Too much pig.

On a rainy Sunday, my friends and I wanted to find a place indoor to hang out for a bit besides the mall and one of the options was the Ferry Building. I personally think it’s a great place to visit on a warm Saturday because they have their infamous Farmer’s Market, and it’s always fun and entertaining to browse around and have brunch there.

Anyhow, one of our stops was a petite meat shop called Boccalone which has prepared salted pig parts. This was my second visit ever, and I still am struggling with the fact that I ate pig head. I know I’m Asian and everything, and I’m assumed to be open to eating “exotic” foods, but perhaps I’m a disgrace, or I don’t entirely fall under the norm!


Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream.

Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream in the Mission is probably one of my most favorite spots to visit when I’m craving some original, flavored ice-cream. I’m addicted to their Secret Breakfast and Vietnamese Blue Bottle Coffee flavored scoops. And I truly believe the best days to eat ice-cream are on rainy, chilly spring days like we have so often in San Francisco. I know, it sounds odd, but there’s some sort of romantic, melancholy feeling to all of it. Okay, maybe that’s pretty standard.

Gelato still has a special place in my heart though that ice-cream just can’t seemingly compete with.

No sitting outside because the seats are wet.

This is way too much ice-cream for one person.

Cute boy in his raincoat. 🙂 I swear, my biological clock is not ticking!

Oh dreary days like these, how I would like to kiss thee goodbye.

The nice boy that served us.

Check out the flavors.

Can I have some Philz?

Sunday my out-of-town friends and I visited Philz Coffee in the Mission. Supposedly it’s the best coffee in the city, but I wouldn’t know since I don’t drink coffee, and if I do . . . I drink it with lots of sugar. Anyhow, we got stuck at Philz for a good few hours because it was pouring dogs and cats outside.

I got 1lb of Tesora Medium Roast for my coworkers too. According to their website, the Tesora is described as, “This blend is the godfather of all blends, truly the real deal. Seven years in the making and the first blend to ever be created, the Tesora is a treasure that consists of the most valuable and complex jewels of coffee.Tesora is the house blend and an awesome example of a smooth, rich, full-bodied coffee, with no acidity or bitterness. A sip of this popular blend will surely make you go MMMMMMMM!!!! If it is your first time visiting Phil’z coffee, we highly recommend you order our Tesora blend. Tesora, A grand representation of our coffee and the way coffee should taste!”
