San Francisco HELP

SobeChower | Feb 5, 201507:25 PM

Will be in San Francisco for 6 days & 6 nights. I have tried doing research, but there are so many options that it is quite overwhelming to pick and choose.

I am open to all types of food and restaurants, but would like to focus on Asian food because it is very difficult to get good Asian food where I live.

12 meals in SF and I'd probably like 3-4 of them to be Asian. I am thinking Slanted Door, Mission Chinese, Yank Sing, but I could be completely off base? Let me know if I picked the right spots. Would like 1 really great Chinese meal, possibly a Thai or Vietnamese, and definitely Dim Sum.

I would like to do 1 or 2 Mexican meals. It could be a great burrito place for lunch or a casual dinner.

There is a great tapas restaurant that I went to several years ago, but I can't remember the name or the location. It may have been in the mission district, but who knows.

I have a reservation at NOPA. Do you recommend anything else for this California cuisine?

The rest of the meals can just whatever is good. Italian, French, etc..

My wife isn't the most adventurous eater, but she can typically find something to eat on most menus. Good food is the most important, but we like fun places with a lively atmosphere.

Where should we eat at the Ferry building farmer's market.

Is the Bay area Top 100 a good list to go off of?

Below is a list that I put together that I've heard good things about. Feel free to comment:

- Boulevard
- The Ramen Bar (101 California Street) new ramen hotspot (Ramen is BIG now!) by famous renowned Chef Michael Mina

- Perbacco/ Barbacco

- Marlowe -

-Gotts Roadside
- Slanted Door
- Coqueta
- Hog Island Oysters in Ferry Building
- Hard Wate
-Rosa Mexicana

- Tosca Cafe

- Flour + Water
- Bar Tartine

- Jane on Fillmore
- Tipsy Pig (2231 Chestnut St) Great gastropub with a nice back patio!
- Tacolicious good selection of tacos, you can order a bunch of small ones and get an assortment

Where do I need to reserve now??
