Self-confessed novice foodies, we are "youngish" first-time visitors to San Francisco. Hailing from New Zealand, currently living in Sydney, we will shortly be vacationing in the US, before moving to Singapore next month. We have 3.75 days (Fri afternoon - Tues morning, so at least 11 meals plus snacks!) to explore San Francisco's food scene. We pretty much eat anything and would love to experiment with lots of cuisines, especially aren't as readily available here in the Southern hemisphere e.g. Mexican. Cheap and cheerful is usually our modus operandi although happy to splash out for an unforgettable meal or degustation.
My research on amazing SF food spots (as well as research for eateries in Chicago, NY, and Vegas) is starting to overwhelm me so thought I'd just go to locals for advice. There is nothing more upsetting to me than paying money for a bad meal in a place where good food is plentiful!
Staying near Union Square, and will be availing of public transport, bicycles, and lots of walking to try and combat the waist line effects of our gluttony.
I welcome all food ideas and itineraries - breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Of course we want to spend some time on touristy stuff too, but we will organise our tourist itinerary around our food one!!
Thanks in advance!
