Help me kick off my road trip, SF-->Fort Bragg/Mendocino-->Oregon
I'm taking an 11-day road trip starting in San Fran, and would love to kick off the first few days with great food. Coming from NYC so desperate for excellent, local Mexican, fresh californian, local eats. Mostly budget, can do some splurges for special spots, looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and road-trip take-along snacks.
Thanks in advance!
I suggest Silver's At the Wharf. It doesn't look like much (but it is Fort Bragg and nothing looks like much there). They have great food and I have been craving the mussel steamers for the past year and I don't usualy like seafood. My husband loves their clam chowder.
Mendo Bistro in Fort Bragg is excellent and an absolute bargain compared to what you will find in Mendocino. They won the local cab cake contest so many times that they were banned from entering anymore!

The fish and chips at North Coast brewery is incredible, and the rest of the menu is generally delicious; especially when paired with the freshly brewed beer (sadly, I think the brewery is still closed for tours)
I'd start with a taco at El Tonayense truck at the Best Buy at Division and Harrison.
I'd also stop at Samoa Cookhouse in Arcata. I've never been. It's on my list.
