A Thursday in San Francisco means the new Thursday Farmers' Market at the Ferry Building, 10-2. If you can, you should go earlier before the lunch crowd takes over. A few produce stands like Lucero & Dirty Girl, with lots of tomatoes and peaches right now. Please pardon the amateurish-iPhone pics.
Namu's Korean BBQ Beef Tacos: toasted seaweed, rice, Korean beef, kimchi, and some kind of addictive special sauce. $2.25/1, $4/2. They are amazing, could have been a little warmer though.
Pizza Politana's Margherita Pizza, $8: Very thin, crispy crust with loads of flavor. Made to order in a portable wood-burning oven!
The beef sandwiches from Roli Roti, $6 looked good. Will have to try next week. Roasted potatoes are also available there, but no chicken, porchetta, or lamb. Mexican place called Tacolicious, and some intense sorbets from Scream Sorbet.
And of course, the "only in San Francisco" picture of the day belongs to the guy who parks his pets in Union Square. Yes, it's a cat with a white rat sitting on top of a dog. They all seem to get along!
