Coraline( Collapse ) Fog City Diner
Over twenty years in San Francisco and I've never eaten there before, which is a shame because it was incredible. Noisy and we were a little close to the door on a cold night for my taste, but damn that was some amazing food. I had the hangar steak and it may be the best piece of meat (ahem) I've ever eaten.
I mean it was way more than we usually pay for in-city food, more like a vacation dinner, but worth every penny. OMG-the mashed potatoes.
Hubby had the pot-roast and was similarly effusive.
Deserts were ecstasy inducing as well. I had the bread pudding and hubby went for the Tortoise Sundae.
It was a pain in the ass getting there because we came out of the theater at about 6pm on the night of the Chinese New Year parade. Hubby's leg was hurting so we really needed a cab and there were none to be had and the crowd in the down-town area was night-marish. I told him we should abandon the whole idea and get on BART back to the Mission, but he was determined. We ended up walking a long way in the wrong direction, but did eventually get a cab back down to the restaurant.
Sunday AM, I went out for about five miles run/walk/run in the fog and when I got back we went to brunch at Andalu
which is less than a block from the apartment. We never go there for dinner because of the crowds, but it's a great brunch spot and not too much of a splurge.
Unfortunately the waiter was kind of a doofus. He looked like Jay from the Jay and Silent Bob movies, and gave me an itty-bitty teaspoon for a tea that was in a long, tall glass.
I had the veggie lovers omelet and the OMG!!! POLENTA FRIES! Hubby had the eggs-benedict with OMG!!! Cambiola cheese fondue. I'm so not kidding. If any of my Squeeeee Odyssey girls come to visit---that's where we're going for brunch.
Karaoke was a zoo. Big, crazy party going on, with lots of loud, drunk, crazy people in various states of dress and undress.
I pulled out two crowd-pleasers, "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You," and "Born To Run" before running for my life with Sebastian giving me a ride home, since the rain had started coming down.
