Ok. The Slanted Door is my favorite restaurant, hands down.

If I could eat anywhere before I die ( For example: if crazy bald cats were about to take over the planet), I would eat at this amazing place.

So I guess this isn't very high school friendly but hey - sometimes we just gotta have adventures and San Francisco is definitely the place for a teenager to explore and have fun!

Located in the Ferry Building by Pier 1 and in the heart of San Francisco, the restaurant and location itself could not be anymore perfect. The view of the ocean and the Bay Bridge just makes you feel like you're in a movie.

I usually don't dig fusion restaurants (I like my stuff authentic thank you very much) but this is an exception. 

The desserts are so creative and the pastry chef is a master. They change their dessert menus every few weeks so each time you go, there will always be something different.

Indeed it was different. I freaking got pineapple cotton candy for dessert and it literally came out on a smooth rock plate and there was this freakishly awesome metal stick with a giant yellow wad of tangy (not too sweet) pineapple cotton candy.

How in the world does one come up with these things? Seriously? Dear Pastry Chef, you are a genius.

Even after you're done dining at this delightful place, you can walk around the Ferry Building and go the famous Ciao Bella for more dessert and Acme for bread. (I'm serious, Acme bread is probably the best bread ever.)

..But if you do plan to go try making reservations because it is usually very busy.

And on weekends, this small cute building holds a lively farmer's market filled with music and delicious food and cute trinkets.

Next time you're looking for an adventure - specifically a food adventure, add the San Fran Ferry Building to your list.
