Chang’s New Take on SF: Love the City, but Not Taylor’s Automatic Refresher

Now that everybody’s over that whole “figs on a plate” thing of last month, David Chang has more opinions to share with San Francisco. During his latest Bay Area book tour, he and Momofuku co-author Peter Meehan weighed in with Yumsugar on the most overrated restaurant in San Francisco: Taylor’s Automatic Refresher. “[It’s] definitely not as good as In-N-Out. I’ve had their patty melt, and it could be better,” Chang said. For burgers, they both love In-N-Out, which they plan to hit up while in town as well as Quince, Commis, and Chez Panisse. But Chang is still thinking about that earlier dust-up. He told Food Gal, “I was at the farmers market today (Ferry Building one in San Francisco), and I didn’t want to look at anything because I was so upset… People don’t know I come to San Francisco 10 times a year. I love San Francisco.”
