Lunch recommendations for Saturday (near DeYoung Museum)

mmarean Jul 25, 2008 04:39 PM

I will visiting the DeYoung museum tomorrow and every restaurant that has been recommended to me does not serve lunch on Saturdays. I would prefer anything other than Chinese since my family eats it often. Any ideas?

    There are many good restaurants at 9th: Marnee Thai, Ebisu (sushi) and Hotei (noodles) across the street, Park Chow with a great upstairs dining area, Pacific Catch, Arizmendi bakery, and Cafe Gratitude for a special raw food experience.
    On Irving there is also: Yumma's with a little back porch for great middle eastern wraps, etc., Crepevine, Pluto's for salads, Hahn's Hibachi, and a whole smattering of other spots that I haven't tried yet. Yum have fun!

        You might try CHA CHA CHA on Haight....pretty sure they're open on Sat. lunch. Try their spinach salad, calamari, fried plantains, chicken paillards. They make yummy sangria there, too. Oooh....getting hungry

        Probably too late for you but the best place is Tong Kiang, 5821 Geary Blvd (between 22nd Ave & 23rd Ave) (415) 752-4440. Great dim sum!!!
