Food – every day
Taqueria Cancun – SF style burritos. If I could only eat in one place while I was in SF this would be it. I get the super veggie burrito. If I eat in, I get the wet one (mojado). Don’t forget the tamarindo soda.
Tartine – pastries, bread and snacks. Prepare for a long queue. The morning buns and the ham croissants are worth it.
Beretta – pizza and cocktails. Enjoy the rattlesnake.
Gott’s – my favourite burger place in town. In my favorite “mall”. If it’s warm sit in the sun with a burger, a shake and a Black Butte.
Kasa – still my favourite Indian restaurant in town. Get the thali plate and the chai.
Bar Tartine – same owners as the bread place above. Good for brunch.
Burma Superstar – another one that has a long wait. Share plates and try as much as you can.
Z & Y – authentic Szechuan food. If you are up for it the beef tendons and the fish in oil are star dishes.
Food – special, posh
Bars and Beer
Pi – local and friendly with well made pizzas. Many local and craft beers on tap and in the bottle. Ask for a recommendation.
Magnolia – the original SF craft brew pub. Busy. A place to eat and drink.
Toronado – do you like beer? So does everyone here. But they’d rather drink it than chat about it.
Bourbon and Branch – atmospheric, prohibition style bar. Don’t ask for a Mojito here. Reservations required.
Zeitgeist – dive bar. Moody bouncers. Good beer selection and a large beer garden.
