Baker in need of South San Francisco good eats
I am going to a week long baking class in South San Francisco and will be staying near the airport and was looking for good recommendations for easy dinners in the area. I like fresh, local food and all sorts of ethnic cuisine. I would like to keep it in a reasonable price range as I'll be eating out all week. Probably $10-15 per plate. I will have a car, so I can travel some just don't want to deal with major rushes or traffic. Thanks, in advance, for any leads!
There is a current thread on South city dining and another on nearby Brisbane, but generally it's not a destination for food.
Your best bets are the southern edges of San Francisco (SSF is 15 minutes' drive from the Mission) or head south a couple of exits to Millbrae for great Chinese food (Asian Pearl, Hong Kong Flower Lounge, Shanghai Dumpling, many more).

I really like Patio Filipino in San Bruno and Little Yangon (Burmese) in Daly City. Both are probably better suited for groups, but they both have terrific noodle dishes that could make for a satisfying solo meal.

We go there regularly. Very friendly staff. There are some strengths on the menu (ginger salad, asparagus chicken, roti, house special noodles, green beans) and some eh dishes (pumpkin curry, basil chicken). And lots more on the menu we haven't tried, but we always seem to order our favorites. Next time i will try to get them to make me asparagus chicken with green beans instead of the out of season asparagus.
In South SF proper there's Villa del Sol and the Basque Cultural Center.

There are some great sandwich places in South city. The most popular (and the longest wait: call ahead!) is Little Lucca. They have deli style sandwiches with a yummy garlic sauce.
A similar and much less crowded option is Schoolhouse Liquor and Deli at Magnolia and Baden. It is one block east of Grand Ave. They always have fresh bread from Raymond's, lots of meat choices and delicious sauces as well. They're a bit cheaper too.
A new favorite is Subculture Deli (lunch only) right behind Raymond's sourdough bread outlet on Spruce St. They have amazing homemade chili and a mean Italian sub done right.
There is also a really good Hofbrau right off Grand called Bogy's Hofbrau. Lots of roasted meats, homemade warm sides, and salads to choose from.
