A family with 2 kids (age 10 & 13) coming to SF and Bay area for 1 week. My trip is divided into 2 parts where we will first stay at the Hyatt Regency Freemont with a rental car to roam around the Bay area including Freemont, Palo Alto, Monterey Bay, Carmel and Suasilito; and the second part at Omni Hotel to tour San Francisco without any rental car. Looking more at kids-friendly comfort food places rather than any expensive or fine dining restaurants on this trip.

I have got plenty of recommendations in SF area but only 2 restaurants outside SF, namely Scoma at Suasalito and The Tap Room at Pebble Beach. Since Freemont will be the first stop, I expect we will experience jet lag, so looking for recommendation on decent early breakfast and late night supper places near the hotel. And also looking for a good Cantonese restaurant near Freemont area as well.

In SF area, I have been recommended as follow. Will appreciate if you can comment or add other recommendations: (prefer restaurants within walking distance or max 15 minutes taxi ride from the hotel)

-Seafood: Swan Oyster Depot;

-Italian: Flour & Water and Caffe Sports (Since I can only pick one, which is better);

-Steak house: Bourbon steak;

-Organic: Outerlands;

- Pizza: Una Pizza Napoletana;

- Southern BBQ: Gorilla BBQ;

-Vietnamese: Crustacean;

-Cantonese: R&G;

-Ice cream: Ghirardelli and Humphry Slocombe;

- Southern BBQ: Gorilla BBQ;

- Breakfast: Boulettes Larder.

- Burger: Prather Ranch Meat.

- Mexican: please recommend your favorite.

- Any MUST EAT place for foodies.

Thanks in advanced.
