I think I hate San Francisco. - Page 167

I ate at Suppenkuche once. I don't like German food, but I understand the urge to invade France after eating it.

Didn't know this was a thing.

One thing to do right next to Fishermans Wharf is the Buena Vista Cafe for an Irish coffee. Skip the whole wharf, it really is tacky, and head to the Ferry Building for Hog Island oysters while watching the boats come and go.

On one level this is already over. Gummit set the fee at $1 per stop per use. Some folks are still complaining that if your carpool did the same you'd be ticketed $271 - but first, you'd have to get caught.

Good Catch. The USS Pampanito Museum and Musee Mechanique are also worth seeing. If you visit the latter, watch Stroszek on Netflix the night before, and bring a live chicken.

 

As for eating: Pat's Cafe and Mo's in North Beach are great for breakfast. Clement Street is a great walk with great places to eat, from the Garlic Rolls at Village Pizzeria to the pork belly at Burma Superstar to Chicken & Waffles at Hard Knox. 

 

I have no idea what "Mission Mexican Food" is. There are some good Central American places however, especially Haltun.

The only good thing about Fisherman's Wharf is the sea lions, if you like that sort of thing.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions! If nothing else, I look forward to a few good meals, weather that's a bit warmer and some time with the gf.

"The city started charging for Sunday street parking last January, something officials expected would bring in $1.7 million annually for cash-strapped Muni.

The take has been a lot better than that - closer to $6 million, with nearly half coming from parking tickets, which can run as high as $72."
