SF Dish of the Month (September 2013) - Voting

Hi all,

Like last month, I'm going to skip the nomination round, and just combine everything into a single discussion. Feel free to include a sales pitch with any nominations, which was very effective last month.

Everyone is welcome to vote once by pressing the recommend button for the dish you'd like to choose. You can change your mind up until the deadline.

I included most of the runners-up from last month....but if there's something else you'd like to be on the ballot, you can write it in, and then others can vote using the recommend button. If you write something in, that will be considered your one vote (and if you want to change your vote after that, just post again to say so)

Voting will be open until August 30th at 4 PM PT.

        1. re: Dave MP

          From a completely selfish perspective, have you considered doing hamburgers? I know there are threads on "best burger" etc but it would be cool to have a really up to date listing with notes!

            1. re: Ruth Lafler

              Would this include any type of meatball, in any kind of dish? My concern with this choice would be that it's too broad....though I could certainly be convinced otherwise :)

              1. re: Ruth Lafler

                I guess this is a very large category, potentially even including hamburgers. Some potential suggestions for narrowing this down next month...

                lion's head meatball soup
                braised lion's head meatballs
                albondigas soup
                meatball banh mi
                spaghetti and meatballs
                sweet and sour meatballs (of any kind)
                swedish meatballs
                meatball and tomato sauce sandwich

                1. re: hyperbowler

                  For Ruth the category may need to be inclusive of Ćevapčići. :) And then the question becomes, are Ćevapčić meatballs, hamburgers, kebaps, sausage, or _____?

                  1. re: Melanie Wong

                    I was thinking more in terms of traditional meatballs (ground meat and some kind of seasonings and binder) in sauce or soup, not grilled ground meat.

                    1. re: Ruth Lafler

                      As you saw, my cevapcici idea went up in smoke. But I have another possible spot on the radar.

                      We had a lot of interest in nominating and voting for September. Let's keep up the momentum and get some fresh, current reports up on hamburgers.

                2. re: Ruth Lafler

                  It will not surprise anyone who knows me to hear that I second, third and fourth the MEATBALLS suggestion: especially since I actually will make it to the bay area in September and promise to report in on some! (if you must narrow it down, personally, I go for albondigas, but could go for the Lion's head soup also.)

                  I know! MEATBALLS IN SOUP!
