1 day in San Francisco- food must haves
Eating my way through San Fran this Monday,
I'd like to sample as much as I can in one day with an emphasis on inexpensive food that ral San Fran folks like to eat. Recommendations/specific eateries are appreciated. I have abitmore of a budget for dinner but would like to keep it on the cheap in the daytime. A few ideas:
thanks so much!
I am staying in union sq but am willing to travel all over the city.
burritos: my favorite (although you can get them cheaper and larger elsewhere) is La Taqueria at 25th and Mission
dim sum: Koi Palace (in Daly City)
seafood: Ame for the sashimi and the sake marinated black cod
How are you getting around? If you only have one day, then the difficulty in getting to a place, or from place to place, is an important factor.
If you want a wide selection to "sample" from and don't need a sit-down place, I'd recommend the Ferry Building. Yes, it's super-duper touristy, but you know what? There's a reason for it. If nothing ELSE, you need to hit up Acme Bread there--it's also very affordable (I walked 1 hour and ~2 miles out of my way at 8 AM yesterday for bread.)
