If you want authentic Thai food which is reasonably priced, then head to House of Thai, previously known as The House Express. The service is quick and efficient but the servings are on the spicy side so be forewarned. The yellow Thai curry, duck salad, Pad Kee Mao noodles, and a plate of chicken or pork dish is truly recommended. The atmosphere at this place is low-key and casual and the dishes are reasonably priced. It's a great experience in itself to eat here, as it can be truly compared to Bangkok's street food.
Super Duper Burgers has locations all over the bay area and this one located on Market St. is the original. Inside the kitchen, the chefs prepare 100% humanely raised, vegetarian fed beef, where most of the ingredients are sourced from within Northern California. In the case of the shakes and buns, the former comes from Straus Family Creamery while the latter arrives from a local San Francisco baker; needless to say everything is fresh. For those who don't eat red meat, SD still has chicken and veggie options. Add some garlic fries to your burger then top your meal off with a Cookies & Cream shake, it doesn't get any better.
You've never had grilled cheese like this! With different types of cheese and fancy combinations, the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen in San Francisco puts a fun and gourmet twist on this classic dish. They also serve soups, salads, delightful baked goods, and offer daily specials that will satisfy your stomach! Situated near the ballpark, the kitchen stays open until 7p during nighttime baseball games.
El Farolito is one of the Mission's most beloved dive taquerias. The lighting is alright, the decor is bargain-basement, but the burritos are huge and the filling is a delicious, slow-cooked Carne Asada, tender chicken, spicy pork, or veggies and guacamole. You will also find tacos and enchiladas. It is a popular place with locals and people looking for a quick meal, especially late at night when most other spots have closed down. The service is quick and efficient. Only cash accepted.
Rosamunde is loved by all. From bike messengers and bar flies, to hip-hoppers, construction workers, and neighborhood moms with babies in tow, the expertly assembled sausage sandwiches here are irresistible for all. Traditional favorites are well-represented with a range of platter from bratwurst to weisswurst. If your philosophy is "the spicier the better," try the merguez. Each sausage comes on a toasty-hot, freshly-baked bun, and with your choice of grilled or fresh onion, sauerkraut, chili, pickle relish, hot or sweet peppers, and an assortment of mustard and ketchup. Rosamunde's German-style potato salad puts other potato salads to shame, so grab a tub. Enjoy your meal at one of the counters facing the hustle and bustle of the Lower Haight, or bring it all next door to Toronado for a beer.
