The Cliff House is a SF landmark. It's at Ocean Beach, 1090 Point Lobos Avenue. The view alone is worth a visit. While you are there, check out the ruins of the Sutro Baths, the old arcade and the Camera Obscura, which is really cool!


And across the Great Highway is the Beach Chalet, where you can also get food, and they now have a brew pub in there with their own label.

We love Chinese food, but lately we've found the better quality food is at Thai or Vietnamese restaurants.

OK I love that someone started this thread. I am from CT and was in SF in June after a 18 year hiatus (Shoreline '93). Pork Store was then and is still now a great breakfast spot in the Haight. You won't need to eat again for the rest of the day! In June I went to P & G Lounge in Chinatown and had the highly recomnmended Salt & Pepper Crab which was incredible.

Went to Kubuto Sushi which was OK but not the top fun spot it was in 1993 (moved also). Had really great sushi in June at Ebisu over towards Golden Gate Park.

Had great coffee/espresso drinks at Ritual Coffee in the Mission and Tartin Bakery nearby was amazing.

Would love others to post more recommendations as I am coming in for Furthur this week and staying in town for a few days after! Also looking for great walks, hikes, or runs within an hour or two of SF. Thanks in advance.

I hear Mission Chinese is very good. Anyone been there?

Chinese Food?

Italian Food?

Burgers? (Sorry Vegetarians)

Thanks,

Alan

Because the Chinese (all the various regions and foods) tend to depend on oil and fat more as a primary flavoring than the Vietnamese and Thai. I've always thought -besides the proliferation- that is why Americans tend to like Chinese a lot more than the other Asian cuisines. It's closer to eating a greasy hamburger than the others.

For a close hike you can't do better than Tilden Park in the Berkeley Hills, or a trip to Point Reyes in Marin. Better yet, do both!

I second that emotion for Tommy's. I used to go there regularly for a late night pesto/pasta meal and was never disappointed. As far as the Tonga, agreed that it is a unique experience. Be careful if you go there in an altered state, however, the cheesy band floating in on the boat may send you over the deep end!!!

Italian Food?

As mentioned, but I didn't specify it being Italian, the Stinking Rose in North Beach. When you're seated they bring a bowl of roasted garlic and bread. Food is killer.
