Unexpected Trip to SF

Recommended Posts

Another SF travel thread, sorry. Family emergency in SF, very limited funds, 4 day trip. Cheap eats, bars, etc. More specifically Messican and Filipino food.

I googled my favorite burrito spot only to learn they have closed.

 

RIP Taqueria El Castillito

 

I haven't been back to the city since I left almost a decade ago... so I assume my advice is out of date.

damn, good looks Karl, saw this after the trip. I was so fucking medicated (the edibles truly fucked me up) through out the trip that it was a blur. My cousin copped from Apothecarium, that shit was fancy at least from the oustisde. I stayed by the airport so had in n' out a lot. Smitten ice cream was bomb. Bob's donuts was slammin' and the shop was pretty non-hipster which was good. What really stood out was Philz coffee, I need that shit in the east coast. We got blue bottle in nyc and have to say Philz blows it away.

It's funny how you mentioned Bob's being non-hipster and that being a good thing. And you then you post about wanting to go to a fucking hipster clothing store maas and stacks. That fucking store is whack!
