Hi, I'll be visiting your city next month and I'd appreciate any tips SF chows can offer. I've never been before so I'm not at all familiar with S.F. I'll be staying at a hotel around Lombard/Divisadero. I won't have a car so I'll either be walking or using public transit so the closer to the downtown area, the better.
A couple of other things. I'm on a limited budget so as much as I'd love to try the fine dining places that your city is known for, they're beyond my means. I'm not a wine drinker so the relative quality of the cellar isn't important for me. Let's say around $30 or under for one. I come from a city, Toronto, with a huge Asian community so Asian food, as much as I love it, isn't a novelty to me. Of course if there are Chinese or Asian things that are unique to S.F. I'd love to hear about it. One last thing, I'm not much of a seafood eater, so I'll be taking a pass on that famous aspect of San Franciscan cuisine.
I'm hoping to try things that are unique to the state/area.
I hope I haven't narrowed the choices down too much. Cheers!.
