I am always down for Vietnamese food, because I'm Vietnamese. The Slanted Door elevates Vietnamese cuisine; I like the rolls (spring & imperial) and any vermicelli noodle dish! Try to make a reservation beforehand. Although on the pricier side, I was impressed by the presentation and flavors captured in the rendition of some of my fave family classic dishes. #MyTravelAdvisor

Built for the World's Fair in late 1930s, then becoming a naval base, Treasure Island has been re-purposed into residences and a hub for entrepreneurs and local artists & vendors; has awesome views of the Downtown SF skyline, numerous urban wineries, and you can eat/shop/play all at the Treasure Island Flea Market (last full weekend of month-brings together the best food trucks around the Bay!). Only 10 minutes from downtown, can be tricky to get there; it's a total hidden gem! #MyTripAdvice

Seriously such a fun (and historical) way to get around the city and visit places like the Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Financial District, and near Ghiradelli Square...by Cable Cars! This is a tourist attraction in itself. There are 3 cable car lines and they are easy to navigate and locate. Bring small bills cash to buy a 1-way or all-day passport (other fares available). #MyTripAdvice

Experience the grandeaur of San Francisco City Hall. I only got to see it from the outside, but definitely want to tour the inside and see more of the intricate & elaborate 'Beaux-Arts' architecture. #MyTripAdvice

Full House opening scene anyone? Stop by the local grocery store or grab lunch to-go and plop yourself down on the grassy hills of Alamo Square for a picnic in front of the 'Old Painted Ladies' and other gorgeous Victorian homes! #MyTripAdvice

You won't go wrong with Bi-Rite Creamery & Bakeshop. Treat yourself and get a Banana Split; after being split and bananas are sprinkled with brown sugar and caramelized with a torch in front of you! Awesome artisan-al flavors like: Salted Caramel, Honey Lavender, Balsamic Strawberry to name a few! #MyTripAdvice

The Palace of Fine Arts is a breathtaking place. It's Roman-like columns, statues, and architecture with surrounding lagoon and foliage is picturesque and takes you to another time/place. #MyTripAdvice

Tartine Bakery will change your life. Many will agree that the Morning Buns & Almond Croissants are the BEST! Popularity yields long lines so try to come early! #MyTripAdvice

You KNOW you can't visit SF without experiencing the Golden Gate Bridge; no matter from which angle or vantage point, or even walk on the bridge itself; it is a sight to behold. I visited on a very windy and cold day, but it was still a magnificent structure to see. #MyTripAdvice

Conservatory of Flowers situated in the Golden Gate Park is spectacular to say the least. I got lost among a botanical haven of over 2,000 plants and flowers species; an enchanting secret garden. The greenhouse dates back to the 1800s and I'm a sucker for beautiful eras like the Victorian period which shows in the white wooden architecture & colored glass. Admission is under $10 & first Tuesday of the month are free! Pack a snacks or a lunch and hang out on the lawn afterwards #MyTripAdvice

Visit one of the city's most famous historical landmarks for the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market! I couldn't imagine a better way to start off the day than perusing & tasting the wide array of produce and street food! And you're also supporting local farmers & vendors. Saturday is the most popular day to visit the farmer's market. #MyTripAdvice

Some rave that the #1 Coffee & Espresso beverages in SF are from Blue Bottle Coffee. After stopping in at the Ferry Building location, I must say it's pretty darn good and you'll want to pair your delicious cup of goodness with a caramelized Belgian Waffle. There may be a wait, but if you're a coffee, latte and such fanatic like I am, you'll want to experience Blue Bottle, thank take a stroll in and around the Ferry Building. #MyTripAdvice
