Today, I had a special visitor for lunch!
My mom! 🙂
We decided to have a lunch date at a delicious restaurant right on the Embarcadero, Perrys.
Perrys has been in SF for over 40 years and is known for its delicious American food, friendly service, and great bar.
In 1969, Perry Butler, a 26-year-old Dartmouth College graduate, was working as an advertising executive, when he set out to follow his dream of opening his own restaurant. Freshly relocated to San Francisco, and compelled to recreate the hustle and bustle of the New York neighborhood saloons that he missed, Butler opened Perry’s on Union Street.Source
Who doesn’t love a good back story to a great restaurant? 😉
I scanned the menu before settling on one of my favorite entrees… which just so happens to be one of my mom’s favorites as well!
Pulled Pork Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries!
I looooove Pulled Pork, and the only thing I think I love more than that are perfectly made (read: CRISPY!) Sweet Potato Fries!
Would you believe this portion is a 1/2 order? My mom and I split the sandwich thinking it would be more than enough for each of our lunches… and we were definitely right.
I was as stuffed from our food as Renee Zellweger probably was from the 8 Green Teas she consumed the other day.
I reluctantly came back to the office where I obviously “needed” dessert… in the form of TJs Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds. Not only do I deem them “healthy” because dark chocolate has health benefits, but I’m also obsessed with them.
And just can’t stay away.
give into my food coma get some work done before it’s (almost!) officially Friday! 🙂
Are you a go-out-to-lunch or a bring-your-own?
I’m typically (I try!) to be a bring-your-own.. but I do love going out every now and again!
