Local Shoutout: Tapas and Scoops

Honestly, I’ve come to the realization that I don’t explore the Mission district of San Francisco enough. Such delicious yummies to be discovered there!

My fellow foodie friend and I decided to try a tapas bar we’d never been to: Picaro. This spanish-themed rustic gem is right in the heart of the Mission, near 16th and Valencia. Of course, a large pitcher of their highly acclaimed sangria was a must!

We decided to pair it with some garlic chicken (which ended up being more red sauce than garlic), grilled artichoke hearts, snapper strips with garlic mayo. Side note: bones galore, in both the fish and the chicken. Eat slowly and carefully.

Struck by the bright idea that sweets were needed badly after our tapas, it was time for a trip to the legendary Bi-Rite Creamery

I decided to try their seasonal Honey Lavender flavor. Two words: MIND BLOWN. It got even crazier when I decided to make it the base of my sundae. BEST CHOICE EVER. Splash of orange infused olive oil with a sprinkle of sea salt, topped with hot fudge. Quirky yet amazing.

My foodie partner in crime decked hers with oodles of toffee on top of her cinnamon snickerdoodle ice cream and never looked back.

DAREDEVILS OF DELICIOUSNESS.

Another night in the San Francisco complete due to yummy food feats. Both locations serve up locally sourced ingredients and amazing options, worth a trip next time you’re willing to take a walk from BART.
