Lunch @ SFO (Int'l Terminal - A Gates)
Suggestions for a decent lunch at the airport? (Leaving the airport really isn't an option) - departing from the A gates, which means the main hall restaurants and the A pier restaurants are available. Here are the options: (Even if you don't have a strong "yes" or recommendation, an "avoid" if applicable is fine, too.
Harbor Village Kitchen
Osho Japanese Cuisine
Willow Street Woodfired Pizza
(Boarding Area A/Gates A1-A12)
Il Fornaio Caffe Del Mondo
Ruilli has good pressed sandwiches. Have had passable but disappointing meals at Harbor Village and Osho.
Amoura is always crowded and has healthier options than most. But I've only bought a drink there.
I thought the dim sum from Harbor Village was decent—way better than I expect at an airport.
Rulli has great Italian pastries and cookies.
Fung Lum is my go-to place at the international terminal - I love their won ton noodle soup.
I have a soft spot for Ebisu's tempura udon. When going eastward to Europe, you'll want a high starch / low protein meal, and their noodles do the trick. Tasty.
Burger Joint's burgers have a lot of grill char. I love 'em, my girlfriend hates them. You'll read similar about BJ - if you like char, they've got it.
