While I’m typically not one to participate in the “NorCal” versus “SoCal” battle (having lived extended amounts of time in both), there is one thing that Northern California has that is unbeatable: the water. Tap water here tastes so good. It came back to my mind after drinking tap water in San Diego, which tasted metallic, odd and just not very good. Up here in SF, the water supply from the tap is as good as anything bought in a bottle, or even better. It has that almost buttery quality. Yum.
