Mmmmm, love this list and your commentary!  You know who I wish had a twitter?  Blondie's, and Gordo.  Oh, and the bacon dog cart guy, and all those other food carts in SF.  Thanks for sharing!  I'm snagging a few of these tweeps :)
October 09, 2009
Great idea! Some co-workers and I actually went looking for the bacon dog guy one lunch hour and never found him. Thanks for your note.
October 09, 2009
Whoa, does the bacon dog cart guy ever come out for lunch? I thought that he only ever came out for dinner in the Mish, but I hear that he has a copy cat running around in FiDi, too!

I HEART SF Food....the BEST! I was just in an arguement with two Jersey girls I work with, one of them said that there wasn't any good food in California. After almost choking on my coffee, I asked them if they'd been to Santa Barbara or San Francisco. Then, they can come and tell me there's no good food in Cali. Thanks so much this list so I can give them some pointers when they get up there ;p
October 09, 2009
Maybe they went to Fisherman's Wharf. EEK. The only place there I eat is In-N-Out - love that. If they don't love Nopalita, I don't know what to say.
October 09, 2009
Yep....Every time I go to SF, I stop by the Crab Station and have some clam chowder in a sourdough bowl, so that's the only place I eat down there.That almost convinced my fiance to move up there...I'm still working on him :)

Great list! There are some real gems in here. As a way of saying thanks, you might be interested in this French Laundry review.
