one year bliss

Last weekend we celebrated our one year wedding anniversary in San Francisco. Saturday was spent shopping till we dropped and finding a tiny, yet amazing, authentic Japanese eatery. Everything about it was fantastic, and I must admit, made us miss Japan like crazy. Sunday, my camera was beckoning to come out and play, so we headed to the Mission district. Yet, after driving around a bit, deemed it an unsafe playground and made our way towards Chinatown. We've roamed the streets numerous times, but always find something new to marvel at. Below are a few of my favorites.

Whenever we go to SF, we have a habit of sticking to our favorite spots. A few of our favorite spots are listed below the slide show. We highly recommend them, as they've never let us down [unless they were closed, ha] and are moderately priced. Below are my other fav shots from the trip to Chinatown, enjoy!

Favorite restaurant: Q Restaurant
-our picks: fried calamari w/ chili-lime aioli, spinach salad [with delish toppings], mac & cheese with tots [famous dish], angus burger with garlic fries and a grilled banana for dessert. Can't forget about their mega extensive wine list!

Favorite cupcake bakery: That Takes The Cake
-our picks: Prom Queen [the BEST strawberry cupcake made with real berries] and the Samoa [just like the girl scout cookie]. Actually, every cupcake here is uh-mazing.

Favorite watering hole: The Cantina
-our picks: looking for a spicy kick in the face? try the Laughing Buddha made with chilies. For a citrus taste, try the Misdemeanor.

one year down, a wonderful lifetime to go
