Mission or nearby this weekend - creative, fresh, filling and inexpensive
I'm in from Seattle this weekend for a blues dancing event. All our classes and dances are in the Mission area.
I've spent very little time in the Bay Area and am looking for places I shouldn't miss in the Mission District or easy/quick to get to from here with no car. Mexican places with homemade tortillas? Anything special to San Francisco? Vegetarian food?
Also looking for somewhere good I could theoretically go with a big group of hungry dancers for one of the meals, in case things work out that way.
And - one more question - I remember a chocolate shop in the Castro that sold about 3-4 flavors of ice cream or gelato and had amazing chocolate and raspberry. What is this place and is it still there? Maybe on the same block as a Different Light Bookstore?
