Here on a consulting assignment - yummy dinner take-out?

ljnd May 18, 2010 07:51 PM

I'm staying in the Union Square area, and I find myself at a weird disadvantage. I'm working - if not for my San Francisco client, then catching up on other work and writing my newsletter. I need to be able to take food back to my hotel room.

But not just any food. I like GOOD food. I really hate hotel food - so freaking generic. Where, in the Union Square vicinity, can I grab delicious and authentic and yummy take-out?

    I've ordered delivery from Lers Ros several time and it has consistently been fresh, hot, and delicious. I crave their tom yum pak...

      Good one, Lers Ros is solid!

      How about Lefty O'Douls for a slice of San Francisco and a hofbrau experience to go...

        Shalimar on Jones between O'ferrell and Geary. The area is a bit funky so don't go too late in the evening.

          Eden's Turkish, down the block from Shalimar. The adana kebap is great and I imagine would travel well.

              Loved Out The Door! Our favorites there were the rice noodles with dungeness crab and green papaya salad. I just got back from a trip and we stayed in the Union Square area. One morning, we took the Muni Metro J line to Tartine Bakery. It was amazing. I tried to get my husband, who comes home today, to go there again and bring some pastries back but he didn't have time.

              It would be a real shame to travel to SF (or anywhere with a good food culture) and not at least have one decent or fun meal away from work.

              Take a look at this, the first 3 links will show places around Union Square that's good for solo. If nothing else, you'll get recommendations for places for take out.
