With every trip up to the bay, there’s always some food to write home about. The first tasty morsel was what i’m dubbing the “Adult McRib.” The Porchetta Sandwich from Roli Roti which is a pork loin wrapped with pork belly and crispy pork skin too. The first bite with all the different pork, grilled onions, and arugula make for a delicious bite.
To accompany our first lunch in the city we also ordered a bowl of ramen from Hapa Ramen who was station right next to Roli Roti outside the Ferry Building. A very delicious bowl of pork ramen soup to go along with our sandwich.
Friday morning we wanted pancakes and went to Mama’s in Northbeach. We got there around 10am and there was a line out the door and down the street. Thankfully we were on vacation so we didn’t mind the eventual 45 minute wait outside. We went all out for the French Toast sampler, dollar pancakes, cornbeef hash and lots of eggs.
Saturday afternoon before heading home we drove across the water into Oakland for a tasty fried chicken sandwich from Bakesale Betty’s. The sandwich was large and in charge with a juicy piece of fried chicken and a mound of slaw one top.
There is one more meal that i need to talk about that Jesse and i had at One Market which we had the pork tasting menu, but so much was going on (alcohol) that the meal happened in a flash and all came crashing down with a crunchy peanut butter crust hidden below the vanilla ice cream with a piece of bacon.
