7x7SF has a great list on the 20 best dishes under $10 in the Tenderloin & Tendernob. Lots of new to me places I hadn't read about on CH. Any other dishes hounds want to share?

List here:

      anyone visited Maharani? they have been all over various deal sites offering discounts but I have so far shied away due to a lot of criticism on Yelp.

        There's a dish I had at Pakwan once that continues to haunt me. I think it was a goat or lamb curry special. Looking at the menu, it might have been the Achar Gosht. $8.99.

          That's always a good choice; I think the lamb version is usually on the menu.

          Was it at Pakwan in the Tenderloin or on 16th?

          Shalimar has several dishes under 10$ I recommend the karahi and some grilled chicken dishes.

            Delaney's on Polk St., a hole in the wall cafe, makes a passable salteña (Bolivian -- La Paz specifically -- variation of an empañada) for $3.50. you mentioned the five spice chicken from Cordon Rouge recently ; that should qualify for the list too.
