One of my sisters from Kappa Delta, Britney, wanted me to introduce her to authentic French restaurants in the Bay Area, and since I only know of 3 and they’re all in San Francisco, we decided to take a little trip!
I decided to take her to Café de la Presse since it’s right next to Chinatown ^^
Unfortunately the pictures came out a little dark since we were right next to a window, but here’s the yummy food we had =3
Started off with mimosas and bellinis (like a peach mimosa)
I ordered a quiche lorraine and Britney had a croque madame =3 (and mystery friend hidden in the corner had pan bagna)
We then went on a nice stroll around Chinatown ^^
The entrance to San Francisco’s Chinatown is right next to Café de la Presse!
It was decorated with pretty red lanterns =D I think they were probably left over from a festival — don’t know what Chinese festival there was in the last month though….
Found some great street art too!
Cool huh? ^^
We were pretty full from lunch but had to stop for a free tea tasting. Make sure you stop at one of their 3 locations in SF Chinatown. The tea is great, the people are very knowledgeable and helpful, and they give you tons of extra stuff ^^ I ordered black tea and the guy gave me some chrysanthemum tea to mix in with it for free =D
Last but not least, we did “a little” shopping O=]
That’s it for now folks!
Stay tuned for Part 2: Berkeley (yeah, it was a hell of a day =] )
