We started out with samosas because samosas are, like, the best thing ever.
Oh yeah, samosa-y goodness. Want to see the inside and wish you were eating samosas right now? I thought you guys might be into that.
Ali and I both ordered curries. She got the Chana Masala Curry.
I'm back in Pittsburgh now, and it's pretty depressing. Being in San Francisco filled me with yearning. I feel like I could do so much better for myself. It's weird. I both fit in and stood out in SF. It was easy to meet people and there was something fun to do every night. There were more places to eat than I could fit into one week, even though other vegans there expressed disappointment in the vegan options! That really surprised me. OK, I agree, every city could do better with vegan accessibility, and I would love it if I could figure out ways to make veganism more common and accessible to everyone everywhere, but compared to Pittsburgh, SF was vegan heaven.
Still, I have vegan heaven in my own kitchen every day! Maybe people over in SF are doomed to cook less because of the many, many options. I wouldn't trade cooking for anything in the world. It's truly my greatest pleasure on Earth to cook good food, especially if someone wants to come over and share my enjoyment with me.
I only bought one item in SF to bring back with me. It was this jar of salsa from the restaurant Papalote that folks said was good.
