Shall we do dessert first?
Schoggi is a chocolate shop we stopped at on our way to Yerba Buena. I'd heard about it from a food blog I read, and it didn't disappoint. It offers plenty of the standard chocolates and truffles, and some odd ducks as well. I tried a curry flavored chocolate and was pleasantly surprised!
Smittens is an ice cream shop my brother-in-law insisted we had to try. It was so good, we went twice!
Right across the street from Smittens is Miette, a French-style sweet shop. I'd heard about this one from a food blog I follow, and I'm glad I went!
Roam Burger is an artisan restaurant, as are many in San Francisco. Sorry I don't have pics for this part. I was busy chowing down! Their menu reminds me of Chipotle's, in that you choose a meat, and then a style to assemble your burger. It's certainly enough food! My brother-in-law recommended the Truffle Parmesan Fries. Also, you're not limited to beef or turkey burgers. They also offer organic veggie burgers and bison, of all things. If you're craving a burger, this is the place to go.
We went to many other restaurants, all wonderful, but these are the ones that stood out to me.
