LA Chowhounder in SF for weekend

Ok, sorry if this offends some, but I DID do some searches, but I thought I might get better results by asking...

I am an LA CHer that will be spending the weekend in SF (Union Sq), and am looking for some (new?) suggestions. I actually moved down to LA from the Bay (Berkeley/Oakland), so I do know alot of places, but mostly Eastbay spots, so it'd be great to hear some SF suggestions.

What I'm looking for:

Burritos (god, how I CRAVE a mission burrito - can't get em down here. I have grown accustomed to LA burritos though). My current all time fav. is San Jose Taqueria, but the Oakland loc.; I think the Mission loc. is a good notch below in quality. I was also introduced to La Taqueria, which I thought was great as well. I love Al Pastor and Carne Asada (but am open to all meats, no seafood), but my SO is jewish and doesn't eat pork. (I may try and make it out to Tacos El Gordo, but TBH, LA has the taco crown wrapped up)

Pizza. I may try and get to Little Star (which I think is just a hair below Zachary's), but I do prefer NY slices. May swing by Cheeseboard or the NY pizza place just off of Shattuck and Center (I believe) before the Cal game (GO BEARS!!!).

Indian. I LOVE Indian. Prefer North Indian, but enjoy both. I know there are some Naan n Curry spots in the City, but if there are some better spots, I'd appreciate it. I used to really like Tandoori Kitchen in Berkeley off of Telegraph, but there was a period where they switched owners and it went downhill, and then the owners came back and it was pretty good, and well.... up and down i guess!

Thai. Don't really know any spots in the City for Thai. Old fav was Cha Am in Berkeley.

Any other "can't miss" spots are appreciated as well. Thanks!
