Hey Bloomberg, are you making fun of San Francisco?

In the context of a review of one of my favorite restaurants (I had my birthday dinner there last year), Bloomberg.com's John Liu had this throwaway comment:

"I personally consider roast fatty pork to be the pinnacle of Shanghai cuisine. It is to this city what the cheese steak sandwich is to Philadelphia or Rice-A-Roni to San Francisco. The incarnation on offer at Jesse’s is the best I’ve had"

      I agree, sounds like this poor sod doesn't realize that Rice-a-Roni is only the SF treat in its own ads.
