After the Ride: Local Favorites

Han Il Kwan SF Weekly's Best of Winner 2010 - Editorial Pick - BEST ONE-DISH FEAST: DOLSOT BIBIMBAP
Pizzetta 211 Don't come here with more than 2 people. Tiny spot!
Lou's Cafe Best sandwich in San Francisco. #fact
My Tofu House Seafood soft tofu is the best here
Cinderella Bakery & Café Piroshki make a good quick lunch
Halu You'd be hard-pressed to find better okonomiyaki in the city. Throw in the Beatles decor, the offal-laden yakitori, and the friendly family vibe and the tiny Halu's a win. [Eater 38 Member]
312 8th Ave, San Francisco CA — (415) 221-9165
Schubert's Bakery Try a slice of the Princess Cake - authentic flavor!
Genki Crepes Gotta try the dessert crepes with nutella. mmmm mmmm good!
Burma Superstar Sharing borders with India, China, Laos and Thailand, Burmese cuisine is inevitably influenced by the spices, seasonings, ingredients, and cooking styles of its neighbors.
Loló Weird weird decor, but don't be distracted. Delicious brunch menu with no wait (not sure how long this will last). Also the fresh horchata Pina Colada made me feel like I was on vacation.
Hamlet Little gems w/ burrata and the ribs were my favorites. Nice cozy spot with good food and 90s hip hop playing all night!
Lucca Ravioli Company This windowless shop is the secret trove of mozzarella, pasta, pesto and spices that your imaginary Sicilian grandmother left for you in her will
El Techo Best rooftop drinking in the mission
Lolinda everything is amazing, but definitely don't miss the croquetas and the bone marrow.
Beretta If you like Bon Iver, pizza and hipster chicks, you've found a home.
Arizmendi Bakery Panaderia & Pizzeria One of the best slices in the city for only $2.50
Papalote Mexican Grill The best salsa in San Francisco, hands down. Go here, get a burrito, and buy a jar of their salsa.
Taqueria El Farolito 7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the super carne asada burrito is delicious. Yum!
Mr. Pollo Let the chef Manny make a tasting menu for you, everything is delicious.
Prubechu Go for the chef's choice tasting menu but add from the ala carte menu so you can try the other dishes that might not be included. It might end up being a lot of food but it's worth the adventure!
