Hangtown Fry Guide

San Francisco, California

Food Guide

The Hangtown fry is a typical American dish prepared with eggs, bacon, and oysters. There are many stories about the creation of this delicacy. One of the most popular one talks about a prisoner who wanted to eat this specific seafood as his last meal; the time lost to catch oysters, allowed him to live one more day. Today you can eat this tasty dish in all San Francisco's restaurants. You can also add some onion, bell peppers and different spices. Our recommended choice for you to taste is a seafood restaurant in the financial district: the Tadich Grill.
