Victory Hall & Parlor (Eat/Drink)

VictoryHallParlorVictoryHallParlorRating: Solid Good
Where: SOMA, San Francisco, CA (330 Ritch Street cross Townsend Street)

Review: The wait for having a table to eat Little Skillet in an alley is over. Same owner Deanna Sison Foster also has Farmer Brown (live music on Sundays and weekend brunch are buffet style on Saturdays and Sundays.)

Boulettes Larder (Eat/Drink)

Rating: Solid good

Where: Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA (Embarcadero)

Review: It’s been a while as they renovated and opened up the Bouli Bar and on Sunday (August 11), they opened the once and only brunch, a reprise of those who had been regulars and have been following their every move.

Their food, to many, might be more than just Californian. It serves exquisite and sometimes acquired taste such as chilled soup. But in recent times they have gone slightly more mainstream because after all, it’s Ferry Building that is filled with tourists.

Rating: Solid Good
Where: Mission, San Francisco, CA (233 14th Street between South Van Ness Ave and Mission Street)

Review: Nice little cafe with setting that may be fitted a bit more on Valencia trendy hood than the autobody shops centric hood.

Rating: Passable
Where: Civic Center, San Francisco, CA (154 McAllister Street, between Hyde Street and Leavenworth Street)

Review: It’s a cute little eatery standing in an otherwise somewhat quiet hood. The space looks crisp, relaxing, chilling and a great place to grab a bite.

However, the Porchetta sandwich (more…)

The Willows (Eat/Drink)

TheWillowsRating: Decent
Where: SOMA, San Francisco, CA (1582 Folsom St, corner of 12th Streetand Folsom Street)

Review: From the same owners of The Sycamore, signature food and drinks are served at the Willows.

The great part is it’s open for lunch.

Pork belly donuts with maple Makers Mark glaze were definitely have enough Makers Mark in the bottom of the bowl and the syrup made it a good kick.

The deviled eggs with Sriracha and smoked chili powder were refreshing.

Plenty of burgers and sliders. Beer battered fish, lamb and fried chicken were all pretty good. The fries were crisp.

It’s a full bar service if you so incline to grab a drink. This would be a good place for after work drinks, evening bites and hangout.

20th Century Cafe (Eat/Drink)

20thCenturyCafe20thCenturyCafeRating: Decent
Where: Hayes Valley, San Francisco, CA (198 Gough Street, between Oak Street and Lily Street)

Review: Cute corner cafe for a light brunch or better yet, afternoon coffee / tea break to enjoy a conversation.

Food here, for now is mostly lighter style, not a lot of hot food and it gears towards chilled or room temperature eats, it give s a refreshing sense and especially with the lighter color-themed setting.

Krasinski Tortchen (layered Russian honey cake) was decent and honey-centric. It was not heavy nor was it too sugary. A good taste.

Cucumber yogurt soup was a bit light and almost watery. The taste was good though and just needed to be thicker.

The poppyseed lox was with a denser style bagel, fresh and delicious. The salmon was at good quality.

The drip coffee (Ethopian blend) was a bit too (more…)

Hornblower Cruise (Eat/Drink Attraction/Travel)

HornblowerCruiseRating: Decent good
Where: Pier 3, San Francisco, CA (about 5 to 10 minutes walk from Ferry Building)

Review: One way to enjoy San Francisco, for both tourists and locals, is to take the cruise. The cruise sails along the shore to showcase Coit Tower, all the way to Crissy Field, Golden Gate, around to the Bay Beach. It gives a different perspective when visiting the city from the water. The boat was steady and on a nice sunny day, the deck is a great place to take some photographs.

They have both brunch and (more…)
