Upper Haight

I have to do some business there and I found almost nothing in past posts about the Upper Haight. I used to eat in the Lower Haight, but the upper part is now a mystery me. Bonus points for being close to the Red Vic Theater.

    1. That's a bit of a waste land...Cha Cha Cha, Squat and Gobble. If on public transpo...consider going to 9th/Irving, lots more interesting choices.

        Funny you should recommend those two as they were probably the last ones I ate at when I used to go to Haight years and years ago. There must be something around there.

        1. re: chocolatetartguy

          I wouldn't actually recommend Cha Cha Cha, never was a big fan but many people like it. Again there's just not much around there. Squat and Gobble is okay for fast, casual and inexpensive. Kezar Pub is okay but not exactly in the Red Vic vibe. On Cole there's Eos...but I've never eaten there but went to the cafe across the street.

      2. i used to like Citrus Club, but haven't eaten in that area in years.

          I've had some good food there as well (passable hot and sour soup, beef chow fun with great wok flavo, jade noodles and shrimp) but also some awful dishes ( some sort of curry noodles)

          1. There is always the Pork Store...

            There is a Vietnamese place on the second floor along north side of the street that is actually pretty good. Sorry I cannot remember the name, but maybe some other chowhounders can help out.

              Only 2nd floor place I can think of is Ploy II, which is Thai, but might be what you're thinking of?

                Yes, I think that is it. Meant to say Thai, but my fingers typed Vietnamese anyway.
