Travel Diary - Saturday August 1, 2015

Date: Saturday August 1, 2015
Theme/Title: Focus on Food
Overview: Brunch at Foreign Cinema, Were running late for a free city walk at Palace of Fine Arts (which was mainly ended up being focused on EXPO 1915) so we took a Lyft and got a very helpful driver. Wandered over to The Tonga Room in the basement of the San Francisco Fairmont. Then headed to Hawker Fare for dinner, an Asian inspired place that Greg had found. Jason and I went back to the hotel and the others went out for drinks.
Woke-up: 9:30am
Transportation/Distance: A few kilometers walking and a few on buses.
Meals: Amazing egg scramble at Foreign Cinema, a 'hipster' place suggested by Matt. Fun fruity drinks at Tonga Room with some shared snacks. Jason and I split a beef and broccoli dish at Hawker Fare.
Highlight of the Day: Brunch!
Lesson Learnt: The Fresh Rice Paper Spring Rolls at The Tonga Room are not good value for the price, but the Mahe'e is (a big pile of crispy calamari).
Quote of the Day: "Where are we going?" asked by F many many times as he tried to comprehend why we were planning our day around eating at various notable places.
Night's Accommodation: 'The fun room' (with the king bed) shared with Jason
