I'm continuing my countdown of the things I am looking forward to most when I get back to San Francisco on Thursday.
At the top of my to do list when I arrive is to check out the food! at some of my favorite restaurants.
The Mission neighborhood in San Francisco has the best Mexican food. There's typically at least one restaurant or burrito place per block along Valencia and Mission streets. Papalote on Valencia and 24th is by far my favorite, and it will likely be my first stop on Thursday.
Being landlocked in the Midwest, you know every time you order fish it has been frozen for some time. Plus sushi restaurants are few and far between around these parts. I love knowing that any seafood I order at a restaurant in the Bay Area is most likely fresh, and I plan on checking out various sushi places when I arrive in San Francisco.
Falafels. Everyone asks me to describe falafels when I say that I'm craving a falafel wrap. It's Middle Eastern in origin according to Wikipedia. The falafel wrap is fried balls of something indescribable and potatoes and cucumber sauce and hummus and it's yummy. I really don't want to know the specific ingredients. Truly Mediterranean is my favorite place to stop but there are a couple other good falafel places in San Francisco.
