I just arrived in San Francisco two days ago, and so far I am pretty impressed by food options everywhere (in general). I'm psyched to be here and I'll begin posting soon with all my eating adventures.
I am staying with some friends close to Alamo Square and I'll be using public transportation tomorrow, but I want to do some shopping at a good Asian market (something comparable to Super 88 in Boston for those who are familiar with it). I'm mainly hoping to buy things like tofu and vegetables, some canned goods like veggies and coconut milk and curry paste, maybe also fresh rice noodles or something like that. I was originally thinking I might go to Chinatown, but now I'm thinking it might be better to go to Clement St or to Irving St since it sounds like there are good places here too...I'm not familiar with any stores though, so what store should I go to? If there are any worthwhile snacks at a nearby place (or even in the store), even better.
Thanks a lot!
