Hi there!

We will be in SF for 5 days the week after next and are hoping to get some suggestions on the best and not over the top expensive places to eat. this is our third trip to SF so we have some old faves we will return to and we have loked at the past topics for new ideas but wanted some more specific ideas...hoping someone can help us out. We are staying on Bush Street near union Square but dont mind taking transit to areas howver we cant get out to the suburbs. In particular we are looking for:

- the best place to get our dearly loved Mission burrito.
- a good sit down place for Mexican (not tex mex!)
-an over the top dessert place 9we always go and have a 'meal" of cake) looking for "meal" size portions- not sure if citizen cake is worth it?
- good and cheap dim sum in Chinatown
- good Italian place in North Beach thats not too touristy
-cheap Vitenamese

Any other suggestions for really good/unique/ can't be missed places are greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much,
Meghan in Vancouver
