Live it Local | Media Noche

Foodies rejoice! San Francisco has gotten itself another amazing Cuban restaurant 🙂  Media Noche is located in the mission district and the interiors are very modern with strong Havana vibes. Their menu has a decent selection of rice bowls, sandwiches and a few healthier options too. Upon first glance I was instantly drawn to the Lechon Asado. I blame the Filipino part of me.

Live it Local | Afterlife Boutique + TacoBar

Being lucky enough to grow up in San Francisco, I’ve bounced from neighborhood to neighborhood and experienced great local shopping/eats everywhere I went.

I’m starting this segment to feature awesome spots that you should totally check out if you’re visiting, or if you’re looking to discover new places in your own city :pWalking around the sunny mission neighborhood I rediscovered one my favorite vintage shops in the neighborhood. Afterlife Boutique right between Valencia and 21st street.

They sell great 80’s & 90’s retro pieces and unique jewelry at really reasonable prices.Even though I had only a few minutes to browse I couldn’t help but get sucked into their great jewelry selection.

I snagged two pairs of earrings at really reasonable prices. The total was around 20 bucks which for quality jewelry, pretty amazing.

 

Golden Tattoo bracelet not from AfterLife, but  I had to pair it with my nice new earrings :p

So you’re walking in the Fillmore District when you start craving Mexican food and you wonder to yourself where do I go? You go to Tacobar!

Mike and I just stopped here on a sunny Saturday afternoon for a quick lunch. Sipping my margarita I enjoyed a shrimp quesadilla that was pretty filling. Also featured and also delicious – the chicken Torta.

Check back for more great local spots!
