Hungry for SF, coming from LA 2
If the line's too long at Burma Superstar, you can always go to Mandalay a few blocks away. Though only BS has samusa soup.

Farmer Brown has a cool vibe and great drinks. I wish their fried chicken was more consistent. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's off. Dark meat is better than white, which can be dry.
Wish I could give you a better rec than FB for fried chicken. The best stuff is at Ad Hoc on alternating Mondays (fried chicken night) but that's all the way up in Yountville (Napa).

its off the beaten path, but their chicken and soul food is great. I heard the catfish sandwich is REALLY good too. I have only had the chicken, mac and cheese, mashed patatos, collard greens, things like that.
