It's time to choose a Dish of the Month for SF Bay Area for July 2013. This marks the 1 year anniversary of the project. Not bad!
The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for SF Bay Area and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible, reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.
The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (minestrone soup, xiao long bao) but might also be more of a dish category (stuffed pasta dishes, Asian fried chicken). It's up to the users, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best versions! In the past, the dish of the month inspired a few Chowdowns so people could try the dish together....hopefully this tradition can continue!
This is the nomination thread for July 2013…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on June 28), it will be one vote per user.
To nominate a dish, post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. You can also second nominations made by others by using the recommend button. I will start out by nominating some of the runners-up from last month. This thread will be open until June 28th.
Let the nominations begin!
