Why do you recommend San Francisco for food?

Over rated, and fairly pricey! I would almost say the cost of food in San Francisco is on par with New York, without the same level of quality. The seafood in the area is also overpriced, with a certain crab shop charging upwards of $30 per crab which does not include tips or tax i.e. look to be paying upwards of +25% per meal (approx 10% tax + approx 15% tip). For some reason, all seafood shops were selling New England (East Cost) Clam Chowder in a bread bowl; I am not too sure why the west coast does not have its own soup dish, and that they have to use an east coast soup. East coast soups like this are heavy and stodgy designed for a cooler region should not be sold in a region where the average temperature is 20C and balmy! What made the New England Clam Chowder San Franciscan, was the sour dough bread that is made in the area. To be honest, the bread is not that good either, just tasted like bog standard sour dough, nothing to get excited about. What I would have which is half decent is the local vietnamese (pho was good, but nothing to write home about), chinese (decent also nothing to write home about, unless you have not had decent chinese before) and mexican (burritos are average).
