This weekend I played tourist in my own backyard and went on a walking food tour in San Francisco. I did some research and found Foodie Adventures to be highly rated. I took the Mission District tour and loved it! I will be signing up for the North Beach-Chinatown one next. Here are some highlights:
Above left: I am sitting down to try some cow brain (!) and a beef taco compliments of La Gallinita Meat Market. Above right: About to taste sweet corn tamales and a special mexican hot chocolate from La Espiga de Oro (my favorite items were from here).
Above left: A tortilla made with cactus and stuffed with refried beans, topped with cheese and guacamole made at La Palma Mexicatessen. Above right: A close up of the deep fried cow brain and beef taco previously mentioned.
The above torta is great for anyone who loves spice! Not pictured above is the juice we were treated to here – it was a mixture of 30 different fruits and vegetables! Compliments of Tortas la picudas.
This was another dish we tried at La Espiga de Oro.
In all, we visited and ate at 7 different locations. Not mentioned or pictured above is Kings Bakery – a must stop for all who visit San Francisco, whether taking a food tour or not (order the coconut bun)!
