San Francisco is one of the world’s most popular travel destinations.  It ranks 35th out of the 100 most visited cities worldwide, and for good reason.  Although the Financial District, Union Square, and Fisherman’s Wharf are well-known around the world, San Francisco is also characterized by its numerous streetscapes and cultural neighborhoods.  A good plate of exotic, authentic cuisine is never far away.  French, Thai, Indian—San Francisco has it all.

San Francisco practically invented the term “foodie.”  What you’ll find in the Bay Area when it comes to food is more sustainable, organic and healthy options as well as delicious seasonal dishes.  Stroll downtown to Fleur de Lys for some French-Californian cuisine.  This romantic location is a popular choice for those looking to pop the question.

You may not expect to find authentic Chinese cuisine this far from Chinatown, but Koi Palace in Daly City offers some of the best Cantonese-style dishes in the entire Bay Area.  Geoduck and giant crab are popular menu choices, as are whole steamed fish and roasted suckling pig.

How about some new Moroccan food?  Mourad Lahlou, a self-taught Moroccan chef, began experimenting with cuisine from his native country years ago and now showcases his unique take on classic Moroccan dishes at Aziza.  Some of his offerings include lentil soup with dates, chicken with preserved lemons, and duck.

And what would any visit to San Francisco be without the traditional bread bowl?  Boudin and Chowders both offer delicious renditions of this classic clam chowder dish—served San Francisco-style in a sourdough bread bowl.
