My sister currently lives in Philadelphia. I never got a chance to visit her there during this past year while she’s been living there, but a couple of years ago when I did visit Philadelphia, I got a chance to eat some delicious cheesesteaks. My other sister also got a chance to eat some cheesesteaks during her trip to Philadelphia a couple of years ago, too. Little did I know it, there’s a delicious cheesesteak place two blocks away from where I currently live in Lower Haight. Metro Caffe has both burgers and cheesesteaks, including a bunch of different varieties to their cheesesteaks. I tried the Hogie version because it came with mayo, tomato, and lettuce along with the grilled onions and sweet and hot peppers. The fries were average, but the cheesesteak itself was just delicious! Yum!

It’s a bit strange that since I’m Asian you’d think I would eat more Chinese food. I mean, I do know how to make a fair amount of different foods, and especially living in San Francisco you’d think I’d eat more Chinese food simply because I have access to it all the time. In fact, eating Chinese food is quite the rare event for me. Recently, I finally did get a chance to try Wonderland, which is only about 2 blocks from where I live. I had heard that this place is pretty good especially since they have many tofu and vegetarian options (including meatless chicken). I will say, the food here was quite good and considering it’s so close, if I were someone who ordered Chinese food more, I would definitely have this place on my short list of favorites!

Palmyra is located just a few corners away from where I now live and since I’ve lived in this general neighbor for quite a while now, I’ve been trying to get to this place, but never had the opportunity. I generally like Middle Eastern food and found that Palmyra was no different. I just love all the different options, and thought that their Falafel were shaped so uniquely, almost like donuts! Plus, who doesn’t love a good hummus?!?
