Cherry Blossom festival FOOD!

I look forward to the Cherry Blossom festival in San Francisco every year! It is 2 weekends in a row, both Saturday & Sunday. There are amazing vendors that sell tshirts, jewelry, sushi-makers, & more. It's usually sunny since it's always during April, spring time. Entertainment is on-going with singers, dancers, & even taiko drummers. There is even a beer & sake tent. And on the 2nd weekend, there's a big parade showcasing the cherry blossom court. But, the BEST part about this festival is the FOOD!!

Last weekend I ate SO much! From grilled pork vietnamese sandwich, nachos, fried mochi, takoyaki, saimin salad, pork riblets, lumpia, butter mochi, kalua pig plate, to uni/ikura handroll, natto roll, & an izakaya dinner (from restaurants near by). And there is still so much more I'd like to try, like the teri burger!

  1. YAY you got BBQ Riblets! I used to work for the agency that puts on that booth. Worked Cherry Blossom and Nihonmachi Street Fairs 2 years in a row and it was a blast--also as a result I'd recognize those yellow shirts from anywhere (oh my hair would smell like a BBQ pit for a week):P

  2. ohhhh I didn't know that Kate! I've been every year for the past 6 years or so! I LOVE LOVE all the food there!
