Explore an Explosive and Excellent Gastronomic Journey
With a little bit of everything for everyone in San Francisco, I explored the gorgeous Muir Woods with its breathtaking redwood groves which are named as of the some of the tallest trees in the world. Determined not to miss the famed Sonoma Valley and its wine country, I stopped off at quite a few drinking enclaves which displayed a well-curated collection of wines from the abode of Bacchus. Between an inspiring walk over the Golden Gate Bridge with its 1.7 mile length, riding on cable cars and visiting the Alcatraz (The Rock), I made innumerable stopovers to quench the thirst buds and take the palate on a non-stop quest to stir up a gastronomic adventure.
I had certainly arrived at a unique destination where the palate could go on a gastronomic journey. I wasted no time on setting out on an explosive thrill at dining San Francisco which is known as ‘one of America’s best restaurant cities’. You name it, they have it, I was told as San Francisco opened the doors to authentic tastes, flavors and the freshest local ingredients to offer immense creative genius and awesome international flavors. Offering a veritable smorgasbord of cuisines, San Francisco displayed an attraction of Japanese, Chinese, Russian, French, Indian, Mexican, Spanish, Malaysian, Greek, Moroccan, Italian dishes and oh so many delightful delicacies with an array of fusion and creative styles.
I tried out delicious cruffins, strawberry manju, apple fritters and salted caramel ice cream which I downed to satisfy my sweet tooth as my eye ranged over the Swedish Pancakes and incredible goodies. Who can beat the tastes and smells of San Francisco with the tantalizing flavors of pizza focaccia, Dutch Crunch bread, cioppino, Caldo Verde and prime ribs? My palate went on a tasteful sojourn with Clam Chowder Bread Bowl, Oysters, Hangtown Fry and the delicious Carnitas Burrito. I just loved the Roast Chicken with Bread Salad, the Explosive Chicken, burgers and sandwiches which were magically present everywhere especially when the taste buds went on a craving binge. And what about the delicious melt-in-the-mouth finger sandwiches and scones that were thankfully articulated just in time for a great snack?
I traveled on a repertoire of sights and sounds as San Francisco invited the intrepid tourist to experience the Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 with its sea lions, Madam Tussad’s, Ripley Believe It Or Not and great night life. I made it a point to shop at Union Square and the wonderful designer boutiques with countless non-stop shopping centers. What a great and immense premier tourist attraction place San Francisco provides with concerts, museums, art galleries and architecture. I was thoroughly and completely entertained especially with everything that San Francisco offered and made a mental note to visit this destination with its myriad and mesmerizing carousel of all things brilliant and beautiful.
