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'm 17 years old and I've always loved creating big great dinners for my family. My mother is Vietnamese and so she always made ethnic food, so as soon as I took an interest in cooking I immedietly fell in love with good 'ol meat and potatoes. Don't get me wrong, I love Vietnamese food but I wanted to get tastes of other things as well. I used to live in San Francisco so I took advantage of being able to fulfill my every little craving, however, when I moved to Colusa, CA, a town of 5,000, all I could get was Chinese, Mexican, or fast food, it was horrible, so I turned to making my own meals to cater my need for ethnic and "American" food. So here I am, to get recipes to avoid eating the same thing every day.
