San Francisco



San Francisco, California

The City by the Bay may be the mecca for devotees of California cuisine, if you discount the fact that Chez Panisse, Alice Water’s legendary bastion, is in Berkeley. Never mind. There are enough great restaurants in this town that you couldn’t eat in every one even if you dined out for a year. From the Ferry Terminal at the end of Market Street with its medley of food shops, restaurants, oyster bar, chi chi Saturday farmers’ market (the “real” one is the Allemany Farmers Market), and dynamite water views, to the myriad choices in every neighborhood, you won’t go hungry. Check out the Asian options, too. Chinatown’s dim sum palaces such as Hang Ah Tea House in Chinatown and Yank Sing in the Financial District are winners. Head to the Mission District for the best burritos and tacos at La Taqueria and don’t whine at the line. Your wait will be rewarded with one bite of the pork tacos with guacamole. Fine dining is very fine at Aqua, Boulevard, Gary Danko, Masa’s, Millennium, Plumpjack, and Zuni Cafe.

About me:
I am a San Francisco native child, live in the house I grew up in. I love to cook but have recently had weightloss surgery and am re-learning to cook a more healthy way and live a better, healthier lifestyle. I am single so I do not have "family" issues when I cook to deal with.
