Must have's in San Francisco...not the usual though..
I've been doing my research and have come across the countless other must have's in san fran....anything else that may be a bit unmentioned or under the radar? Maybe a personal favorite?
We'll be there the day before Thanksgiving and going home Sunday morning. Just looking for food advice (or any advice really) that will make the time spent there more enjoyable. Appreciate it!
Can you be more specific? What kind of "must have's" are you looking for? It might help to have some kind of idea of what you've already found?
Where do you live? Dim sum's a must for most visitors but not if you're coming from, say, Vancouver.
People are so food-obsessed here that there's not much under the radar, but if I'd been away for a while some of the dishes at the top of my list would be:
Tea leaf salad at Burmese Kitchen.
Pasta with bottarga and any lamb dish at La Ciccia.
Ahmohk at Angkor Borei.
Taco al pastor at Taqueria San Jose.
Pork leg stew, bamboo shoots, and fish paste fried rice at Thai House Express.
The "Classic" at Little Star Pizza.
Almost anything at Lers Ros, Jai Yun, Poc-Chuc.

re: Robert Lauriston
Sorry, I should have been more specific..
I'm coming from San Diego. Actually, you're probably right...scratch that under the radar talk.
Things I really like and must have. Overall, I'd like to keep most meals relatively cheap say 25-30 per person.
-Sushi - hopefully staying under 75 a person for a decent omakase. Any place that has deals on rolls would be appreciated also.
-Dim Sum - ya know, I've never really Dim Sum but would LOVE to start with the best SF has to offer.
-Seafood - I'm a seafood fanatic. Any great seafood places...from the hole in the wall on up. Dungeness crab is good. Any quick shops to get some seafood soups, etc.
-Chinese - simply can't get good chinese in san diego and I need something to remind me of the good old days back in NYC. wheres the best most authentic stuff?
-Any other specialities San Francisco may have to offer.
Flushing Chinese vs SF
Best Chinese, not dim sum
Mochica for tiraditos and other Peruvian specialties.
Poc-Chuc for Yucatecan.
