In February I attended an amazing blogger trip in San Francisco. It was a great group of bloggers and a great trip filled with AMAZING food. We ate a lot, as food bloggers would, and had such a fun time exploring the city. This Coconut Curry Ceviche is from a meal we had at E&O Kitchen and Bar. It was SO good that I knew I had to share it with you!

Where We Stayed:

We stayed at Hilton San Francisco Union Square. The location, the room, and the hospitality in the hotel is beyond fantastic. They go above and beyond, and for a large hotel, they do a fabulous job of making it feel small for the guests. Cityscape (on the 46th floor) had the absolute best views of the city, and had amazing cocktails and appetizers! 

What We Did:

Avital Walking Food Tour of Mission District: amazing foodie tour with fabulous stops in the Mission district.

Tour of Heath Ceramics: a tour of their San Fran studio!

Macaron workshop at Chantal Guillon: This was incredible. An amazing, fun experience and they even made custom macrons with our logos on them!

Edible Excursions Japantown Food Walking Tour: A great tour of Japan town with a ton of fabulous stops for any foodie!

Tour of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and Ferry Building Marketplace: we walked around and met many of the vendors here. It is truly an amazing farmer’s market if you ever get the chance to go!

Where We Ate:

Dinner at E&O Kitchen & Bar

Dinner at Charlie Palmer’s Burritt Room + Tavern

Dinner at Urban Tavern

It was an amazing trip filled with fabulous food, good friends, and great things to do in the city!


Now… this recipe! A must-make!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound local white fish (see notes)

  • 1 mango, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped

  2. Once the fish has turned opaque, strain off all excess liquid and place into a clean bowl.

  4. Add enough coconut milk to the mix to lightly coat all of the ingredients.

  6. Toss to combine. Assemble and serve.

San Fran, Napa, and Yosemite

Are you caught up on my wedding recaps?

Wedding Recap: part 2


If so, then you are ready to follow our journey from San Francisco to Napa, and then to Yosemite!

Here’s how we did it: We flew into San Francisco, rented a car, and spent the night and the following day exploring the city. We woke up the following day and left to Napa (about an hour and a half drive), where we spent a few days relaxing, and then were off to Yosemite (about a 3 hour drive) for a few days! After Yosemite we drove back to San Francisco (about a 3 hour drive), got a bite to eat, then were off on a red eye home! We loved how our plan played out, and didn’t find it was too much driving or anything like that!

SAN FRANCISCO:

We opted for a boutique hotel right in the center of Union Square, the Serrano hotel. We had a beautiful room and it was a great location to explore the city!

Our favorite lunch in San Fran had to be MKT in the Four Seasons Hotel. The service, the cocktails, and the food were outstanding!

Other eats & drinks in San Francisco:

We went to Red Room for a cocktail.

We grabbed a Sushirrito (or 3) for a snack – straight from the airport no less.

We dined at Kusakabe for an Omakase sushi meal.

San Francisco Eats & Drinks

On our way to Napa, we stopped at to see and explore the Muir Woods. It was quite touristy, but a great walk and amazing to see the scale of those trees! Plus, it was on the way!

NAPA:

We arrived in St. Helena and headed to our hotel, Wine Country Inn. We were brought to our private cottage with the most spectacular view. Everything about Wine Country Inn was so fabulous. It was quiet and quaint, with a happy hour wine tastings and homemade hors d’oeuvres each night. The staff was so friendly, helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend getting a private cottage there. The cottages are incredible! As a whole, WCI had this lovely luxury bed and breakfast feel and in a great location.

When we arrived, we were so thrilled to be out of the city. Not that we didn’t love our time in San Fran, but the wedding weekend was exhausting and relaxation was in order! Our cottage was so gorgeous that we cancelled our winery tour for that afternoon and just relaxed at WCI!

^Our balcony at Wine Country Inn. Stunning.

Our first dinner we had an incredible meal on the patio at Auberge du Soleil. Auberge isn’t cheap, so do keep that in mind, but it’s truly fabulous. They also have a brunch if you’re looking to go but to make it more reasonable.

The next day we ventured to Del Dotto Vineyard which was so much fun. The wine tasting is in their wine cave and it was a blast. We purchased and shipped some special bottles home and have been loving them!

I think our favorite dinner in Napa was at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch. Everything, from the vibes to the appetizers, mains, and desserts were incredible! Farmstead is at the top of my list for Napa restaurants for sure. Plus, the prices are super reasonable!

Other Napa Eats:

Gott’s Roadside for a delicious bite after the Vineyard

An awesome gluten-Free Sandwich with Special Sauce (a must) from Giugni’s Deli 

Animal-style In-n-Out Burger on lettuce buns (on the way to Yosemite) – we thought this was a California must-try.

YOSEMITE

We arrived at Yosemite and checked into Half Dome Village, which is camping-style, without having to bring your own tent/equipment. “Glamping” if you will. The tents are already there, with heat and beds. There are communal showers and it is definitely camping, but not as rustic. It reminded us a lot of sleep away camp.

Wasn’t expecting: to have put my things, even toothpaste in a BEAR BOX.

Pleasant surprise: The bar at the camp ground was so much fun and had great Margaritas!

Make sure you: bring shower shoes!

You can’t: make your own campfires or cook your own food.

 

No filter. Not kidding!

We made it in time to see the sunset at Glacier Point looking out onto Half Dome. I literally have never seen anything so stunning. It looked like a picture!

The next day we hiked all day and ended our long day with Margaritas at the camp ground bar which surprisingly had great drinks– and a great bartender! 

For the majority of our time at Yosemite, we ate on our camp ground, but we did one nice dinner at the Majestic Hotel that was unbelievable! Note: you need a reservation ahead of time!

That meal was SO GOOD.

We ventured back to San Francisco, spent some time there, then off we were to go home!
