Favorite SF Items

Rochelle McCune | Feb 19, 200201:29 PM

There are a lot of posts about favored (or not) restaurants. But I've been noodling with the idea of my favorite dishes/foodstuffs/items at various locations in San Francisco. You know, those things you order every time you go someplace, even if its just to take home for later (i.e. the second you get in the door). This is the beginning of my list.....

Slightly Less Obvious
St. Francis Soda Fountain - excellent English Toffee
Puerto Alegre - yummy green Chilaquiles, their light hand with the sauce allows the chips to stay crunchy (brunch item)
Suppenkuche - Herbed Potatoes w/ Quark - Their quark is stellar, just the right blend of sweet/tart. Where do they get it? (brunch item)
Citizen Cake - they serve the best bacon I've ever had, Nueske's, and they cook it just right. And I hear they do nice desserts too! :-)
Stella Dora - pine nut cookies (I know their cakes are the bomb, but I love the sweet chewiness of their cookies)
Kennedy's Irish Pub - love their $2 Guiness special & the fact that they have a decent Indian restaurant in the middle of the bar.

Really Obvious
Memphis Minnies - brisket
Rosamunde - burger
Mitchell's Ice Cream - anything
Liguria - Foccaccia
Tommy's Mexican - Margaritas!

What are yours?
