Just got back from a week long visit to SF and wanted to post a bit about some of the chowing I did. I wasn't very adventurous as there is only so much room in my stomach and I wanted to hit my fave's. Here goes:

Mario's Bohemian Cigar Store- They still turn out a great Meatball Sandwich on Liguria Bakery Foccaccia. Love the pepporoncini on the side. The Coffee in North Beach and SF in general is a welcome treat to New York City's derth of good joe.

Yank Sing - I love their Dim Sum and although expensive, its fresh and tasty. Had some amazing Lobster dumplings. and they came around with Peking duck served with scallions, a small steamed soft bun and a sauce to make your own Duck Bun. Deep Fried Tofu Cakes with Seaweed were good as well.

Pancho Villa's- I've seen the postings about the great burrito hunt going on the SF board and I always gravitate to this place. Had some tasty Al Pastor taco's. Still strong. Wish they would open up this place in NYC!

Fog City Dinner - They've changed the menu a bit and I'm sure for the better. My brother had the Pork Chop with the Cornmeal Pudding on the side. Well Prepared with a noce sauce. The Halibut needs some work, served with a beet risotto. Wonder what other thoughts are on this place.

Sam Wo's (2am)- Had to have the Cold Noodle Roll. Was drinking at Li Po and the Buddha Bar a couple of classic Chinatown Bars. Still the best thing you can buy for $2.50 in SF

In/Out Burger (Fisherman's Wharf)- Have to throw this in as I can't believe they finally opened one up in SF. a cheap grease fix.

We hit a couple of other spots but can't remember them due to Jet Lag. Still a great chowtown!
