In the crazy collision of cultures and personalities that is San Francisco, all kinds of food trends come bubbling up into the national consciousness. And there's no better part of town to see that happen than the Mission District. In the City by the Bay, Chuck gets a tasty lesson in gi-normous burritos, as well as Latino history and culture, from local expert, Jaime Maldonado, and snacks on decadent pork belly donuts at favorite hang-out, The Sycamore. Then, he's off to Foreign Cinema to enjoy pan-seared halibut, butter beans, and avant-garde film with Chef Kevin Davidson. Finally, Chuck dishes out Chicken Fried Soul sandwiches at Jason Fordley's late-night, pop-up kitchen, Soul Groove.
