A few weeks ago, I heard that my mom and my brother were going on a road trip to San Francisco. Normally, I wouldn't care to go. I hated the traffic. But since the only “road trips” I've had in months had been going to the grocery store or picking-up take-out food, I wanted to go. They didn't have to ask me, I insisted on tagging along.
As I looked for my sweatshirt which I have not worn since last winter (just in case it was colder), I salivated thinking of all the dim sum I was going to get.
The traffic wasn't as bad as I remembered, and we found parking on the street where we wanted to be. I “invested” all my coins into the parking meter for a half-hour parking. (It took a lot of quarters, dimes, and nickels) and off we went.
Our first stop was the old “roast duck” place, and I bought a roast duck, roast pork, and fried rice. Then we went to Noriega St. and I bought all the shrimp dumplings, fried taro and siu mai they had, plus a few other things. I got enough to last for many days.
A ton of food wasn't the only thing I brought back home.
I also saw this cute and creative container planting idea in somebody's concrete front yard.
What a fun way to create some greenery in the concrete jungle.
I would say it was a very fun road trip and the dim sum was definitely worth the trip.
