101 Cookbooks - Healthy Recipe Journal

Here's a stab at it. This is by no means a comprehensive list of all the great places in this city - it's more of a brainstorm of places I find myself often. Many I can walk to from where I live, others take more effort - a hop on a train, or a trip across town via car. It's clear I know some neighborhoods better than others. I thought this list would be most useful if organized (very roughly) by neighborhood.

I'll do my best to update this, and if you're coming to San Francisco I hope you enjoy your stay here.updated 3/28/12.

Normally I answer, “Oh, I only took small bites” or “I burned it all off by walking a lot.” But the truth is, I did explode after our week, last week, in San Francisco. My hands are typing this, but my face is across the room, and you don’t want to know where my lower half is. But let me tell you, friends, it was totally worth it. Why were we in San Francisco? Which is why, on Wednesday, when we were on the way to LAX, getting ready to fly to Oakland where a car was waiting to whisk us off to Pixar, it was almost a Greek tragedy when Delta called to say our flight was canceled.

As we arrived, the Pixar people were finishing up watching the movie and then Craig joined Bill and Kristen on stage for a Q&A conducted by Jonas Rivera who produced Up. Needless to say, it was a great day. And the chocolate pot de creme for dessert: Vegan Guide to San Francisco.

The Best Vegetarian Restaurants in San Francisco

I’ve said that previously about Chiang Mai in Thailand which certainly is an excellent budget option, but on our third visit to San Francisco in July we were reminded what a gourmet heaven it is. It’s an amazing place for anyone to eat. The city has easy access to quality, locally grown, organic ingredients. Its food scene is diverse with cultures from all over the world represented. And it has a population who loves to eat, and who cares about the quality of the ingredients they are consuming. In San Francisco you could eat at a different vegan restaurant every night for weeks before exhausting them all.
