Westfield San Francisco Centre Food Emporium Recommendations

What would you recommend at the food court?

I really enjoyed Coriander Gourmet Thai - their authentic Beef Pad See Eww very delicious and don't forget to ask for their dried chili. It's very good and spicy.

  1. Out the Door. I actually prefer it to Slanted Door (except the view, of course.) If you go at lunch, they have a delicious banh mi. Not cheap ($8), not "authentic", just delicious.

      I'd give Out the Door a pass and head straight for Tu Lan, which is just a block away. The bun with imperial rolls there is just...sigh...so delicious.

      Another vote for the Korean restaurant as well.

        Agreed. Out the Door is my default lunch in the mall, although I do like the Korean place mentioned below as well.

          i agree..i like it better than slanted door but didn't dare say it! haven't tried the bahn mi..will have to remember for next time

        2. I like Loving Hut, the vegan Chinese place run by a religious order. They have lots of good faux shrimp and faux pork stir fries. Steam table, so you can see what's fresh.

          The Korean bbq isn't bad either. Also a steam table, so you can pick the best looking meats.

            That's Sorabol, I think. They may have the most bang for the buck; portions run large.

            1. re: soupçon

              Yes, it is, thanks. I always liked the Sorabol in Emery Bay.

          2. Ajisen Ramen, and hot chocolate at Cocoa Bella

            (preferably at least a few hours apart)

              I second both of these recommendations. Ajisen Ramen is surprisingly good for mall food.

                  1. re: Windy

                    By all means, their signature tonkotsu ramen (I think they call it "Premium Pork Ramen."}

                    1. re: soupçon

                      Agreed--I keep trying to find a tonkotsu ramen in the city that I like better and I haven't.

                      1. re: ...tm...

                        Thank you both. Will check it out.

                        1. re: Windy

                          I wondered reading this thread how I'd never seen Ajisen Ramen. And then today, meeting a friend at Loving Hut, I wandered around in search of it. No luck.

                          After consulting the touch screen, I found out it's in the basement below Nordstrom's, not the main food "Emporium" by Bloomingdale's. Will try it next time.

                          Not sure about the replies re Oyaji's--people who recommend their ramen, I guess. Oyaji definitely isn't in Westfield Centre.

                          1. re: Windy

                            Yes, Ajisen is right next to Panda Express on the Nordstrom side. Not a far stroll from the main Westfield food court.

                        2. re: ...tm...

                          Try Oyaji's.

                            DezzerSF: shhhhhhh! don't tell people about Oyaji! you want lines to start forming? are you crazy?!!

                1. The Korean place is a standard for me. I get the combo the two different types of short ribs. Yum!

                  1. Beard Papa's a guilty pleasure...
