San Fran Tips
Tips for San Francisco
-***Brenda’s French Soul Food – AWESOME Cajun/Creole – good for lunch, but does get busy.
-Suppenkuche – good german, another popular spot
-**NOPA – never been, but been on the list a while. well known
-Saigon Sandwich – bahn mi spot for snack
-Swan Oyster Depot – small little place for fresh seafood with a ton of character. lunch.
-Bar Crudo – good $1 oyster HH special (look up times)
Brunch in North Beach:
-***Mama’s in North Beach for brunch. get their early. highly advise getting the monte cristo — best I’ve ever had (nor is it disgusting like some)
-Liguria Bakery- they run out of focaccia around 1ish every day. right across from mama’s. def worth stopping by for a snack
The Mission: spend a weekend afternoon in the Mission. Burrito or something for lunch. Hang in Dolores Park and people watch. Walk Valencia from like 16th to the 20’s.
-***El Farolito – my fav burrito in the mission. when it’s on, it’s the best. when it’s not- it’s still very good.
-Zeitgeist (outdoor bar for drinking) – fun beer garden to soak up rays during the day. 15th and valencia
-For coffee: Four Barrel, Ritual Roasters
-Mission Chinese- non-traditional chinese, awesome! look it up/menu
-Limon Rotisserie – great peruvian food – ask for suggestions – flavors are awesome
-***Foreign Cinema (dinner) – look it up, a cool dining experience.
If you’re feeling a really nice dinner:
-Gary Danko – needs no explanation
-Chez Panisse (in Berkeley)
A lot of these spots aren’t really expensive or fine-dining. They’re just really good. But that’s the beauty of SF. I think you’ll enjoy.
