Looking for suggestions of 'must try' places while in San Francisco and San Jose

MagicMarkR, I have no problems walking around, I think I will try the Ferry Building and then check out China Town. Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks for the replies!! I'll be traveling from Texas to Silicone Valley, but I'll have a rental car. So I figured SF looks pretty close, I have an empty weekend and I've heard that there's great food to be had in SF. There were so many choices I found while checking the net, I'm hoping to get some "you have to go to" type places from people that have visited or live there. As far as the type of food, I'm very open, probably get my fill of South/Central American cuisine here at home, anything else, I am game for. I've also seen there are quite a few great bakeries, I thought I'd pick up something sweet to bring home to my brood. Thanks again for the info.

Going to be there for a week (first time visiting) and was hoping you guys to steer me to some great food. Restaurants, bakeries, food trucks, I'm open to any and all types of food.

CHOW Reviews: Magic Bullet Express 17-Piece High-Speed Blender Mixing System

Mixes protein powder and milk very well, stinks in all other endeavors.

2 days in Houston: Seeking Best steak and Mexican Food

For the steak, you may want to consider Perry's Steakhouse. I've eaten there more than a few times and the food was great and service excellent. I believe they now have 4 or 5 locations around Houston. For Mexican, I typically eat at local dives, not much on atmosphere or deconstructed modern Mexican food, just good tex-mex, so I'm probably no good to you there.

Thanks for the quick responses. I made sure I have the latest version of Flash. I uninstalled and reinstalled it. I turned off my pop-up blocker. I'll check the firewall settings, but I'm using the same firewall as before when they were working. Some of the videos that I have tried to lately are; storing ginger, prepping rice noodles, healthy sugar substitutes. Really any videos from 'The Perfect', Chow Tips and 'Most Recent' categories. Thanks for your help.

Anyone else having issues lately viewing the videos? I click on play video and the advertisements play, then nothing.... I've tried both IE (8) and Firefox (3.5.3) with no luck. Any ideas?

Mom's Biscuits

Just curious, why is this recipe categorized as 'hard'?
