bay area pizza does generally suck. there are a few places that are adequate, and oddly the chicago-style pizza you can get out here is pretty good. but nobody does a proper new york giant thin slice

there's this little local place called "papa murphy's" that does ny style, would you like their address

also ima make a heretical statement and say that the mission burrito is not that great. the whole point of a burrito is that it's self-contained. if you need an aluminum housing to keep it together that totally misses the point AND it still falls apart when you're eating it AND it's too much food for anyone who isn't michael phelps.

the best burrito you've ever had is like a 5 tops in the overall scale of fast food

being proud of "good burritos" is real weird


when a buddy of mine moved from baton rouge to sf, i met up with him when some friends from new orleans came to visit and the first thing outta their mouths was "ok what's good to eat here" thinking that sf was a food destination city like back home lol

im allergic to the "oh my GOD you HAVE to go to the best [pho/sushirito/mexi-thai/vegan bbq] place in the WOOOOORLD" local recs because 90% of the time i'm waiting two hours for food that isn't good and then I have to lie to my coworker or friend about what I thought about it. i like a little bit of self discovery; occasional duds are fine.

afaik it has to be the big stupid easy to catch kind of sea turtle, because there is little actual edible meat on its frame by weight

yeah, trying to find the "best" of anything is a great way to stand in line for overpriced stuff food isn't a god thing to try to minmax

I was more confused by people living here and not knowing about super easy/cheap things like chinese and mexican bakeries or donut shop banh mis

i've noticed this phenomenon too but figured i was just not a boba tea connoisseur.

i stood in line for one once cause it was nearby and i figured it must be good with all these people! then i got in and the entire menu only had four options and they didn't have aloe chunks. what the gently caress. i'll just go to i-Tea

there's a banh mi place in calgary that everyone would line up for but the line moved fast and it was legit the best banh mi in calgary (low-ish bar but still)

they didn't sell boba either, just banh mi
