Sunset Along Embarcadero & Night Photography - San Francisco, CA (Part 3)

I recently took two trips to San Francisco, CA visiting different places and taking photos. I went to many tourist attraction areas, some lesser known places, and took quite some street photography. I am here to share with you the photos that I took on these trips. The photos I took will be split across 7 blog posts. Day 1 of my trip in San Francisco took place on 1/27/2016, and day 2 of my trip in San Francisco took place on 2/1/2016.

While at Chinatown, I saw that the sun is setting, and I quickly rushed out to the Embarcadero. My first stop was Pier 7. Here is a sunset photo from the end of Pier 7.

Next up is some food photography from Hog Island Oyster Co in the Ferry Building. Here is a plate of oysters (several different species).

Here is a little story behind why I came to this restaurant to eat. Ever since I saw the Munchies YouTube documentary on this restaurant, I've always been craving a meal here. So how did my meal go? Here is my review of the restaurant. The place is very pricey however the oysters are very good and fresh (I've been told in the documentary that they drive these down fresh everyday from their farm just a tiny north of the SF Bay Area in Marshall, CA)! Really happy this place serves different species of oysters and it was a delight to taste them all. You can taste the difference and the waters they come from and it was really delicious. These are way better than the oysters I get in the Chinese supermarket. You can really taste the freshness of the shellfish. On the other hand I also ordered a Oyster Po' Boy with chips which I feel is just average and that it was grossly overpriced. While this restaurant is on the more expensive side, I still highly recommend you eat at this restaurant at least once to try out on a fancy occasion. I recommend a weekday as it is crowded on weekends and on holidays. I know this because one time my friend and I wanted to eat here, but then we saw a super long line outside... I did eat dinner sort of early on this day (so I didn't have to wait in line) because I got very hungry after walking about 8 miles for this photo trip, but right after I finished eating, I noticed a line starting to form fast outside. There will generally be a wait at this place, so please keep that in mind and plan accordingly! :)
