Do you create unique foods?

Intergalactic foodies

stomach Mar 6, 2012 01:54 PM

On a foggy night space aliens arrive at your doorstep. They are short, green and have huge stomachs. Using a universal translator, the space aliens explain that they have just arrived at Earth and they are ignorant to its riches. The space aliens also explain that they experience new worlds primarily by tasting them. Being utterly possessed by their perceptions of flavors, the space aliens are frantic as they beg you for guidance.

If you were the ambassador of San Francisco, what three quintessential Bay Area meals, snacks, food items, or food experiences would you recommend to these intergalactic foodies? They are not keen on learning your subjective favorites. Rather, they would like to sample foods that you think are both excellent and representative of the very unique culture that exists below the fog.

            Why is it always foggy when space aliens arrive? Anyway, send 'em out for abalone, dungeness crab, and give them a meyer lemon tree. Oh, and a case of Anchor Steam.

              they always visit in the Summer time, wearing shorts, and have no layering options.
