work last weekend and ended up at the Ferry Building for lunch. One of my favorite things to do is peruse the Ferry Building for interesting food like mushroom jerky and stinky cheeses. An always necessary stop is the Hog Island Oyster Company which has thankfully increased exponentially in size since the last time I went there. The oyster sampler is always delicious and if you sit at the Oyster Bar or outside you get a lovely view of the Bay Bridge.

The Oyster Po Boy did not disappoint. I recommend sharing and ordering a ton of stuff off the menu. Not pictured – the Fried Oysters and Waffles are another must-order.
