Hopped off the bus to visit Hayes Valley area of San Francisco. Playground busy with children and people sitting on the benches enjoying the day. Next to the playground you will find Miette where there is plenty of cookies, cakes and other confectioneries.
On the other side of the playground, I noticed a group of people setting up tables, benches and umbrellas behind a chain link fence. The corrugated metal container was opened showing a bar complete with beer taps, ready to serve customers after completely setup. I wandered over and noticed the sign Biergarten on the gate. Biergarten, who's bigger sister is Suppenkuche(located in Hayes Valley also), is exactly as the name states, a beer garden. They offer German beers and eats, very similar what you would find in a beer garden in Germany. I would love to sit outside under the outdoor string lighting, having a beer and bite with friends or even meeting new people. I wonder if they even play oom-pa-pa music?
Right next door you will find Smitten Ice Cream, where you can watch your ice cream being made from scratch with some funky machine using liquid Nitrogen. They offer seasonal flavors and I opted for the blood orange ice cream with pistachio shortbread. Makes my mouth water typing about it.
