Check out Bi-Rite Creamery too. It's on 18th (I think) just west of Valencia. I think Andy wrote about it in his Inhuman Eating Machine... They have a killer salted caramel ice cream.
YES to Bi-Rite!!! More places to eat here, ice cream and otherwise:
Also, I highly recommend the following places I've not covered in the blog:
Cordon Bleu (California @ Polk in SF)- It's Vietnamese, but not like any other Viet place. All they have is 5 Spice Chicken, rice with meatsauce, imperial rolls (nothing but seasoned meat deep fried in a wrapper), country salad (kind of like mayo-less cole slaw), and something they call shish kebab, which sort of looks like a Steakum, but tastes like God's vagina. Everything is great. Probably my single favorite place to eat in SF.
Torta Boos Voni (Mission @ Geneva in SF)- Best tortas in the Bay Area. They're huge, delicious, and they make their own rolls, which are the best ever. I recommend the Cubana.
My blog has a bunch of stuff about Oakland tacos, but if you don't go over there, I recommend the al pastor tacos at El Castillito across the street from the gay Safeway on Church St.
I can't recommend the It's It too highly. Best ice cream sandwich ever. You can get them in most Bay Area convenience stores. You guys are bastards for even mentioning it. There's a vending machine downstairs with 3 flavors of It's It. There goes my diet.
