SF Dish of the Month (Oct 2012) - Nominations

It's time to choose a Dish of the Month for SF Bay Area for October 2012

The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for SF Bay Area and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible, reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.

The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (minestrone soup, xiao long bao) but might also be more of a dish category (stuffed pasta dishes, Asian fried chicken). It's up to the users on this board, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best versions!

I'm thinking that the criteria for choosing a dish should be that it's something readily available, but not too generic (i.e. pizza and tacos are perhaps too broad) and also affordable for most people (i.e. average cost of the single dish is less than $12)

This is the nomination thread for October 2012…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on September 28), it will be one vote per user.

To nominate a dish, post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until September 28th.

Let the nominations begin!

      You've got to stop suggesting good ideas if you want ramen to make it to the top :-)

        Ramen just means a type of Japanese noodle. Would be good to be more specific in the style of prep.

          I was just in Mexico for a week and really liked the pozole there, so finding good options for it here would be exciting. So I think that'd be my current vote as of now....but looking forward to seeing more nominations!
