San Fran!

I recently spent a long weekend in San Francisco... and learned a couple of things:
1. Must carry around an abundant amount of layers.
2. Sales tax is whack
3. There is a technique to wheel curbing
4. Too much garlic might not be a good thing
5. San Fran has some delicious food!  Here are some of our favorites:

Sushi Time - Castro
The name might not sound appealing.  The exterior might seem shady, as it's tucked away downstairs with few signs.  But this tiny sushi joint is a must for all sushi lovers, especially if you're looking for fresh fish, super nice chefs, and an authentic feel.  Check out this picture of a butterfish roll, the large chucks of fish are just spilling out!

Dungeness crab at Fisherman's Warf
We went to Fishman's Warf in search of clam chowder in a bread bowl = success
Behind the gigantic Boudin Bakery, which I'm pretty sure makes the entire city smell like sourdough bread, we found a little strip of small restaurants and street carts.  Not to my surprise, clam chowder was only the beginning of the seafood available.  But definitely the most enticing thing was the huge dungeness crabs everywhere. We got a whole crab which was nicely cracked open so we could peel and eat with our hands.  The crab meat comes out in perfect chunks and it so fresh and tender, you don't even need the butter. 
I'll admit that next time I will not be going to Fisherman's Wharf.  I've heard it's a tourist trap and I got that sense while there.  I thought the food was great, very moderately priced, but I'm sure there are probably better places in SF to eat seafood.
