November 28, 2015

With the ever growing foodie scene in San Francisco, sometimes it’s hard to know which place truly has some good food. While there are many neighborhoods with great restaurants, the Mission District  is a good place to start when looking for a combination of variety and great taste. Here are 7 dishes you’ll want to try out next time you’re in the area.

Mission Cheese

If you’re ready to indulge on delicious snacks with great company and a great environment Mission Cheese is your place. They offer a vast selection of exotic cheeses and charcuterie. You also have your pick of sandwiches, salads, and great desserts. Ordering a Cheese Flight is a good way to start out.

West of Pecos

West of Pecos offers great southwestern flavor. If the longhorn skulls and gigantic rattlesnake skin aren’t enough to impress then make sure you try out their Pork Belly Breakfast Tacos.

Craftsman & Wolves

If you’re in the mood for some great west coast cuisine, Craftsman & Wolves won’t disappoint. Make sure to try out their famous Rebel Within.  It’s made of a soft boiled egg inside of a bacon & cheese muffin.

Having over 350 different types of tequilas is impressive enough. However, if you’re looking for one dish that has a little bit of everything, make sure you try the Beer-and-a-shot Braised Chicken and Cod Taco Duo.
