San Francisco, CA Guide
Accommodations: I stayed at a friend’s apartment in Hayes Valley and don’t have recommendations, sorry!
Spots I went & loved:
Souvla – I highly recommend going here for lunch or dinner. Incredible rotisserie lamb, pork, or chicken that can go in a gyro or on a salad. They also have insane greek yogurt soft serve. Go!
RT Rottiserie - a great fast/casual option with good rotisserie chicken and vegetable sides
Salt & Straw – an SF staple
Jane on Filmore – I could’ve eaten every meal here, the menu was ridiculous. Loved it all, highly recommend!
Little Gem – a dairy, gluten, and sugar free health-focused restaurant. Wasn’t the best food in SF but is a good lunch option
The Mill – an SF staple with great bread and a menu of toppings (almond butter, avocado, jelly, etc). I went for dinner and had their pizza, which they start serving at 6:00PM – very good!
Bi-Rite Cremery – my favorite ice cream I’ve had not in NYC. Got the roasted banana & malted vanilla; highly recommend
Plow – great farm to table restaurant with delicious breakfast. I loved the almond flour pancakes. Can have long lines so go early
