SF Eats: The Snug

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that [The Snug] is one of my favorite brunch spots. Mandi was the first person to ever introduce me to it and my first time there I ordered the pasta for a meal. I wanted to try something completely different! The only breakfast thing about it was the poached egg. If you’re up for something a little heartier, this is delicious though and you won’t regret it.

However, mine and Kevin’s go-to seems to be the same thing always. We never stray. For me, I order the Everything Naan with trout roe, cauliflower schmear and pickled red cabbage. It’s a very non-traditional choice, but the flavors from it are amazing. From the photo, it may not seem like a lot, but this fills you up quick. Kevin’s selection is the classic Breakfast Burger which he claims is better than most other places he’s tried.

These are the two things that always keep us coming back. Coincidentally, it’s the photos on Instagram that get people asking me what we’re having and where they can get it!

  • ☺️ when it’s summer we still wear all black 🖤
  • this is where we live now 🥰
  • The only way we’re getting through quarantine is @juni_sf meals
  • We’re making an even bigger leap back into the archives now! I took these at Tết - the Vietnamese New Year Festival back in Feb 2008 and to this day, it’s still one of my favorite photo sets. The vibrant colors always get me 🥰
  • I’m enjoying these throwback photos more than I thought I would. I didn’t have an Instagram until mid-2012 and that’s mostly because I was still using a BlackBerry. Sometimes as we change computers, carrying over those photos with you is too much of a hassle, but I’m now seeing that there’s a reason why some of these still live on Facebook and Flickr.

My team in 2011 will agree with me on this. Campfire OK was one of the best bands we worked with that year. 💯 would book them over and over again and we sort of did. Coffee House didn’t always draw in an enormous crowd, but once a month these were my favorite nights. I love looking back and remembering how talented the individuals I worked with were, but also they were the kindest humans. ❤️
  • I was so excited for my move to California back in 2013, but it wasn’t exactly great timing for Yow Yow! Just before I left, we were able to partner with @nordstrom ‘s wedding suite, @mollymoonicecream , and @drysoda on some of my favorite collaborations.

Elliot Suhr captured these photos for us beautifully. I honestly should have hired him to do all of our collab photos. And even though this is a semi-candid shot of @vronlimhughes and I on our way out of our meeting with Dry, it’s a reminder of how far we’ve come with Yow Yow! Her opinions are the ones I trust the most and to this day she still edits the pieces I have the hardest time writing and is the last set of eyes before they go live.
  • 😆 I’m about to shake up my grid aesthetic! We have limited options when it comes to shooting at home, but now seems like a better time than ever to revisit some photos that we’ve never shared before. Despite this very moody look, I had a great time at this wedding in Yosemite back in 2016 ❤️
  • 🍔 🤤
  • As California begins it’s reopening process, I realized I’m never gonna see the city like this ever again. This is a block down by the wharf and the only shop open.
