Ah, San Francisco. The city of winding streets, gorgeous architecture, and the best sourdough bread in the country (IMO). It's been a while since I've been able to explore San Fran, but I always try to stay up to date on the best food and restaurants around so I know where to go the next time I get the chance! If you're looking where to eat in San Francisco, here's to you:
This Italian deli has long been hailed as the best in town thanks to its wide selection of meats, cheeses and pasta. Everything is made to order and the atmosphere will make you feel like you're in a little shop on a street corner in Naples.
TripAdvisor Review: "I've been buying sandwiches from Molinari's Delicatessen for over 35 years. I keep coming back to North Beach and heading straight to Molinari's for my favorite cured beef tongue! I can't imagine going anywhere else. Great people, great selection, great food, and great experience!" -Art W.
Za's small menu and great customer service are just a couple of qualities that bring customers back week after week. The location is pretty small, but if you can snag a seat it's a fun and quirky atmosphere!
TripAdvisor Review: "This tiny little restaurant packs a big punch when it comes to great tasting pizza! There isn’t a lot of space for seating but you can also carry it out. You can buy pizza by the slice or order your own pizza. We sat and watched them make pizza after pizza and it was pretty cool to watch. We really loved the crust which is made with a lot of Parmesan cheese-and perfectly crispy. Really great pizza and friendly quick service. Don’t miss out on this great little place." -karensSouthernIN
Every town has a great All-American Diner and in San Fran, that's Mo's. While it's often praised for its breakfast options, you'll find everything you're looking for in a traditional American diner on the menu for all meals of the day.
TripAdvisor Review: "My son and I had 2 meals at Mo's on a 3 day trip lot SF. We had breakfast which was huge! I had eggs Benedict which was perfect and my son had the breakfast burrito which easily could've been shared. For dinner we had a burger which looked gorgeous and my son said was great and I had a delicious Caesar salad with organic chicken and it was wonderful. Usually chicken in salad is just bland but this had a great flavor. This place is an authentic neighborhood restaurant. It feels like a real diner so it isn't fancy but it is real." -Michael M
The Codmother Fish & Chips
Besides points for name creativity, The Codmother is San Fran's go-to for cheap fish & chips. Don't let the price fool you though- you'll get some quality seafood here at this food truck.
TripAdvisor Review: "Most people visiting Fishermen's Wharf and/or Pier 39 area expect to find good seafood there. Yes, there are plenty of touristy restaurants and food stands serving up below average to fairly good fish and chips, often at a stiff price. Not at the Codmother, though. Here, if you're willing to walk a block off the main strip (i.e., Jefferson Street), you'll find outstanding fish and chips at a reasonable price. What's the catch (no pun intended)? Well, there's no indoor seating or table service (or heat lamps, if it's a cold, which it most likely is given it's San Francisco). But what you get in return is amazingly fresh fish in a beautiful batter, fried to order. The chips are thick cut, also super fresh, and super tasty. The shrimp here are great too. Love this food truck!" -vetism
Super Duper Burgers
Go for the burger, stay for the garlic cheese fries. A favorite of locals and tourists alike, Super Duper Burgers is an upscale version of your favorite fast-food places.
TripAdvisor Review: "Fresh, off the griddle burgers on a toasted bun. What more could you ask for? Much better than in and out burgers. Very good fries to go along with the burger, beer and wine and spiked shakes also. A great quick stop meal." -dabears11
Okay, now go eat at these places and tell me what you think! I'll make sure to stop by on my next trip to San Fran.
