Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse! That place is absolutly amazing.  My and my Fiance go there for our bdays (about 2 weeks apart so we just go once) and it is worth it.  All the sides are a la carte and there is plenty to share.  The steaks don’t need anything on them at all, they are perfect. 

Funny story.. Last time we went there we took some freinds and one asked for some sauce for his steak.  The waiter looked at him like he was crazy and politly asked if he had eaten there before, our friend hadn’t.  The waitor proceeded to look an me and my Fiance and said he would bring it out only after our friend tried his steak, with a big goodfy grin.  We were both giggling uncontrolably and our friend was like “what, i cant eat it plain”.  Well the steaks came out, the waiter waited for him to take a bite.  Once he did the waited said “you still need that sauce sir?” and our frind turned bright red and just nodded no.

It was halarious.  The seasoning on the steaks are amazing.  Our freind is one of the most picky ppl we know when it comes to food and even he was impressed.

My favorite cheap eats is Hai Ky Mi Gia. My favorite non-cheap eats is Delfina. Last time I was there, everything in Delfina was kick-ass.

If you’re craving Greek, try Kokkari in SF… I think about it a lot! Pricey, but not over the top.

Dopo in Oakland has really awesome pizza, pasta. Mmm. Love it like I love Delfina, but it’s easier to get into (doesnt take reservations but we just go there really late… they’re open decently late)

Restaurant we frequent most is O Chame in Berkeley. Homemade Udon and Soba… my favorite is smoked trout Udon. Pricey for noodles, but not pricey in general.

In SF I would eat at A16 every day for at least a couple of months. Yummy! On the days they were closed, I could do Yank Sing.

I always recommend Zadin in the Castro for Vietnamese.

I love Boulevard and Jardinier for fancy food, but haven’t had the opportunity/means to take advantage of something like that in a long time.

PAPALOTE in the mission is AMAZING!!! It’s a healthy taq – corner of 24th and Valencia.  I also love Dosa on Valencia and like 22nd – very reasonably priced and hip indian food.  For fun girls nights out: to Lime on the Castro-end of Market – small plates and cocktails.  My favorite higher-end restaurant is Firefly in Noe Valley – very delicious yet has a casual down to earth vibe.  We went there to celebrate our engagement!  So many more … makes me miss SF! (I moved 3 years ago, but still visit often).

Sushi Bistro is awesome in the richmond district. They got so much hype and so much business that they had to expand a few doors over! LOVE IT!

Gary Danko is definitely a favorite and so is Michael Minna. DROOOL!

The House is always a favorite for me! Love their Pomegranente Pork Chops and must get their Mango Tapioca Pudding dessert. DROOOOL.

You gotta get a sandwich from Little Saigon on Larkin Street? That shiet is the bomb. My favorite is the Fancy Pork, but Combination, Tofu, or even Siu Mai (Meatball) is drooltastic!

Circa is yummy – I drool over their Tomato bisque.

Za Pizza in Nob Hill is super thin, super tasty pizza.


Ice Cream at Bi Rite Creamery!

I second Gary Danko!  Okay, so I never ate there because it’s way out of my budget, but I hear about this place from so many people.  Plus, one of my friends used to work there, and he always talked positively about the food and the chef!  He recommended it definitely as a great celebratory place, so I’m waiting for a special occassion.
