Chowhound from D.C. coming to San Francisco. Any suggestions for yummy places to eat dinner near the ninth circuit courthouse on 7th and mission? Not too expensive please (government per diem). Thanks!

  1. Out the Door, cheaper spinoff of the famous Slanted Door, Vietnamese. Basement of the mall a block away.

    Litle Joe's, very old-school SF-style Italian.

    Schnitzel Haus, German.

    About half a mile away, Lers Ros, best Thai food in the area.

    1. Yellow Pa Taut for Burmese lunch plates.

      1. Heaven's Dog is right there. The noodle counter there would fit the bill. A bit cheaper than the restaurant.

        A bit of a walk through the scenic Tenderloin (really, at night take the bus or a cab), check out Lers Ros Thai. Huge, interesting menu, reasonable prices, hightly recommended.

        1. I like Le Charm French Bistro on 5th St. cross Folsom

          1. If you're from D.C., I'm guessing a lack in Mexican food. I'd go to Taqueria Cancun on 6th/Market. Hole-in-the-wall but very good, cheap, must eat there. Also at the Westfield Mall there's WichCraft, casual but nice sandwiches. The shaved head chef/host from Top Chef owns it.

              Wichcraft is a NYC chain with a dozen branches there and one each in SF and Las Vegas.

            2. Gyro King for Turkish. Only two (longish) blocks away

                Gyro King is near SF Superior. Not especially close to the 9th Circuit courthouse.

                Basil Thai would be an easy walk, at Folsom near 8th. India Garden, also on Folsom (between 8th/9th) is another option, and has a pretty good lunch buffet.

                  Gyro King is just one block on Market and another block on 7th to the Federal Building and the 9th Circuit. Sure, that's a few hundred feet farther away in the opposite direction to SF Superior and CA Supreme, but how lazy do you think the OP is?

                  Folsom and 8th is farther away from the courthouse than that stretch of Grove.
