K’s Kitchen is sooo San Francisco. If you’re visiting City College or hiking Glen Park, plan a meal at K’s Kitchen. K, a.k.a. Ken Deng, exemplifies the San Francisco experience. He runs — ran—K’s Kitchen. Though Ken has moved on, K’s continues — a restaurant that serves gnocchi, foie gras & tiramisu… and he, himself, is a […]

Let’s start with location, location, location. Yuzuki sits on the edge of a micro food zone in the Mission. Across the street, a branch of Tartine, considered by some to be the best bakery in the world. Down 18th Street, San Francisco’s favorite market Bi-Right. Across the street, Bi-Right Dairy, an ice cream dream. OK, that’s the setting. […]

Shabu Shabu (TR: swish, swish) is a traditional Japanese hot pot. Almost-paper-thin slices of meat are swished through boiling broth and eaten with veggies fresh from the broth. The cooking is usually done by the diner at the table. Opened in late 2012, Shabuway is a perfect example of a traditional Shabu Shabu restaurant that you’d find […]

We rate Louis’ Diner as the best ocean view and American bargain. That’s a winning combo. If, after sampling San Francisco’s myriad ethnic eateries, yer jonesing for great American burgers and shakes, look no farther than Louis’ Restaurant. And speaking of looking, the view from Louis’ is an astonishment. As you dip your fries in […]

If you’re at the Moscone Center or in one of San Francisco’s museum districts (Third and Mission is flanked by SFMOMA, Museum of the African Diaspora and the Contemporary Jewish) and you want to eat where museumites eat, enter the mini-food zone of Yerba Buena Lane next to the big cube of the Contemporary Jewish, […]

Brunch in San Francisco may be a wee bit different from the last time you took Mum brunching on Mother’s Day. This one is called Sunday’s a Drag. It’s in a 1930’s-style supper club called Harry Denton’s Starlight Room on the 21st floor of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. The room, the setting, the atmosphere […]

Rápido y Delicioso The knock on Mexican food in American restaurants is that every dish tastes the same. Tostados, burritos, tacos — the texture is different, but your taste buds will strain to tell one from the other. That’s not the case at Papito Hayes, a small, skinny place in the culinary free-fire zone of […]

I know it seems impossible, but in famously expensive San Francisco, you get delicious Cal-Asian Fusion food, an all-drag-queen show and a waitress you’ll never forget, all at a bargain price. Where? AsiaSF, a so-San Francisco delight. It doesn’t look like much on the outside, but once you walk in, va-va-voom! We take out-of-town friends here […]

This is one of our favorites. Mexican fare at its best and what San Francisco eating is all about. Papito Potrero is in the lively, interesting neighborhood of Potrero Hill. It’s a tiny (20 seats inside, eight out) restaurant with a creative chef and cheerful knowledgable servers. It’s not fusion food but Mexican regional heightened with […]

Tony’s Pizza Napoletana is run and spun by award-winning pizza maker, Tony Gemignani. The champ has only been in business since 2009, but it’s San Francisco’s number 1 pizzeria, no doubt about it. Tony knows his dough, and he knows his customers. He’s charming, entertaining, knowledgeable and a pizza fanatic. How fanatic? He keeps four (4) […]
