Best place to have some Lamb in SF, non-curry, non-expensive? POSSIBLE?!?!
I want to take my friend out to a place that has a great lamb dish, she doesnt want indian food, and i'm a bit on a budget.
Hopefully there is a place with entrees around $25 and under for a good lamb dish in San Francisco area.
This is for her birthday =)
I like the lamb burger at Bocadillo's in SF Financial District. At lunch, two of them with a garnish salad will set you back only $8.
Another idea is the cumin lamb at Old Mandarin Islamic, on Vicente near 42nd Avenue. It's pepper-spicy and strongly cumin-spiced.
Incanto in Noe Valley has an AMAZING lamb neck that may still be on the menu (was 2 weeks ago). I recommend it highly.
Woodward's Garden - Braised Lamb Shank w. melted gypsy peppers, braised endive, cous-cous - cilantro oil - great value and tastes amazing - about $20.
ziryab, a place next to Nopa on Divisadero (cross is Hayes) has a fantastic lamb kebab entree for about $14. I wouldn't highly recommend much more on the menu (the meze were all pretty bland) - oh wait, yes I would - the olives are incredible, served nice and warm.
chez nous, the small plates place on fillmore, has had a great dish on their menu for years - simply prepared chops served with rosemary salt. perfectly cooked. YUM.
