The next day, I met up with two of my college friends at Jovino - San Francisco for lunch since one of them worked in the area.
To be honest, I don't really remember anything about the food. We ordered a few sandwiches and a burger, and shared everything as usual. In fact, during our senior year on a cruise from Miami, Florida to Key West and Cozumel, Mexico, we would coordinate who ordered what for dinner each night so that we could try everything. Because if they were truly my friends, wouldn't they order what I liked? :)
A BLT? The bread was too thick on the sandwiches and I vaguely remember them tasting a bit dry.
But the food was beside the point. I just wanted to catch up with my friends.
On the way out, we passed by La Boulange Cafe & Bakery, where we had a much more memorable meal the last time I was in town.
