Everyone had something different and huge plates of wonderful Vietnamese food. Fresh veggies and bean curd for me as a veggie but heaps of meat and fish dishes as well. Friendly hosts and servers and very fast!

This place isn't fancy and you have to walk through the Tenderloin district (through a sea of pee and weed) but boy is it great and cheap! The lemon beef salad was incredibly fresh. The pho was fantastic with layers of flavor, the number 27...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
