Dutch Pancakes at Outerlands in the Outer Sunset.

The San Francisco dining scene is known for being incredibly diverse and a bit quirky at times

But even with so many restaurants to choose from, certain food items always stand out.

Last summer, Foursquare launched a major rebranding initiative that takes users’ preferences, or “tastes,” and uses them to generate appropriate recommendations. 

Using the tastes users have provided, Foursquare’s data scientists have been able to determine what restaurants and food items are trending in major cities like San Francisco.

From balsamic strawberry ice cream to macaroni and cheese grilled cheese, you’ll find some amazingly delicious things on their list of San Francisco favorites.
