papi's day

as many of you know, sunday was father's day. so, on father's day, we filled the day with things that papi loves. we spent the day in the city, eating at some famous places & walking in the city's largest park. my father loves to watch man v. food on the travel channel & he wanted to go to ike's place (where one of the episodes was filmed) & try out their sandwiches. they have a whole menu of vegetarian & vegan sandwiches!!! to say the least, it was pretty amazing & if you are ever in the area, definitely check the place out. believe me, it's worth the long line to get inside : )
the park was nice, relaxing, & quite beautiful. we took a ton of fun photos & my mom & papi had fun sliding down the railings with us : )
to end the day, we ate at a burmese restaurant that got my taste buds going crazy happy : ) they prepared the tea leaf salad right at our table & served us our samosa & felafel soup at our table as well. both of these dishes were featured on the food network. i've never had burmese food, but it was amazing! it seemed to be a combination of indian & thai food.
anyways, sorry for the photo overload, but i couldn't pick & choose very well today.... : )


  1. Looks like it was a fun trip. Say was that at the Japanese Gardens inside Golden Gate Park? Or was that Asian inspired gazebo thing somewhere else?

  2. Mmm. All that food sounds amazing! Looks like a great Father's Day to me! :)

  3. Looks like such a fun day! I remember Ike's Place from Man vs Food as well! So cool that you guys get to visit! Nice to know they have vege friendly options as what was showcased on the programme was lots of meaty stuff :)

  4. i didn't know you all were sisters! how darling :) you guys totally have to go to herbivore next time, too!
