Any food critics out there that can suggest amazing Mexican food around the Union Square area and the best dim sum in Chinatown?
The topic of Dim Sum always generates a lively debate here. However, I think everyone agrees that it's not found in Chinatown. Great Eastern I suppose is the best in that area. Otherwise, I like Dim Sum at Rincon Annex. (There is also a Top Question -- right side of screen -- on this topic.)
Best Mexican is found in the Mission.
For Chinatown, I like Great Eastern and City View. City View is fancier and more of a quieter atmosphere. For the very best, go to Yank Sing in SOMA. Or for a more local experience, Hong Kong Lounge in the Richmond District.
"The taquerias listed by Cintagreen are good, but not amazing."
In your opinion!! In my opinion, the carnitas super quesadilla suiza at El Farolito is more than amazing. :)
Well, feel free to come up with your own recommendations, rather than repeating mine and saying they're slightly above average. If you think there are better places, then please let us know.Edited: 31 August 2012, 18:25
Colibri in the Union Square area is a convenient place to walk to for a meal. It is not as cheap as a taqueria service needs to be better but the food is not bad
Cintagreen. I think Edward Norton went to all those taquerias you mentioned. LOL. I also like Pancho Villa in the mission
dim sum. Get out of Chinatown and get to Koi Palace outside the city But if that is not convenient I would go with what the fine fine food critics above have suggestedEdited: 31 August 2012, 18:34
For Mexican I used to love Maya and Mexico DF for their decidedly upscale approach. Unfortunately both have closed - same owners.
Oh, another one for Mexican (sit-down) that is quite good is Tropisueno. It's right near the Westfield Mall/Metreon which is convenient. They're good for happy hour especially, but at other times too- though make reservations if you can.
And if you want trendier, sit-down (with great food too), check out Tacolicious. There's one in the Mission and another in the Marina.Edited: 31 August 2012, 19:56
Cintagreen, like I've already said, there are no "amazing" Mexican food in SF. "Amazing" to me is above "great".
Just curious -- since this "amazing" "best" "great" is very subjective and you may not find any "amazing' Mexican food in SF, where in the Bay Area do you find "amazing" Mexican food and if not what restaurant is "amazing" to you.
Not that I am arguing since taste buds differ but just want to hear what restaurant you think is amazing.
Yeah I'd like to hear what you consider amazing as well.
How do you rate Los Pericos in Dublin?
