Pulled pork sandwich from Southpaw BBQ

In Denver my favorite BBQ joint was Sam Taylor’s in the Glendale neighborhood where I lived. A few years later, in 2012 when I was living in Phoenix, I read an announcement that after 15 years, Sam Taylor’s was closing. Devastation. Denial. Mourning.

Goods from the Famers Market

Last week I got a chance to check out Alemany Farmers Market in Bernal Heights, a neighborhood in San Francisco. All I can say is prepare yourself for craziness and more produce than you’ve ever seen in one place.

loved these mini purple eggplants

I was like a kid in a candy store except this kid goes crazy over potatoes, kale and early girl tomatoes! Open every Saturday, this farmers market was founded in 1943 and boasts a ton of awesome spots to eat and more than enough vendors to make sure you find what you’re looking for. Check them out on Facebook!

mixed yukon gold, red + purple potatoes ready for the grill

These mixed potatoes were perfect for the grill. Chop up a mix of yukon gold, red and purple and throw ’em in a bowl with some olive oil, sea salt, pepper, garlic, basil, red pepper flakes and throw them in a tin foil pocket for the grill (I also top the potatoes with a couple pads of butter on top before I seal the tin foil up).

Beer List at City Beer Store in San Francisco

So… I’ve been missing. For about a month now? Sorry about that. As of this morning (around 4 AM), I am now temporarily living in an extended stay hotel in East Bay, CA. Can you imagine my kitchen-shock? My beautiful (and quite large) kitchen will be missed very much but I’m going to take this time in the City (I’ve been told not to call it the Bay Area – I apologize, I’m new to this!) to explore all of the amazing food options here. Stay tuned for more on that. I did cook tonight but I’m afraid nothing terribly blog-worthy (the boyfriend says it was the best hotel chicken he’s ever had). Without an oven and only 2 burners it’s a bit challenging to be trying out new things at this point.

I’ll be relying heavily on referrals, research, Foursquare, etc. to find all the right spots including beer joints. The one we checked out today was a recommendation from a friend back in Phoenix (thanks Courtney!) called City Beer Store in San Francisco. I checked in on Untappd with an amazing sour by Russian River Brewing Company. This was an awesome little space with a tasting room, plenty of options on tap and several bottle options to take home as well (I picked up the Ballast Point Double IPA for later). City Beer Store checkin on UntappdI’ll try to post when I can but make sure and follow me on Twitter, Facebook + most importantly Instagram + Foursquare + Untappd to keep up with the new adventures!
