After a quick nap, it was lunch time! The pub lunch is a special feature so obviously we couldn't miss it! We both wanted fish and chips, but I persuaded my mom to order another dish so we had more variation to share. She opted for Ploughman's lunch- farmer's ham, english cheddar cheese, date, Branston pickle, chutney and crusty bread. Even though the idea of a completely cold lunch did not entice me, everything was actually delicious! Even the cold bread was really good!
I had fish and chips- deep fried battered cod fillet with chips, mushy peas, tartar sauce and malt vinegar. The fish was tender, flaky and crispy, and those fries were absolutely addictive! I normally hate peas, but the mushy peas here were strangely delicious! My mom and I almost finished both plates, despite having had a huge breakfast. The pub lunch was undoubtedly miles better than the sit-down lunch we had on the first day.
We took another nap after lunch because the ship was rocking a lot. I seriously don't know how I can sleep so much! Finally, after a 5 hour delay, we arrived at San Francisco. We all came out to the deck when the ship passed under the Golden Gate Bridge.
We went with the super touristy Boudin Bakery because it was too cold to venture out to anywhere else. Personally, I didn't think there was anything special about this clam chowder. But at least it warmed us up.
My dessert was also pretty terrible. I think it was supposed to be a clementine mille-feuille, but the flavours were very artificial. In addition, it was sickeningly sweet. In the end, we went to the buffet to grab some fruits instead.
