San Francisco Recommendations
Okay guys. As a surprise Christmas present my siblings and I are getting together to buy my parents a trip to San Francisco in May. (We think this is the first vacation they will take together since I was born nearly 26 years ago now...)
Anyway! I need some food recommendations. We're sending them for around 3-5 days so the gauntlet of food ranges from the cheap to probably one nice dinner is needed. My dad is renowned for his baking skills - specifically his sourdough breads so of course a trip to the city of origin of his beloved bread dough is in order. As for my mom, she has this almost irrational desire to visit "a chinatown" (she's always lived in rural areas ^^;).
They're both pretty adventuresome eaters for the area they're from - total meat and potatoes country. But they'll both probably draw the line on anything of the raw (sushi), bizarre, or "froo-froo" gastronomes.
They'll be staying down in the touristy zone near Pier 39 and all the sight seeing goodies, so I'd like to be able to generate a list of things for my presentation that could help steer them away from the mundane into the tasty zone.
