Lunch in Civic Center during jury duty

I have jury duty at the Civic Center courthouse (McAllister and Van Ness). Any good recommendations for "foodie" lunch spots within walking distance? Lunch break is about 1 hour. No fast food please. TIA.

  1. Larkin Express - now called Burmese Kitchen (but i think both signs are still up.)

    I've only been once and had the fish soup lunch special and i was utterly amazed at the complexity of flavors. also had the tea leaf salad, which was superb too. others here have raved about it too.

    1. The cafe in the Asian Art Museum is pretty good; it's close to the courthouse, and can be done within your lunch hour.

      1. What about Saigon Sandwich?

        1. Morty's Deli was by far my favorite lunch spot when I was at Hastings. I think it was recently written up quite positively in the Chronicle. I always got a sandwich, but if you're a mac and cheese fan, Morty's is very tasty.
