TYPICAL SAN FRANCISCO BREAKFAST

house potatoes

Last week, my husband, his siblings and I traveled to San Francisco to celebrate their Grandmother's 88th Birthday.
Of course, we took this opportunity to eat at our favorite restaurants.
My husband and I have our favorite go-to-breakfast places in the city.
For breakfast, we either visit Herbivore or Mijita (click here for Mijita post).

For this visit, we had my 2 sister-in-law accompany us for breakfast at Herbivore.

Husband ordered the SOUTHWEST SCRAMBLED TOFU.
Sister-in-law #1- the SCRAMBLED TOFU.
Sister-in-law #2-the BASIL PESTO TOFU WITH HOUSE POTATOES, TOAST AND FRUIT SPREAD (not pictured).
I ordered the CORN CAKES WITH BLACK BEANS, SALSA, GUACAMOLE AND VEGAN SOUR CREAM. (also not pictured).
We also ordered a side HOUSE POTATOES.

My husband and sister-in-law #2 ended up switching scrambles.
She felt that the pesto was way too strong but husband thought it was perfect.
Sister-in-law #1 liked her tofu.
And my corn cakes were dry and tasted like cardboard.
Big mistake, because I usually order the DESSERT CREPES-grilled fruit and maple syrup tofu whip.

The house potatoes were GREAT as usual.

For the rest of our stay, we had breakfast at Mijita.
We always order the chilaquiles with pinto beans and a side of guacamole.
We love them so much, the day before we left,we ate here twice, breakfast and lunch.

So when in San Francisco, make it a point to eat breakfast at these 2 places.
Herbivore is 100% Vegan.
Mijita is Vegan-Friendly.

I just love tofu scramble! Especially when it's served with tasty sides. Herbivore's southwest scrambled tofu plate looks like a winner to me.
