Chow Food Bar – San Francisco

Hop on the F cable car! We are going for breakfast.

To Chow at Church. A place to eat delicious, fresh, healthy food coming from the local farmers and producers.

You will thank me later!

Very polite and nice people greet you, immediately seated where you want.

Ordered coffee. Menu is eggs, pancakes, oatmeal, coffee, tea, fresh juices… hard to choose. But we had our eyes on the chicken apple sausage as side, a bacon scrambled eggs with mushrooms, spinach and a vegetable scramble with goat cheese, some OJ, we are good to go. Nice fresh filter coffee.

Our food arrived just as we started our second cup of coffee. Looking delicious, eggs taste great, yes the real egg taste -not he phony supermarket eggs- cooked just as I like, not dry, a little runny. Rye bread is lightly toasted, thin, you taste the grains and love it. Some brown mustard with the apple sausages. Done!

A morning treat, a great way to start a day.

A full tummy before you hit to Castro.

A sunny San Francisco morning.

Yank Sing – San Francisco

A long ceremony. A big pot of jasmine tea. Smiling Chinese people surround you. No music. Not needed. A slight clanging sound in the air. Dim sum carts rolling up to your table. The Cantonese delicacy. The moment we were waiting for.

Just say tea and begin to choose from those many many different dim sum.

Honey glazed BBQ pork bun, steamed to perfection, moist and so good. Chicken and lotus root cake, served pan shallow fried, served with its sweet-sour sauce to dip it. One of their signature dishes Kurobuta pork filled Shanghai dumplings are made with ginger, a touch of garlic, scallion and with its own broth. So when you see the little dumplings, you will understand why they are special. You have to lift it up very gently with your chop sticks, avoiding to tear the silky dough, otherwise the broth inside will escape,  and then put it on your spoon, if you like drip some soy sauce on top, then in your mouth. It is like a taste bomb exploding with all the fragrances. A sip of jasmine tea.

They have this shrimp mousse deep fried, also if you fancy they have rolls like sea bass, tofu. My other favorite was the green beans glazed with a soy reduction and covered with sesames. And the Pork Sui Mye, what a combination, made with both shrimp and pork with ginger. To finish, the Peking roast duck, with the golden-red skin, moist and succulent! Another sip of jasmine.

Steamed, shallow fried, deep fried, on bamboo steamers, on stainless steel cups, or plates… Just you want to sit there with your loved ones, eat and share your generous table, your true moment with real food.
