Happy December!

The Holidays in SF

I moved to San Francisco (Nob Hill/Russian hill border) in August and am absolutely loving city life! The gym is a half mile away, there is a natural foods grocery store 4 blocks away, and several restaurants on every street. I get to walk everywhere (yes, especially to my car since we usually have to park a few blocks away!) and those hills are really a great way to get a quick workout done in the middle of the day.

Most days I am cooped up inside the apartment on my computer all day, so it's great to head out in the evenings to meet friends for happy hour or dinner, just a short walk or Muni ride away. Getting all bundled up to brave the crisp city air and seeing the Christmas lights in the Bay windows really makes it feel so festive!

Another great thing about the city is the food! You can find basically ANY kind of food you can imagine right around the corner. Saturday night Chris and I were feeling cold, hungry, and tired from a long walk downtown and window shopping. So we decided to get Indian food delivered from a place down the street called Darbar. Best decision ever! The chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Saag were SO good, and they arrived at our door exactly 18 minutes after I hung up the phone with them. Couldn't get any better than that!

Happy December!

  1. Hi Kat! I love SF too! I used to live there and now I am down in Smell-A! Boo! The food options are fantastic there (here too though).

    I'm really excited to go up to SF around New Years. I can't wait to visit my favorite eats! :)

    Have a great day!

  2. Hi!

    Let me know if you have any restaurant suggestions, I love to try new places :)

  3. Oh my gosh there are so many good ones! I haven't been up there in a while, but last time we had oysters at Hog Island at the Ferry Building. YUM! I love the Ferry Building, many temptations there...

    I lived in North Beach and I loved going to the coffee houses there. I lived close to Cafe Trieste, such a cute place to sit and play cards and people watch.

    I'll have to hit you up for some restaurant suggestions before I come up at the end of the month!!! :)

  4. Ooh, I love North Beach! It's exactly a mile away, so we love to walk there for dinner, and then up the steep hill back home afterward to work off the meal :)

    My favorite thing to do on Saturday mornings is to go to the Ferry Building Farmers Market and try all the yummy samples.

    Maybe we can grab a cup of coffee when you are visiting SF :)
