Side Views: Looking Up in Downtown San Francisco

I remember walking downtown San Francisco two years ago, getting lost, and then looking up... and falling in love with the architectural details of the old buildings...





The City by the Bay boasts some of the most modern structures, showcasing the latest architectural trends. But it's the older structures that give San Francisco its unique charm, with its art deco and classic buildings located downtown.


Elegant, graceful, with an unmistakable class from a bygone era.




Sometimes, all you need to do is look up to see things differently.

  2. I'll be traveling to US soon and I have a 2 days stop over in Sanfo. So if you have only 2 days there, what are the most important and best scenery to see and restaurant to dine on?

    1. Hi Lovely, lucky you! Two days though is pretty short, but here are my recos:

      Swan Oyster Depot: If you like fresh oysters and seafood, this is a must try. It's a pretty cool place frequented by locals, nice vibe. Check out my previous post on Swan Oyster Depot here http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2011/09/swan-oyster-depot-true-san-francisco.html.

      House of Prime Rib: Excellent prime rib, great formal dining place. Nice place to have dinner before the long flight home.

      Joe's Cable Car: For the best burgers, try Joe's Cable Car's fresh ground beefsteaks. And have a chat with Joe, he's usually there.

      Tommy's Joynt: If you like beef brisket and corned beef, go for Tommy's Joynt for their huge dinner plates.

      Check out my previous post http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2011/03/thousand-miles.html, which features a photo from Joe's Cable Car and Tommy's Joynt.

      SFO is a great foodie city, lots of good places to eat. I suggest you also ask the concierge where the locals eat, and let me know if you discover some new places! Thanks Lovely and have a great trip!
