Hello, SF Hounds! Maine Hound headed your way for the first time!
What are the food specialties that San Francisco does best, and shouldn't be missed... along the lines of the cheese-steak in Philly? I know that sourdough is a classic, and I understand that the mission burrito has it's origins there. What other dishes/cuisines really should not be missed on a trip to San Francisco? (Feel free to add your favorite location for a prime example of said dish/cuisine!)
I've searched the boards, and I'm sure this post is out there, but I haven't found it. Please feel free to direct me to previous threads if appropriate.
