  1. Much improved this year, instead of the arbitrary price point they have 19 categories and picked their favorites for each.


    1. burgers

      Arinell is junk food, though in a particular way that expatriate New Yorkers sometimes crave.

      Jalisco Cafe in Oakland

      Latin American
      Sol Food is Americanized and bland.

      Burmese Kitchen and not Little Yangon?

      Mediterranean Wraps in Palo Alto

        but there are 2 great things about Sol Food:
        the music and the decor.

      2. yea - i have a bunch of issues with it still (some glaring omissions, some personal preference, choosing to devote entire categories to some asian food, but not others), but it's still far better than past ones. the kronnerburger starting at $11 might have had something to do with its exclusion

        1. hmmm... why in 2013 wouldn't they have an app, or even a google map for this?

          As a quick reference for when searching on Chowhound isn't a convenient option, I made this map of the Chron's 2013 picks.

                  I must thank you again for making that map; I refer to it all the time.
