I’m a fattie, especially when I’m in San Francisco

I love food
Food loves me
I’m a hungry girl you see
With a great big bite
And my happy eyes alight
Won’t you chill in my belly?

If read wrong, I sound like a cannibalistic psycho.  But really I’m trying to express my love of food through my rendition of Barney’s song.

I love to eat, especially on weekends, and this past one in San Francisco was no different.  I went with one of my old roommates to visit another UCLA friend (GO BRUINS!!!).  It was fun times and lots of eats.  One of the best parts was seeing old college friends I hadn’t seen in ages.  Of course they all eluded me when it came to picture-taking time but I did what I could! :)  This post is dedicated to all you SF people! :D

Enjoy all the food pictures… :P (Note: I’ve included my Yelp reviews of each location for your convenience :) Just click on the name of the place!)

I was very excited to have dinner with and see these two lovely ladies (Isabel & Carolyn)!!  If you remember, Carolyn was one of the first people who inspired me to start this blog in the first place!  Read my first post, HERE :)

Let’s see some sweets, shall we? :P

Right:  The catch (tilapia) fried in big daddy beer batter, served with tartar sauce, & weird fries (regular + sweet potato)

The Campanile in Berkeley

After all that eating, exercise is greatly sought after any chance possible.  So we walked up the 7 flights of stairs to get a view of Berkeley from The Campanile, right?  WRONG.  We took the elevator :P

Isn’t my travel companion, Christina, so cute?  She’s so little, so to embarrass her further, I attempted the splits to be more on her level.  I may have exaggerated just a tad :P

Can’t wait to come back to leisurely visit all the geeky museums and eat more food.  Until next time, y’all… ;)

    I think I just gained a few pounds from just looking at all your pictures. Haha.

    That Japanese Tea Service looks very interesting…something I’ll consider when I travel up north. And that ice cream looks DELICIOUS! At first glance I thought it was pumpkin flavor…I think I’ve had too much pumpkin these past few days. :P

      It’s very good and was a fun experience. There are a few tea places in southern CA but I haven’t found any that really strike my fancy yet.

      It was good but it was no Molly Moon’s (from Seattle), let’s be honest. Haha. Pumpkin is certainly yummy. Sadly, their flavor had pumpkin seeds in it for a nice added crunch but I couldn’t remember if I was allergic or not so I just went with something safe :)
