So I'm back from my trip to the Philippines. I had a great time with friends and family and also the FOOD. I think I had my fair share of Sisig, Liempo, Bagnets and Crispy Pata. Yup they are all Pork and I have no regrets. Now it's time to see what's new and what's in season here in SF.
It is about 9 in the morning, Saturday, February 12, 2011 and the sun is out. It's a perfect day in the market. First stop Blue bottle coffee. I always have to have one whenever I'm here. It's one of San Francisco's finest coffee. Then I went to check out Dirty Girl together with Chris Consetino who's also shopping during that time! :) Here's what I found. The market is full of oranges, blood oranges, pommelo, fennel, burssel sprouts, green garlic, leeks, carrots, radishes and more carrots.
Green garlic - I thought it's green onions too!
Green garlic with Cowgirl's fromage blanc
I had a great time sampling what's in season. The green garlic and the blood orange were great.I also saw Frog Hollow Farms selling their Blood orange cakes. I went to the food stalls and the usual suspects are still there. Namu, Roli Roti, 4505, Hapa Ramen and many more.
