Welcome to Places I've Eaten! A San Francisco restaurant and food blog reviewing places I've eaten and the occasional junk food I come across. (sometimes I just have to try it.) Having lived in the San Francisco for awhile now, I have spent as much time eating out as eating in. I also used to work in a number of restaurants over the years where I learned a lot, both good and bad. As I eat about town I tend to look for value measured against what you are getting--kind of a big thing in my world so forgive me if I rail against one too many $10 sandwiches. Thus my goal here is to highlight food that is (mostly) affordable and still tastes good. A sometimes surprisingly hard thing in San Francisco. But I'm not above venturing above my wallet range for some fine dinning experiences. While not always the case, sometimes service and decor will catch my eye and I can toss that in for giggles. 

I will also try to throw in a few restaurant and food adventures from outside the US whenever I can travel. In the end I will continue to engorge my appetite as often as my wallet will allow me, and if it's got bacon on it, I will be all over it! Not to mention cheese or pastry or cookies or cake, mmmmm.......cake.......I'm sorry, what was I going on about?
