I had gotten a text a few days ago about an appointment for my hair stylist opening up on my day off. I was beyond excited! The next soonest appointment was May 12. I have known this lady for almost 10 years. She always does an amazing job.
I went from this…
She has a salon in San Francisco, works at another salon in Petaluma, and sometimes I even go to her house to get my hairs cut. Today I got to visit the SF salon for the first time.
Her salon was around the corner from a mini china town sort of street. Hubs had driven me there, and walked around to scope out our lunch spot after the haircut.
He found this amazing home in the wall bar…
They serve dogfish head on TAP!
If you know anything about beer, you understand what a rare find this is. He was excited, and I couldn’t wait to hit it up!
But first we opted to get some local flavor…
Yes, it included duck heads…
I took a bite…but was not a fan
Then hubs forced me to drink a pint of the dogfish head “hell hound”. Evidently they only brew very small batches of it, and only sell it by the keg.
It was amazing! A must try!
We also picked up some Dim Sum!
I told hubs we should have just gotten dim sum. The dumplings were so good!
This place was no joke. If you wanted any dumplings, you had to order 3 at a time AND you had to get the same ones. I heard one lady try to order one of each of a certain type. The lady looked at her and was like “we no do that!!!!”
Dim Sum Nazi!
The customer totally backed down and said she would see her next week.
We got 2 pork buns and 3 shrimp dumplings to split.

Hubs wanted to try a shark fin dumpling. I was like “hell no”. I wasn’t adding to that disaster…
Overall it was amazing day! And no I’m probably not going to work out. And ya I’ll probably get comments about drinking…doesn’t matter. The beer was THAT good! If you come across it, you HAVE to try it!
Have you ever tried duck head?
What’s the weirdest food you have tried?
