With roasted potatoes, sautéed vegetables, and mushrooms. Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
Wow, this was a lot of food! The pork was ok, a bit on the dry side, but it was definitely hearty and healthier since it was pretty lean. This was a nightly special, and I’m glad that we gave it a try.
Clams, prawns, calamari, salmon sautéed with garlic and olive oil in a light tomato sauce. $14.95 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
I like Firewood because it’s an easy and comfortable place to grab a nice, hearty meal. The food isn’t fancy but it’s consistent and generally tasty. This pasta was good and they included a decent amount of proteins. They also give you plenty of food so I always have leftovers.
Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, served with French fries. $10.50 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
As airport food goes, Firewood Cafe is solid. It’s a good value and the food is actually pretty good. This burger was moist and plenty big. I just wish they would toast the buns. The fries were delicious though!
Served with a side of capellini pasta, oven roasted seasonal vegetables and bread. $15.50 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
Mmm, I love chicken parmigiana. This was huge and very good! The chicken was generously smothered in marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese which was amazing! I know that Firewood is the best restaurant in the world, but it definitely holds a place in my heart for quick quality Italian food.
Sautéed oyster and crimini mushrooms with caramelized onions and homemade tomato sauce. $10.25 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
You really can’t go wrong with sauteed mushrooms and caramelized onions – this was delicious! I will say that there may have been too many toppings for the thin crust to handle (gasp, did I just say that?).
Sidewalk graffiti, Market Street. I usually see the spray painted coi fish stencils on the sidewalk, but this one was new to me!
Rotisserie chicken, pesto sauce, roasted red peppers and sliced red onions. $10.95 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
This pizza was ok. I usually wouldn’t say this, but I think it had too many toppings and pesto. The crust seemed weighted down by everything. I prefer some of their other pizza options.
July 3, 2015. $12.95
This was at SFO and it wasn’t as good. The crust was thicker and a little burnt. Not my favorite.
Pinot noir, red wine. $6.95
View from Dolores Park. From the corner of Church and 20th Streets, you can get a spectacular view of the city. Mission Dolores High School is to the left and the newly remodeled playground is to the right. On a warm, sunny day Dolores Park gets packed with hipsters and sunbathers!
Romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese and fresh garlic croutons tossed with homemade caesar dressing. Additional fixings include caramelized onions, candied walnuts, and bleu cheese. $12.20 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
For some reason, I sometimes crave the caesar salad at Firewood. I always add roasted chicken on top and take full advantage of the 3 free additional toppings. “Lite on the dressing”, of course!
Marinated olives. Complimentary.
Tangle of telephone wires over 17th Street at dawn. Mornings in San Francisco can create the best colors. This subdued purple was absolutely beautiful.
