It was my first time visiting San Francisco. I went for a lil mini vacation, but definitely stuffed in A LOT of attractions but mostly a lot of FOOD! Follow along as I show you where to eat, what to do and where to stay in SF! We swapped into two hotels, one being Argonaut Hotel that was right on Fisherman's Dwarf and the other one being more into the city and "downtown" ish vibes and area. We ate ice cream, thai food, prime rib, seafood.. dessert. you literally name it! Read along for more.
Rooster And Rice
The first thing we did when we landed - picked up some hainanese chicken from Rooster and Rice. Although a simple dish, this place did one of my favorite renditions of it. There are two locations so you can definitely stop by on your next trip!
Blue Mermaid SF
Located inside the Argonaut Hotel, Blue Mermaid is a seafood driven and focused concept right on Fisherman's Wharf. We went for a leisurely lunch right downstairs from our room. :) We got ahi tuna tacos (because I can never NOT order those on the menu!) Oysters, a seafood feast of cioppino with shrimp, mussels, crab + the works.
BBQ PLEASE! As if we weren't eating enough, we added on a BBQ place + OMG. I feel in love with this burger. It had a sesame and scallion bun and gruyere cheese on a grassfed patty. Go here + get that!
The Argonaut Hotel
Step inside the The Argonaut Hotel! Oh my gosh, this hotel suite was something that I've just dreamed about. Take a look at this TUB! After walking, eating and being on the town all day, there was nothing I wanted to do more than to jump in the jacuzzi/tub and soak up. Not to mention, they had bath salts right on the side of the bathtub to place in. I am now so inspired to make sure I have this in my future house! hah!
I loved everything about this hotel, it was SO close to the water and was right on Fisherman's Wharf.
China Live SF
The Vibe at China Live SF was unlike anything I've seen in LA. It was an underground Chinese restaurant with all different booths of chefs making dim sum, to slicing the pecking duck. You can also shop a lot of the products you eat during dinner at their store next door, AH MAZING. Food, cocktails, vibe, 100. come to LA asap!
The Mill SF
It was almost time for us to say goodbye to SF, and we were honestly slowing down from how much food we had been eating. :o lol! So we decided to chill out at The Mill SF. We got coffee, iced hot chocolate and 2 toasts, both amazing. You can see them making their bread fresh when you're walking in the back. Not to mention cute AF vibes in here!
How could we not visit the Painted Ladies?! :)
