La Mediterranee Noe

When you cannot decide what to eat, just order everything. La Mediterranee Noe, which is actually in the Castro, offers an amazing lunch meza platter where you can taste a little bit of everything. This option requires a minimum of 2 people, which is why I was excited to take my cousin here for her birthday. La Mediterranee is one of the best Mediterranean restaurants in San Francisco. The 10 dishes in the meza include: hummus, spinach and feta fillo, cheese karni filo, dolmas, chicken pomegranate, potato salad, lamb kofta, baba ganoush, tabouleh, and levant sanwiches.

To walk off a bit of our enormous meal, we took a stroll through the Botanical Gardens in San Francisco. This whimsical garden, in the heart of Golden Gate Park, is a staggering 55 acres with over 8,500 plants from around the world; yet it somehow remains a hidden gem in SF. SF residents have free access to the garden, and it is lovely to visit rain or shine.
