My SO and I both grew up in CA, but have spent most of our adult lives to date (happily) in NY.
Coming into for a week of work, though, so it's now time to see if SF might work out for us as a city to live in and as a city to EAT in!
What 2 dinner and 2 lunches are absolutely emblematic of SF - and that you'd recommend to showcase the best of SF dining? I imagine greenmarket's the thing SF excels at, but we'll willingly to do any budget, any food.
- Food: No Chinese (I grew up in LA, 'nuff said) or Japanese (NY does it well)
- Budget: Top $ restaurants are less of a priority, if only because we want to see what we would normally go out to eat, but if the meal's worth it, we'll 100% go for it.
- Location: Staying in the Mission (but willing to travel)
We just want to be blown away by SF's food scene. Where would you recommend?
My list so far starts with Roli-Roti, so any recommendations would be MUCH appreciated!
