Recommendations for eating in San Francisco (City only)?

Baxterita | Sep 7, 2006 10:47 PM

Hello fellow chowhounds. Hubby and I are heading to San Francisco at the end of September for a few days and we are looking for Chowhound recommendations. We like ethnic mom and pop places, microbreweries, and also something very "San Francisco." I lived there for a year out of college so I do have some familiarity with it.

Unfortunately, we will be staying at Fisherman's Wharf, so some place within walking distance (Chinatown/North Beach) or accessible by MUNI would be great. We will have a car since we are roadtripping to SF, but I prefer not to navigate the hills while I'm there.

Anyways, I'm looking for a few decent places to eat. I'm really NOT interested in a place like French Laundry or Fleur de Lys. Just good food at semi-reasonable prices. I don't want Stinking Rose, for example. I think I've eaten at LuLu and Zuni Cafe and that was just okay.

Here's my list so far-

-Isobune Sushi (floating sushi boats) at one of the malls in Japantown for a light lunch. (Not the highest quality, but decent and Hubby will love it.)
- Seafood sandwich from one of the carts at Fisherman's Wharf. (Again, Hubby will love it.)
- Swan Oyster Depot

Are there any good microbreweries in San Francisco? Irish pub/British pub? We are also looking for a good Thai place. What should we "not miss?"

Please help, I really don't want to eat at Alito's, hee hee!
