7x7 2013 Big Eats List, SF - 100 Things to eat before you die

What are hounds thought on 7x7 2013 Big Eats List SF - 100 things to eat before you die?

Here's the list:

  1. Marcia Gagliardi ("the Tablehopper") edited the list this year and it has 80 new items. The 2012 list only had 33 new items, several from restaurants already on their previous lists. Glad to see they stopped including drinks.

    Some patterns: 2 banh mi, 2 burgers, 3 chicken wings, 5 pizza, 2 xlb, 3 taco, 2 burrito, 2 ramen

    I've eaten close to 1/3 of that list, and I agree with the merit of what I've eaten, with the exception of San Tung Chicken Wings (too gloopy), Pho Ga at Turtle Tower (style of broth too weak for my liking, but I've only had this once), and the Almond Croissant at Thorough Bread. It's a very good dish, but I have no idea why the editors love the pork shoulder fried rice at Sai Jai Thai so much. It has remained on the list for three years in a row.

    It's interesting to see the hot spots from 2009-2013 shift from the Ferry Building, Union Square, and two places on the Wharf to Pac Heights and Nopa.

    1. Thanks for posting this list, lots of good ideas. I was tickled to find I had tried 8 of the 100 - not bad for a visitor :-).
