Embarcadero Skyway - SF Walking Tour

Website: Date: August 13, 2017 Sunday 2PM Rating: 4 out 5 Stars Tour Duration: Around 1.15 hours. We finished around 3.15 Walking difficulty: Not much of a walk, this is prolly the shortest for me. Feedback: Quite interesting that there is such an "urban oasis" in the Embarcadero Center Area. Seems like  a Sky Garden/Bridge connecting various buildings. Really nice. Bently Reserve, Formerly Federal Reserve Bldg 400 Sansome Street If you go thru the side street and take the stairs, you can see the back of this building, and you can notice that the Portico is actually not attached to the building.  This was actually annexed later.   Early 90s Boston properties bought is as part of Embarcadero and added the portico.  This is actually a thing about two things about SF's preservation laws:  Anything added can't touch the original building can't pretend to be like the originals Ur

Website: Address: Four Embarcadero Center, just right opposite Ferry Building Food Rating: 4 out of 5 Feedback: Nothing fantastic but it's cheap and good food especially during happy hour! Drinks were 50% during that time as well. So if you are looking for something cheap and good during 5-7 pm on a weekday, this is a good place! Tip:  HAPPY HOUR: Monday - Friday: 5:00pm - 7:00pm where all the appetizers and Drinks are 50% off.

Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream, SF

Website: Address: Several locations  but the ones I have visited Mission: 2790A Harrison Street San Francisco, California 94110 Directions Embarcadero: Inside Ferry Building Feedback: Seems like another one of those super popular ice cream in SF.  Lines is not as bad as BiRite but can be long especially in the Ferry Building.  They have funky / interesting flavors like 'secret breakfast' - has cornflakes and many others. Personally, it's OK. Nothing amazing.... would prolly just go to Mitchell's. The Harrison Street (Mission) Branch Princess Pink Lemonade Sorbet

Crystal Jade Jian Nan @ Embarcadero, San Francisco

Address:  4 Embarcadero Center #1, San Francisco, CA 94111 Menu: Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Feedback: If you like authentic Chinese food and a good Xiao Long Bao (Soup dumplings), then this is a good place for you.  Surprisingly, there seems to be no one here.  There's no crowd, not sure if it is because it is slightly pricy. Their special cocktail for SuperBowl Event :) Yang Zhou Fried Rice - YUMMY!! Sliced beef with mushroom and garlic - Beef was tender and good. Love their Xiao Long Baos Such a long hallway!!!
