Good & Cheap Food in SF?

  • g

Hi, I"ll be taking a trip to SF soon and I'm looking for some cheap but good food! :) I"ll spending a lot of my time in Chinatown and the Mission I think, but will be traveling around as well. Thanks a lot.

      Just returned from second trip to S.F. in five months.
      Christmas night we needed a restaurant for ten people
      near Chinatown and were directed to Hunan Homes at
      622 Jackson. It was so delicious and inexpensive
      that we booked it again last Saturday night for twelve.
      Everyone was very pleased with service, cleanliness,
      and food quality. Our other wonderful find was Dottie's True Blue on Jones for outstanding breakfast.
      We weren't looking for cheap, rather very good food.
      Also enjoyed Farrallon and Yabbies.

    2. La Taqueria is the best burrito in the world - 25th and Mission. Big white place two down from the corner.
