Asian Art Museum cafe, Gyro King, Gelateria Naia, SF report (w/ pics)

Went to the Asian Art Museum for their 40th Anniversary, it was free this past weekend. Next free day is Tues 7/4/06 open (first Tues of the month it's free). Their cafe looks great, but didn't eat there. Just noticed they serve Mariage Freres Iced Tea, and they had Green Tea Mints by the register. Anyone eat there recently?

Had lunch instead at Gyro King, 25 Grove St, San Francisco, 94102. I was expecting too much and was disappointed. I couldn't decide between the lamb/beef or chicken gyro so the guy mentioned they had a combination gyro $6.95 I think. I got that. It was huge, served on the lavash bread even though I was expecting a pita bread. Meat was kinda dry, wish there was more sauce, took half back for dinner.

Got 2 domas which was $2.00, too expensive, just ok. Total $8.95. They take credit card but paid cash anyways. Free help yourself water available.

Just ok food, nothing special here. Close to Civic Center Bart.

Passed by the Civic Center Farmer's Market on Sun-didn't realize until Windy's post about the $1 strawberries after 1pm. I should have asked. Oh well. Looked good, didn't see them offer any samples so just took some pics.

Trying to burn some calories and save money walked to Gelateria Naia, 520 Columbus Ave, SF. It's recently open, and was packed with North Beach Festival goers. I got cantaloupe and young Thai coconut in a small cup $3.50. Just ok, I'd get chocolate flavors next time. One unisex bathroom available, cash only.

North Beach Festival got to sample some sparkling juice didn't catch name-pretty good. Apple and a berry flavor. Also, got to sample Blisscotti: two biscotti with one side dipped in chocolate and vanilla ice cream in the middle. It was pretty good, but I was full so hard to tell.
