Day 7 - il Cane Rosso / Ghirardelli Square (San Francisco)

After the wedding hoola, the newlyweds went back to reality work and the rest of made a day trip up to San Francisco. We had something big - and ridiculously delicious - in mind, I tell ya. 

We spent quite a bit of time around touristy Fisherman's Wharf and Ferry Building, stopping by at il Cane Rosso for lunch. 

The Marin Sun Farms Beef Brisket sandwich with cherry tomato conserva and mustard aioli made it to this list of '20 Epic SF Sandwiches To Eat Before You Die'.

Sandwiched between crusty yet soft Acme bread, there were definitely no complaints. 

Funny enough, I preferred the slow-roasted pork shoulder sandwich with cabbage-cilantro slaw. Funny because KW liked it better too when I checked in with him hours later. 

A roasted red pepper soup filled the cracks left over from the sandwiches. 

TA DAH!!! This visit to Ghirardelli Square was super memorable as we had been saving it for the munchkin's first ice cream experience. Cue tear running down cheek. 

Cookie Bottom Sundae - I swear ice cream sundae dreams are made of this. Just as good as the first time round.

And because we didn't fly 18 hours and sit through a 2 hour car ride for one sundae, we also got The Gold Rush, which consisted of vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, melted peanut butter, chopped almonds and Ghirardelli squares. 

I think the munchkin was surprised by the coldness (cold foods are not his favorite thing) but he warmed to it eventually and I have a 10 second video to prove it.

And if you thought it was a sneaky move of mine to introduce R to the best sundae in dah world and ruin him for life... well, guilty as charged. 

A couple of post sugar-high faces. Mission accomplished!

The gold rush sounds EPIC! Really wish Perth had more decent chocolate cafes and cake/dessert stores!
