We did it! Bay to Breakers is the oldest consecutively run foot race in the world…and we did it! All 7.5 miles of it. There were many costumes…and a lot of nudity…but we made it.
So I’ll admit that finding food out to eat is pretty tough on a limited diet – Mexican and Vietnamese seem to be safe choices if you avoid and sauces with sugar! We found this adorable little Pho place and decided to give it a go last week. They used thicker noodles than I’ve had in the past which was a new experience, and overall it was really delicious.

I’m obsessed with Mexican food. Tacos, burritos, enchiladas…they speak to my heart. If you find yourself in the Mission District of San Francisco, all you have to do it walk a few blocks and you’ll find a place. A place where english is secondary on the menu. A place where old mexican ladies are in the back arguing and stirring large pots that smell amazing. A place where Mecican Coke is a given.
Ramen in San Francisco is no joke. When I hear ramen I used to think the stovetop packets you can get two for a dollar, and usually need during college when you’re, well, broke. But not here! Traditional ramen broth is slow cooked for 18-24 hours, giving it an intense and bold flavor. There’s are typically three types of broth: salt (basic broth), soy sauce, and miso. And then each of these can be gotten spicy. Mixed with the traditional ramen noodles, bbq pork, green onion, mushrooms, and whatever other toppings you go with, it’s in a word: amazing. My favorite combination is spicy miso broth with additional chicken dumplings and kimchi. It’s too good…I want to eat it all the time. So if you’re here, do yourself a favor and track down a bowl.

2015 is going to be the year of adventure. Said another way, 2015 is going to be the year of planning adventure. Because lets be honest, if I don’t plan it, it probably won’t happen. As much as I’d love to be the spontaneous type who on a moments notice can whisk away into a grand adventure, I’m more of a “lets spontaneously not leave the house and binge watch Revenge” type of girl. Side note to anyone watching Revenge…WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS SEASON?!
