Washington DC Chowhound visiting San Francisco for the first time for 4 days

For brunch, it's not upscale and there's a line, but I recommend Dottie's True Blue Café. Worth the wait in my opinion. Town's End is also excellent for brunch. For dinner, all these options below are great. I'll second the Golden Gate Bakery res, but get there early before the egg custards are all sold out.

North Beach (little Italy), I really like Firenze by Night for dinner. It's on the border between Chinatown and North Beach and a little kitsch and unassuming, but the food is great. For drinks Tosca is classic.

afternoon tea in SF

The Ritz does have it daily, I believe, and is a great experience. Less fancy but fun is Samovar Tea Lounge in the Castro.

Sangrita for tequila sipping

I'm looking to recreate "sangrita", the savory, tomatoey chaser often served with tequila in Mexico. Anyone have a recipe for this or know where I can get a good bottle of the pre-made stuff? Even in Mexico it was hard to find a good brand, and I think a lot of bars there make their own.

Zen Yai Thai -- anyone tried this place?

Got a take out menu for a place called Zen Yai Thai on Ellis, which claims it has "crab meat noodles to die for". While that sounds amazing, I wanted to check in here and see if anyone can vouch for this place.
