Roam SF:

      This past Saturday I was lucky enough to enjoy an indulgent afternoon of consignment shopping and a delicious lunch in San Francisco with my boyfriend, Shahin. After walking out of Filmore & 5th (a fantastic sister store to Crossroads Trading  that specializes in designer labels and quality fabrics with budget friendly price tags), we spotted Roam and hungrily walked right in. We got lucky with this casual dining run in for sure! I can never resist a delectable cheeseburger and Roam's "build your own burger" option was high on my priority list once the fragrance from the kitchen hit me. I ordered a swiss cheese burger with the works: spicy mayo, ketchup, jalapeno relish, butter lettuce, a sliver of red onion, bacon and (for the ultimate grand flourish) truffled parmesan cheese fries! You can witness my excitement while devouring this meal by visiting this post from a couple days ago.  A cold IPA and a side order of french fries finished off this all american classic quite nicely as well. The atmosphere is cozy and casual, the food is amazing, the beer is ice cold, but the best part about this killer lunch spot? Roam actually cares about using the tastiest ingredients and that means preparing their meals with sustainable produce and meats including 100% grass-fed beef, free range poultry, and organic veggie burgers. And that is something that I am always happy to recognize in the food industry! You can view more of Roam's green practices by clicking here. But if you are more interested in food porn, continue on:


None of these perfectly blonde french fries got left behind, they were so good!
Potato tender on the inside, crisp on the outside!

*Note to self: don't have a beer with lunch and then go shopping.

(Some girls get a manicure before they go wine tasting but I like
 to make sure my nails look great right before a french fry endeavor.
Lately I have been wearing Chanel's Rose Exuberance) 

     I love burger joints that allow you to customize like Roam does. What are your favorite condiments and toppings? 


*Social Tip: Whenever I am amongst new people and don't really know what to talk about, I always end up asking what would be on their perfect burger! It always breaks the ice and gets conversation going!


  1. I don't eat red meat, but that burger looks tasty!

  2. I swear I can smell those fries right now haha
    Whenever I go to a build your own burger place, I always put a fried egg on top! lol
