Food gift to take to SF
Am staying with a hardcore foodie friend in SF and wanted to bring him something from NYC that he can't find in SF. Was thinking about cookies from Momofuku Milk bar but woul dlove to hear other ideas. Needs to be carry-able on the plane!
I'm from SF. Though I moved out here 10 years ago, I still visit often enough.
This is a tough problem, because you need something that basically ships well, but things that ship well tend to be available there.
I'm not the biggest bagel person, but what passes for a bagel in my hometown is typically more akin to a dinner roll with a hole in it. So that might be an idea.
BTW, last time I visited there I tried to bring back some Mission burritos with me. Didn't work. I knew it was a longshot, but I had to try.
i recently moved from the east coast to sf, and i miss real italian food.
maybe pick up some chocolate from kee's and bring your friend some juicy twist packs! (at least hat's what i would want)
i once froze 2 chicken fried steaks from hoovers and 2lbs of extra moist brisket from rudy's in austin, tx, wrapped several times in saran wrap and foil, then picked up 1lb of brisket from the county line at the airport to bring back to boston. my sister is a very lucky girl.
