We recently visited San Francisco in celebration of my Dirty Thirty and what a better way to start the festivities than with some delicious food. It was my first time visiting the bay so naturally I want to see what the culinary craze was about. I had been told it was a melting pot but little did I imagine I would find the best of the best ranging from Dim Sum, German fusion, tacos, legendary churros and most importantly wings, we tasted it all! Keep reading for the hook up on the 4 spots you must visit when in San Francisco. 


San Manteo

The owner of this restaurant is one of my favorite chefs, Kenji Alt-Lopez and so I had to make sure I stopped by. The food is a fusion of German and American cuisine. Overall the food was decent. I wish the chicken schnitzel came with the spaetzel and not mashed potatoes, but we ordered the spaetzel on the side anyways and it was delicious. Our fried saurkraut appetizer is worth skipping but the sausage was on point. 

El Gallo Giro 

Mission District

We went around mission district and tried tacos from a few different joints but this place was by far the best tacos I’ve ever had. The meat was cooked perfectly and just enough spice to each taco. Talk about a flashback to Mexico flavors, I am still dreaming about El Gallo Giro. 

Hang Ah Tea Room


We could not come to San Francisco’s Chinatown and not have Dim Sum. During our time in Chinatown we stumbled upon a Hang Ah. This gem was hidden in the smallest alleyway I’ve ever seen. Curiosity got the best of us so we took a peak and turns out it was the first dim sum restaurant in America that opened back in 1920. It is a small and busy restaurant so arrive early or plan for a wait. Because let me tell you the food Gods must have heard we were starved as we lucked out with no line and a table for two awaited our arrival. Everything was delicious especially, their world famous BBQ pork buns- talk about perfection!

San Tung

Sunset District

Everyone who knows me knows my obsession for chicken wings. This restaurant was recommended to @thecitizenlifenow and holy cow, the wings were incredible. Dry-fried and mixed with their homemade spicy chili. We had a wait for this place… it was totally worth it! The wings are a staple in every table but come hungry as there is a vast selection. We ordered a few other items but amongst all and besides the wings, the won ton soup stood out. We give San Tung a 10 out of 10 and highly recommend that you get out there and try it. Don’t snooze and be like us, because you’ll probably have to wait long for a table.
