Saturday Sightseeing in San Francisco’s Chinatown

Published in: Daily Photo

Welcome to Chinatown!

My in-laws are visiting us this weekend and wanted to visit Chinatown, so we all drove across the bridge into the city, parked at Union Square and walked down Grant Street, which is the main street in Chinatown.

When we got hungry, I Yelped a place called Hong Kong Clay Pot Restaurant (OMG, the walnut prawns… To die for! I also inhaled an entire plate of their Chinese broccoli with garlic.), which was really, really good and affordable.


From there we walked back to Union Square, which is a few city blocks away. I thought it might be fun to take my mother-in-law to the MAC Pro Store at 45 Powell Street and treat her to a lipstick.

She ended up falling in love with the new Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Fearless, a sheer, soft pink.

Of course, I couldn’t leave empty-handed, so I picked up Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Staunchly Stylish, a pinkish beige that works great with pink and peach lip colors. 🙂

This way to Chinatown!

I love the color and designs on these bracelets. Wouldn’t they make a great lipstick?

    I love China Town and North Beach, one of my fav restaurants is over there. It’s called the House. Mind you I haven’t been in 6 years but it used to be pretty good. Japanese Italian Fusion!
