About Zain

Zain Iqbal

Zain Iqbal is a San Francisco-based writer and photographer and Bay Area native. After spending much of his life vagabonding around the world in parts of West Africa, South America, Europe, and Central Asia, Zain settled back in San Francisco.  He currently writes about hidden gems and local haunts that represent the city's unique culture, and has convinced countless others that - despite all its hills - San Francisco is a very bike-able city.  Zain is usually found watching the San Francisco Giants at one of his favorite dive bars in the Mission District, hiking in Marin County, or tasting his way through the city's seemingly endless restaurants.
