Food & Drink

After the Ride: Local Favorites

Noe Valley Bakery Their crusty white loaf is hands-down the best bread available anywhere in SF...
Lucca Ravioli Company This windowless shop is the secret trove of mozzarella, pasta, pesto and spices that your imaginary Sicilian grandmother left for you in her will
Lolinda everything is amazing, but definitely don't miss the croquetas and the bone marrow.
Beretta If you like Bon Iver, pizza and hipster chicks, you've found a home.
Arizmendi Bakery Panaderia & Pizzeria One of the best slices in the city for only $2.50
Papalote Mexican Grill Have some good ol' chips and salsa...it's #46 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.
Taqueria El Farolito 7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the super carne asada burrito is delicious. Yum!
Mr. Pollo Let the chef Manny make a tasting menu for you, everything is delicious.
Prubechu Go for the chef's choice tasting menu but add from the ala carte menu so you can try the other dishes that might not be included. It might end up being a lot of food but it's worth the adventure!
Tahini The service is outstanding,and you can tell he loves his place. So friendly! The chicken kebab plate is so delicious. Loved it!! Best babaganoush and falafels I've EVER had. Healthy cooked food.
La Taqueria Squirt the green shit on every bite
Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen Take a matzoh brei breather at this post-ironic Jewish deli where they brine their own pastrami and the walls are papered with fading Yiddish newsprint.
Gialina Pizzeria Atomica is our constant favorite, but we had the Brussels sprout one tonight and holy moly. Also, check this dessert heaven. Most delicious mascarpone!
PizzaHacker Jeff Krupman's pizza popup now has a brick and mortar space, with lots of room at communal picnic tables and pies topped with freshly stretched mozzarella.
Roxie Food Center This quality sandwich joint, hidden in a liquor store, is known for their Dutch Crunch. Their sandwiches are huge and hearty, making it a perfect place to gorge.
Cafe St. Jorge Cafe St Jorge is my new favorite neighborhood cafe & wifi work-from-home spot! Delicious chia bowl, avocado toast, Portugese egg tarts & stumptown coffee!
Dynamo Donut & Coffee Munched on maple glazed bacon donuts. Delish!
Balompie Cafe #3 Amazing papusas! Amazing staff. Jackie you're the best!
Taquerias El Farolito Have a burrito...it's #78 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.
