Day 1: Castro District
As a San Francisco native, I’m proud to call this multicultural city my home. Much has changed in the past few years, especially the food scene. If you plan to visit San Francisco, the vibrant Castro District is not one to miss out on. With Twin Peaks and Dolores Park nearby, this makes Castro a popular hangout destination for the locals!
Brunch at Kitchen Story
San Franciscans really love their weekend brunch. Kitchen Story is a popular brunch restaurant located on the corner of 16th Street and Sanchez Street. They’ve got a wholesome menu with a variety of brunch and cocktail selections. I kept hearing good things about their award winning Millionaire’s Bacon, so I decided to try their Millionaire’s Bacon Eggs Benedict. Slow-cooked with brown sugar and spices, Millionaire’s Bacon is a thicker and sweet version of regular bacon. The dish is served with Ciabatta toast and rainbow potatoes. These potatoes consist of Chilean Purple, Yukon Gold, Gemstone Red, Russet, and Sweet Yam. Their bottomless mimosas are perfect if you’re going with a group of friends!

Indulge in Desserts at U:Dessert Story
Literally right next to Kitchen Story is U: Dessert Story. Their aesthetic desserts are Korean, Japanese, and Thai influenced. They have coffee, tea, cakes, toast, shaved ice, and other desserts. I tried their Strawberry Cheesecake Yogurt Kakigori, Matcha Float, Chocolate Matcha Lava Cake, and Thai Tea Crepe Cake. The one that stood out to me most was the Strawberry Cheesecake Yogurt Kakigori because there are tiny cheesecake bits on the very bottom of the shaved ice. If you’re a chocolate lover, you’ll love the Chocolate Matcha Lava Cake!

Devour Deep Dish Pizza at Patxi’s
Have you ever wanted to capture your own cheese-pull shot? I got my first cheese-pull shot with Patxi’s Chicago deep dish pizza. I ordered half BBQ Chicken and half Special. The pizza was so dense and juicy, that you’ll be stuffed with just one or two slices. It’s nice that they also have vegan deep dish pizza. Expect to wait around 30-40 minutes for your pizza if you decide to order a deep dish because it takes a while to cook.
