I made my way back to Sqirl over Thanksgiving break. In the two years (minus one day) since I wrote about it, Sqirl has gotten incredibly popular and received quite a bit of critical acclaim. (Just take a look at their website.) This makes sense; their food is as good as I remember.
This time I tried the Seared Polenta with spring vegetables cooked in whey, a fried egg, and a side of greens. I loved it. The vegetables had a lot of flavor, the polenta was cooked perfected, and I liked making that perfect bite with a little bit of everything on top. I also had the Famed Ricotta Toast with strawberry jam and a latte, both of which I'd highly recommend. My friends enjoyed their cleverly named Green Eggs & Jam Tartine and ricotta toast with three types of jam as well.
If you've been to Sqirl recently, what do you recommend trying? (Everything? I thought so!)
Last weekend, after photographing amazing street style at West Coast Craft, I stopped by Caffè Greco for coffee and a bite to eat. Located in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood, Caffè Greco serves delicious Italian coffee drinks, sandwiches, and desserts.
In an effort to make my North Beach experience as authentic as possible, I ordered a Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato Panini with a cappuccino. Both were quite good.
