What to do while in SF? EAT!

If there is one joy that comes remotely second to the feeling you get from hours on the bike, it the joy food brings in between. SF is a hub for traveling cyclists, and it is nice to have organized resorces for our guests. 7X7 put this together a list of famous food in the city. I can tell you this is all spot on in the ways I know, except Los Compadres was missing. Save this list, and start checking them off.
