The only thread similar to this I found in the search was in reference to a New Yorker.
But if you're coming up north from LA, what are some dishes that you absolutely should not miss (ideally that you just can't get down south)?
The dishes could be from any level of restaurant.
I was looking at an article about SF's best burritos, and came across, for example, plantain burritos. We seem to have a serious lack of such wonderful things in LA somehow.
I'm curious what other dishes like that may be lurking beneath the surface of the SF dining world.
But at the same time, there are also other dishes, for example, the porchetta at Cotogna, that have garnered acclaim for being their respective best-of versions, so if anyone would be interested in sharing more of those (Favorite pasta at SPQR? The best cut of meat at Incanto? Some hidden gem you might easily overlook at Bar Tartine?)
If there's already a thread full of these that I missed somehow, I'll happily take the link.
