The 20 Bay Area Dishes Eater Readers Crave The Most
1. PPQ Dungeness Island's Crab & Garlic Noodles
You can't just have one. Order the crab, follow with garlic noodles. Swallow. Repeat.
2. Tony’s Pizza Napoletana's Limited Edition Margherita
Ok, readers didn't specify which Tony's pizza they craved most, but it was a resounding favorite. So we'll pick for you: the limited edition margherita, clothed in San Marzano tomatoes and fior di latte mozz.
3. Lers Ros Thai's crispy pork belly
People call this dish a standout and a "must try" on Lers Ros' long menu.
4. Noeteca's Croque Josephine
A spin on the classic Croque, made with ham, soft bread and poached egg.
5. Seven Hills' Raviolo Uovo
A local take on a classic Italian fine dining trick: one huge quivering raviolo begs to be forked, unleashing the spinach, ricotta and barely set egg yolk within.
6. John Campbell's Scone
Made from a traditional Irish recipe, John Campbell's scones are round, light, cakey, and best consumed with a good buttering of clotted cream.
7. Phat Philly's Cheesesteak
Two words: "wit whiz."
8. Brown Sugar Kitchen's Shrimp & Grits
Tanya Holland's rendition come in a deep white bowl, so none of that extra barbecue sauce or creamy grits can escape your spoon's reach.
9. San Tung Chinese Restaurant's Dry Fried Chicken Wings
San Francisco, CA 94122
By now, if you haven't tried San Tung's dry fried chicken wings, there is something seriously wrong with your brain.
10. Yamo's Fish Chowder
San Francisco, CA 94110
This noodle seafood soup sticks with you, and won't let go. One order is easy to split.
11. Udupi Palace's Onion Rava Dosa
A special dosa stuffed with potatoes and onions is flavorful, even without the coconut chutney and sambar that come with it.
12. Grubstake Diner's Rare Cheeseburger
Rare means rare at Grubstake, and most people love this burger after a long night of cocktails and beer.
13. Ino Sushi's Ankimo
San Francisco, CA 94115
The foie gras of the sea, served buttery and fresh every night.
14. Pal's Takeaway's Aunt Malai's Lao Sausage Sandwich
Just look at that sucker: sausage, cucumber-cilantro relish, soy-yuzu mayo, and wild arugula, all forced to share one crusty Acme roll.
15. La Ciccia's Octopus Stew
Another reader favorite among the favorites: whole, tender baby octopus in spicy tomato broth, done the Sardinian way.
16. Kirimachi Tonkotsu Ramen
San Francisco, CA 94133
Readers love this ramen for its deep pork bone flavor, and the use of shredded pork instead of the usual sliced chunks.
17. Taqueria el Buen Sabor's Carnitas
It's all about the carnitas here, in regular and super tacos. One reader digs the sauce too: "Their green salsa in the squeeze bottle is the best. I eat every bite with it ..."
18. Balompié Cafe's Pupusas
Angelic circular masa rounds yield to wicked oozy centers full of meat and cheese.
19. Frisco Fried Chicken's Fried Chicken
San Francisco, CA
Finger-licking, lip-smacking, crispy and succulent—choose your own adjective. Then let the chicken do the talking.
20. Breakfast At Tiffany's "Stella by Starlight"
San Francisco, CA 94134
A neighborhood favorite for 30 years, Breakfast at Tiffany's makes deliriously addictive hashbrowns, like the "Stella by Starlight" with cheddar and jack cheeses, green chile, bacon, tomato and sour cream on top. Good luck with that.
