I’ve written about the array of glorious brunch options in San Francisco before, so I’ll get straight to the point: I was back in the Bay Area last weekend and of course I enjoyed MORE brunches with MORE bottomless mimosas and MORE benedicts and MORE bacon. Millionaire’s Bacon, to be exact.
You can find this delicacy at a good handful of restaurants in San Fran, but we first encountered it at Blackwood, an “American Thai Fusion” restaurant in the Marina area. In spite of the name, Millionaire’s Bacon will just set you back a couple extra dollars on top of your $10-20 brunch plate, so it’s not a bad deal. Especially considering the fact that this is no ordinary bacon—it’s super thick and meaty, coated in sweet maple syrup and honey, liberally sprinkled with spicy red chile flakes. After this flavor explosion, I’m never eating regular bacon again.
You can make your own, too! You definitely don’t have to live in San Fran (and you don’t have to be a millionaire, obvs) to enjoy this ultra-rich bacon.
I recently went to eat some food – uh, I mean, visit some friends – in the Bay Area. Kidding, of course my friends are first priority, but obviously any time you”re visiting San Francisco you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn”t take advantage of its awesome culinary scene.
One thing SF does really well is brunch. Not only brunch, but boozy brunch (and honestly why are you going out to brunch if you”re not planning on drinking?), particularly mimosas. Search SF Yelp for “bottomless mimoas” and you”ll get over 100 results. Preach! No self-respecting bruncher is gonna stop at just one mimosa, let”s be real.
Just as mimosas are an integral part of brunch, eggs benedict is the brunch dish to beat. It”s indulgent without being completely devoid of nutritious ingredients (eggs! They”re good for you!), and it”s just a liiittle too complicated to want to cook at home on a regular basis, so you feel justified paying $13 for someone else to whip up that hollandaise. When getting brunch in the city that overflows with brunch, where to find the best benedict? Here you go:
