Eloise’s first time to San Francisco

D2Jco6rUwAAWd3w

This past weekend we went to San Francisco and the weather was absolutely perfect: sunny & warm. We ate at Souvla, and if¬† you haven’t been there before, you have to go! I like to go to the Alamo Square location, it has a nice outdoor patio! We both got pork salads, greek fries to share, and frozen greek yogurt with baklava crumbles. SO GOOD. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I wish they had locations throughout California (it’s only in SF)!

We then decided to walk to Alamo Square and enjoy the views. I just love San Francisco. It’s our favorite city for sure, and I’m just glad we got to show Ellie! I know she won’t remember, but that’s not the point! I’m just grateful that we get to make memories as a family.

Dex and I are trying to venture out of the house a lot more, since Eloise is such a good girl! Now that she’s almost 4 months old, we’ve pretty much got the hang of Ellie and her cues. We’re really thankful she’s such a good baby! ūüôā *proud parents*

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week & happy first day of Spring! Yay!

EATING IN THE CITY.

One of my favorite things to do is trying new places to eat. I’m huge on aesthetics/decor when it comes to restaurants or cafes. How do I find the cute gems if it’s not a recommendation from a friend? I use Yelp! No, seriously. Yelp never really disappoints- and I use it ALL THE TIME. Who doesn’t use Yelp nowadays?

This past week I hit up 3 adorable places, one being a cafe. I thought I’d share, just in case anyone wanted to try these places out. They are all in San Francisco.

  • PALM HOUSE. (cow hollow)

What did I order?¬†Huevos Rancheros. Worth it?¬†Beyond worth it, so freakin’ good. Not pictured, but try the Caribbean Iced Coffee- oh my.

  • SOUVLA. (NOPA)

What did I order? Pork salad, Greek fries & a glass of Ros√©. Worth it?¬†Absolutely! This huge bowl of salad filled me up, and they were not stingy with the pork. SO DELICIOUS. It had fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, kale, pickled red onions, and feta cheese. I’m totally going back- and the great thing is they have multiple locations in the city!

  • THE MILL. (NOPA/alamo square)

What did I order?¬†Latte & cinnamon toast! Is it worth it?¬†Yes, if you love a fancy latte & a place to come relax/ hang out with a friend/ do some schoolwork. They make all their loaves fresh (yum) and even have pizza night from 6-9pm every evening (which I haven’t had… yet).

Do you have any recommendations for me- not just in San Francisco, but in the Bay Area? I would also love some spots in Los Angeles (since I visit frequently)! Stay tuned for more Eating in the City posts.

tony’s pizza napoletana: the best pizza!

Hello everyone,

I hope you all are doing well. I went on a date with my boyfriend on Sunday, to San Francisco’s north beach neighborhood, for some dinner. Dex took me to this cute restaurant called Tony’s Pizza Napoletana. They are very well known for their pizza and meatballs! The wait was around 30 minutes but before we knew it, we got a table outside. IMG_7040

I wanted to start with the “little Italy” salad, and I have to say it was SO SO GOOD. Also, big enough to share with Dex. Mmmm mmm.

Of course I ordered some sparkling rose! My favorite!

Next we shared a meatball. The meatballs are HUGE, we both had a few bites, but had to take the rest home since we wanted to save room for our pizza! I’m telling you, if you ever come here… GET THE MEATBALL with the cream mushroom sauce on top, not on the side. There are NO words to describe this meatball, it was so rich in flavor, tender and juicy. It was a true foodie moment.

Lastly, is the¬†margherita pizza. There are no words for this deliciousness. I told my boyfriend, it was the best pizza I have ever tasted- and he agreed! SO GOOD. Better than pizza I’ve had in New York! I mean, it isn’t award winning pizza for nothing.

This is a new favorite spot of ours! My parents are coming up from Southern California to visit this weekend, and we are definitely taking them here. I think they are going to enjoy it so much. It makes me happy showing my family new places that Dexter and I discover and love.

If you are ever visiting SF, check this spot out! You won’t regret it. If you enjoyed this foodie review, and want more, let me know.

Talk to you later, xo
