Woodhouse Fish Company

If there's one thing that binds the food scenes between SF and Boston, it's seafood. Boston is known for its epic lobster rolls, and San Francisco is the birthplace of the amazing cioppino (fish stew). 

Both cities have mind-blowing oyster selections as well. One of my favorite local spots for oysters in SF is Woodhouse Fish Company. Tucked on a busy corner of the Castro, Woodhouse has $1 oysters every Tuesday to kick off your week. It's so easy to justify stopping in for a quick bite whenever you walk by!

Aside from their scrumptious seafood, Woodhouse Fish Co has this impossibly quaint ambiance that makes you feel like you could be in a small fishing village, even amid the hustle and bustle of Market Street. From floor tile crabs, to fishing equipment and black-and-white photos of SF in the early 1800's, I love the scene that it sets.

Fresh, cool, and topped with a squeeze of lemon, the oysters themselves are always a treat.

The local nautical antiques really make the seafood experience come alive. It reminds me of the amazing time we had last year at the Boston Seafood Festival. Aside from clam chowder and lobster rolls, they had an oyster shucking contest and a 39.5 lb lobster. I can't wait for this summer's seafood adventures!

Spring into Rocksbox


Some say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but I disagree. Give me variety in my shiny things and I'm a happy camper. That's probably why I'm fully obsessed with Rocksbox, since they send me new goodies every month to keep up with my jewelry game!

This month, I received the incredible Mia Necklace by Slate, the gorgeous Celeste Bracelet in Gold by Gamine, and Graduated Bar Chandelier earrings by Trina Turk. I loved the golden theme, and how the necklace really made me feel like a princess!

Shiki Sushi + Local Macaroons

Sushi isn't for everyone. I get that. It's a bunch of slippery, often raw slices of fish. Despite this, I happen to love it. When I was little, I thought I didn't like sushi because all I had tried was the California Roll. As I became more adventurous as a foodie, I realized the big wide world of sushi options, and how awesome it is! There are countless different textures, styles, and flavors of sushi, all of which are brought to you in the prettiest presentation. 

When I came to Boston, it was important to me to find a really amazing sushi place, and Shiki Sushi definitely lives up to that high standard. We came here for lunch and ordered the Sushi Moriawase lunch set, which comes with miso soup, salad, and a plate of chef's choice nigiri (fish + rice) and maki (rolled) sushi.

There's something about Japanese salads I always enjoy, and I think it's the dressing. I also love the salty miso soup.

How pretty is this plate? I love the Japanese focus on presentation in their food - they really make it a work of art.

After lunch, we perused the cutest little local farmer's market, where we found these delish Boston Bonbon macaroons. From right to left, these are green tea, nutella, and red bean paste flavored. The nutella was my fave!
