The steak:

... and salmon:

... were nicely cooked on the salads ($13.95 and $17.45) at Bubba’s:

... but the leafy elements were a bit wilty leaving us to believe that this is a better place for morning eggs than afternoon greens.

As we get the hutch rehabitable, we find ourselves at the Rustic Bakery:

... almost daily for coffee and pastries.

All of the fruit scones ($3.75):

... have been worthwhile with Frog Hollow stone fruit in some selections, but we found the ginger variation to be the triumphant triangle.

They also make a baby kouign amann ($1.75):

... that was a brief buttery bundle than may not trump b. patisserie’s version, but it was still a pleasing petite pastry.

Steak, shrimp and sausage:

... at El Tazumal was sided with salad and salsa. The spice in the tube steak made it the most pronounced protein on this platter periferied with salad, cheese, rice and beans. Thick tortillas:

... acted as toothsome transport.

A pork and a cheese and veg pupusa:

... were fine filled frisbees to finish off our Taz tucker. We will have to return to check out more of this simple, Salvador station.

A couple of margherita:

... and pepperoni slices ($3.95 each):

... at Tony’s:

... were fine fortification that may not be at the top of our pie chart, but were still a solid snack before navigating by non-natives on the skinny sidewalks in North Beach.

Okay, the Saturday Ferry Building Farmers Market has gotten seriously out of hand. It’s like an oversold an Outside Lands without the bands.

We moshed our way though to the end of Primavera’s chilaquiles chila-queue:

... and who should we get behind but Jesse?

We were able to catch up a bit while making our way to our breakfast. This egg, beans, chip and salsa combo:

... is good go to grub that fortified us for another round of over-intimacy with the colossal crowd as we pork-cured an item that we missed during our PDX pitstop - 4505 chicarrones:

Our joyous reunions with these derma affirmations was sided with a swell sausage sandwich ($9.00):

Perhaps the Saturday market now demands and earlier start in order to get a Sightglass coffee without an hourglass wait.

The patio at the Hilltop Cafe:

... was a cool perching place for a beer break:

... in Novato.

We hit happy hour and pulled through some swiney sliders ($5.00):

... buffalo wings ($4.00):

... and calamari ($5.00):

... which were all solid, standard-issue bar bites.

The fish tacos ($5.00):

... were bland but this cheap and cheerful chow stop was a welcome refuge from the heat.

There is “beer for Dad” and “salad for Mom” according to the promotional video on Best lil’ Porkhouse’s website.

Breaking away from their culinary gender profiling, we both got “dad” drafts to go with some (gender neutral) chicken wings:

... and ribs:

... sided with tot-like fried okra:

... and kale slaw (aka mom food.):

The chicken and pork were standard issue proteins served up by a friendly staff.

Not one for the rotation, but dads and moms might like it.

... flankeronied some fine ribs ($16.00):

... at 4505.

The crisp-crusted, deep fried mac and cheese, house made hot dog-studded brick was a fine foundation for the sensational swine spokes which we splashed with mustardy vinegar sauce and sopped with a puffy Parkerhouse roll.

Spicy fries were globbed with garlicky, herby, peppery ‘naise with chili oil to chase our cheeseburger ($8.75):

... and cooling beer at this hedonistic hideout.

We will return for more meat soon.

Dinner at Picco:

... meant sensational scallops:

... a reorder of hamachi crudo with salsa verde with little olive studded croutons:

... silky salmon with asparagus:

... a salad of carrots and kale:

... mushroomy mini burgers:

... and a risotto with peas:

... that revolves around every half hour.

A couple bottles of Crocker & Star Sauvignon Blanc sealed the deal at our go-to Larkspur gathering place.

We sipped a martini glass of cider and some chenin blanc:

... at Lincoln Park where a bunch of broccolini ($6.00):

... bloomed with soffrito, grated egg and crunchy bread crumbs.

Juicy watermelon sang with salty calamari in a green-goddessed tomato and crouton salad ($10.00):

... before a cheese plate ($13.00):

... with Central Coast Creamers Big Rock blue and Matos St. George cow from-ations and olive-oiled, toasty bread:

... from M.H. Bread & Butter.

We loved logging some time at Lincoln and will park here again soon.
