Coastal Road Trip from LA to SF... Food Ideas help!

Dukbokki | Apr 16, 2013 08:42 AM

Hi, I am planning a road trip from LA to Sonoma/Napa in June. Some of our stops will include Paso Robles-wine tasting, Pfeiffer State Beach-camping, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Francisco/Oakland-2 nights, Sonoma-wine tasting. Do you have any restaurant/food stop destinations that you could recommend? I have only been to SF once so any suggestions in the Bay area would be nice. Some cheap eats would be nice, but a couple of splurges would be okay too. I live in LA and I would say I am an adventurous eater, we like anything from traveling down to San Gabriel Valley for good Szechuan/dim sum, to Korean to taco trucks Thai street food at Night+Market, to more upscale like Ink, Animal, and Osteria Mozza. We like food from all cultural directions. In particular- good cheap oyster/crab shacks are my ideal locales! So let me know if you can help, also any vineyard/tasting rooms suggestions would be much appreciated. We are just looking for maybe three wineries that are close in proximity that are "must-go's" We like wines in the influence of Bordeaux and Rhone. Locations with breathtaking sceneries but without pretense (not too expensive) Thanks!
