Lers Ros

One of the most popular Thai restaurants, not only in Tenderloin but all of San Francisco, Lers Ros truly lives up to its reputation. Whether in for a vegetarian meal or something with more bite, there is no shortage of delicious options. Apart from regular treats like fried quail, the menu also features specials like garlic and pepper rabbit and prawns asparagus.

730 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94109
Cafe Mason

This contemporary American bistro is a godsend to people who like to eat late at night. It makes a great alternative to 24-hour greasy spoons. This modern diner has a retro feel. Sit on the red padded bar stools at the chrome counter and slurp up a chocolate milkshake. Located in the theater district, a block from Union Square, Cafe Mason serves breakfast, lunch or dinner whenever you want and at affordable prices. The cooks make most things from scratch including home-made pastas, desserts, soups, and sauces. Nothing beats hot buttermilk pancakes topped with pure maple syrup at 4a.

320 Mason Street, Between Elwood Street and Ofarrell Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94102
Taqueria Cancun

The ambiance at Taqueria Cancun is Mexican bohemian, with students, artistic types, yuppies, tourists and Mexican ex-pat families mixing easily over huge platters of enchiladas, tacos, fajitas and other authentic Mexican favorites. The beef here is slow-cooked and exceptionally flavorful with its chile-spiked marinade. The service is friendly and personable, but peak hours can slow them down, so plan accordingly.

2288 Mission Street, Between 18th & 19th Streets, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94110

Nopa is a great place to get together and try out some of the finest wines from around the globe while enjoying an array of organic cuisine prepared in a wood-fire stove. The extensive wine list offers bottles from Italy, Spain, France, and Germany. The atmosphere is laid back and entertaining - you can eat at the bar and watch the chefs in action as they prepare food in the open kitchen. Be sure to try their famed grilled country pork chop!

560 Divisadero Street, At Hayes Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94117
Ryoko's Japanese Restaurant & Bar

Head downtown to Ryoko's for arguably the most creative sushi on Nob Hill. The family owned and operated restaurant has dabbled in the food business for over two decades. Exclusively sourcing its fish from Japanese waters, it creates an imaginative array of sushi and sashimi. Start off with gyoza, beef teriyaki, or wakame-su with octopus. The menu features classics like salmon sake, white tuna shiromaguro and BBQ eel unakyu. For a thrilling treat to your palate, brave the Volcano Roll which is a tasty tempura shrimp sushi filled with cucumber, peanut butter and jalapeño. The best seat in the house is right next to the friendly chefs where you can catch all the sushi rolling action.

619 Taylor Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94102

Do not mistake this diner with a typical San Francisco tourist trap. Beyond the garishly painted exterior featuring the Golden Gate Bridge and a curly-cue city skyline, you will find a cozy converted railroad car that serves up some very fine burgers, fries and milkshakes. But that is not all. Portuguese specialties such as Bacalbau a Gomes de Sa (codfish with eggs and olives) can be found depending, according to the menu, on availability. The service is always good, but the crowd changes with the hour. Daytime and early evening, it is full of local professionals with their families and students from around town. Later at night, after the area bars have closed down, it becomes a bit more boisterous with people drifting in for a bite and a cup of java after a night of drinking.

1525 Pine Street, Between VanNess and Polk Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94109
Bob's Donuts and Pastry Shop

Bob's Donuts and Pastry Shop is a popular stop for people leaving the bars, since Bob's is open 24 hours a day! The donuts and pastries in this hole in the wall are made from scratch. They are light, never greasy, and while they will never be confused with health food, they are undeniably a comfort food par excellence. They are also always fresh, as you can see by watching staff fry 'em up right behind the counter. The Bear Claw comes highly recommended.

1621 Polk Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94109
Orphan Andy's

The red leather covering in the booths and on the chrome-stemmed stools at the counter let you know that this Castro Street institution is proudly 1950s retro. The food is classic 1950s diner fare, with hamburgers cooked to order and fries that are tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside. The milkshakes are almost too thick to get through the straw. Other sweet treats are from some of the finest bakeries in the Bay Area. The prices, too, are affordable. Located on the corner of Castro, this is a great place for people watching.

3991 17th Street, Between Castro Street & Hartford Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94114
Sam's Pizza and Burgers

Sam's Pizza and Burgers offers a simple, uncomplicated menu, featuring All-American fast food for delightfully low prices. Expect to find here a wide range of burgers, pizzas and such that have brought in the locals and tourists in droves ever since 1966! These offerings, albeit lax on the health factor, are truly delicious and highly addictive. The Telegraph Hill eatery features simple and comfortable furniture that is conducive for a relaxed meal with the family or a close group of friends. Drop in and enjoy one of their freshly-grilled, juicy hamburgers with toothsome fries anytime you get the munchies - they're open all week, well into the wee hours of morning!

618 Broadway Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94133
Golden Boy Pizza

Golden Boy Pizza features a few tables, a counter and pizza, and this is all you will find here. Italian-speaking locals mix with people from all over who come here for slices or whole pies made with focaccia dough, thick and dripping with olive oil that makes a napkin required with every bite. The toppings are piled just as thick and are similarly, no frills. No goat cheese here, but you will find the classics such as pepperoni, mushrooms and even pesto!

542 Green Street, Between Bannam Place and Jasper Place, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94133
