One of my special treasures in San Francisco is hidden away in Nob Hill on Pacific and Mason--Lalola. Many laughs have been shared with friends enjoying this comfy neighborhood restaurant while sipping sangria and nibbling on Spanish tapas. I adore this spot because it's perfect for all occasions--catching up with an old friend celebrating or with a loud group of girlfriends or a lovely dinner with the family. And while I'm not typically a person who orders dessert at restaurants (usually because I am too full), I can't leave without ordering Pudin de Curasan al Chocolate. Translation: Croissant Chocolate Bread Pudding...Enough said.
