Farmer’s Market – Ferry Building

Remember how I mentioned that we went to the Farmer’s Market last month? Today, I’m finally going to walk you through what we had there that day!

We started our day with some ice cream for breakfast.

Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee & Secret Breakfast

Their Blue Bottle Vietnamese Coffee is the best coffee ice cream evaaar. It’s bitter but has the sweetness you expect from ice cream (whereas others tend to taste a lot more like sugar than coffee).

If you like cereal and bourbon, then you’ll absolutely love their Secret Breakfast because it’s a happy marriage of the two ingredients! It may sound like an odd combination, but they make it work and it’s their most popular flavor. They make cookies using Kellogg’s corn flakes and bake them until they become so crispy that they won’t become soggy when mixed into the ice cream. The bourbon adds a slight warmth while the crunchy corn flakes add a nice texture.

Humphry’s is one of my favorite ice cream places not only because they offer unique flavors (that they execute flawlessly), but also for their wonderful customer service. So much better than Bi-Rite!

For lunch, we had food from one of the vendors outside of the building.

“Zilla Hot Dog”

My boyfriend got their Zilla Dog, which was topped with kimchi, chicharonnes, scallions, and their “money” sauce. Except for rare occasions, I avoid hot dogs because they’re too salty for me. 4505’s hot dog was salty (as expected) but flavorful. Their chicharonnes were airy and crispy like Asian shrimp crackers. My boyfriend thought the hot dog overall was good, but not amazing.

“Best Damn Cheeseburger”

I, on the other hand, got one of their burgers. This was also good, but not the best. The grass fed beef patty was tender and a nice medium rare, but it needed more seasoning. However, the gruyere cheese was beautifully melted, and the toasted handmade sesame brioche bun (wow, that’s a mouthful) complimented the burger as a whole. It got messy to eat later on though because the bun soaked up the juices of the meat so well. This small burger costs $9, making it a little pricey. Is it worth trying? Ehh, that’s hard to say.

Not pictured from 4505 is their Lime Mint Iced Tea, which is basically a non-alcoholic earl grey mojito! It was refreshing, not too sweet, and perfect to have in the hot weather that day.

We then headed back into the ferry building to have a post-meal snack.

Chicken Dumpking and Crab Croquette

Chicken Dumpling and Crab Croquette

The chicken dumpling is more like a meatball instead of the normal wrapped dumpling you would expect. It’s $3 for this sweet and savory thing that’s smaller than a sauce container, but it’s ohhhh so good. Personally, I’d rather buy a bunch of these instead of spending the same amount on macarons!

The crab croquette, similarly priced, was so rich and creamy that it seemed to mold everything we had eaten so far that day together in our stomachs. It made us quite full.. But that didn’t stop us from continuing our food adventure!

Boccalone

MEEEAAAAAAT COOOONE

Here, you could customize a cone with three high quality pig parts of your choice for only ~$7!! My boyfriend got prosciutto, headcheese, and lardo. I don’t like headcheese, but I’ll admit that theirs is pretty amazing. And think eating a piece of pure pork fat is gross? Have their Lardo Iberico de Bellota and try thinking that again. As it melts in your mouth, you’ll be converted to a fat lover if you’re not one already!

I love roses but I honestly wouldn’t mind getting a bouquet of these instead. *coughcoughnudgenudge

Afterwards, we walked around and enjoyed the nice weather with happy food babies in our stomachs.

Happy 2015!!

Hope you all have been having a great year so far. The first post of this year goes to my favorite fast food place – In N Out! In fact, this is the only fast food I like.

Okay, let me be honest. ‘Like’ is an understatement because I actually LOOOVE this place!!

I may have a slight problem though because I’ve had In N Out SIX times in the past SIX weeks… yesterday being the sixth time l o l. Although it is on the healthier end of fast food, I think I should restrain myself before this streak becomes an unhealthy addiction. Gotta lose the belly I’ve gained over the holidays, after all!

Left to Right: Animal Fries, Double Double, Cheeseburger

But just look at that. Freshly baked buns, patties handmade with high quality (and never frozen!) beef, hand-leafed lettuce, real American cheese, and fresh tomatoes and onion.. How can you resist?! (more…)

Rave Burger

I have so many pictures of food I can’t write accurate reviews for because I either had them too long ago to remember or without the intention of writing about them. BUT these pictures need a home so I present to you.. a new category, yay! This page will contain just pictures of food – so the only words you see will be the bare minimum. And of course, I won’t post any places I wouldn’t recommend 😉

Good News

I’ve been reunited with my camera!! You know what that means? You get to see some of the yummy food my friends and I had at Outside Lands a week and a half ago ^____^

Pork Belly Burger

Pork Belly Burger

Food was pricey, as it always is at festivals, but well worth it for items such as this pork belly burger ($8) and others:

Chimichurri Fries

Chimichurri Fries

Tater Tots

Spicy Tater Tots

Beer Sausage

Beer Sausage

Not pictured that I personally think was the best from the festival was the Gilroy Garlic Mac & Cheese! It was so garlicky, gooey, cheesy, and creamy, as good mac & cheese should be.

I only went one day this year, but I’m definitely interested in going to Outside Lands more than one day next year not only to have more time to enjoy the music, but to eat more food hehe. If you went this year, was there anything in particular that you liked? Leave a comment below!
