I actually stopped by the Wooly Pig cafe after searching for ‘lunch' spots on Yelp near the map area that I was walking in. Whenever I'm in a new place, I rely pretty exclusively on Yelp to get food recommendations. I rarely plan dining spots in advance…whereas I'll always map out sights and things to see pretty meticulously. Does anyone else do that or I am just not a foodie? I have to say, this lack of planning usually means I'm running around town all day sightseeing and then ravenously hungry because I haven't scheduled a lunch or dinner break. Anyway, even though this cafe was pretty much the only option around for several blocks, it turned out to be really filling and a great choice. I'm constantly amazed at how great technology is and even more by the power of user reviews.
When travelling, what do you guys do to find a meal? Do you stop by the first place that catches your eye, rely on yelp in the moment or scour blogs and make reservations in advance? I would also love any San Francisco recommendations for the future – I know the city is well known for its foodie culture!
