worthwhile on the go lunch btwn tours nr 16th Mission or Cali/Powell [San Francisco]
Don't think I'll have time for a sit down - -Dashing between walking tours - 1st ends at 12:45 pm by 16th Street Mission Bart and next one starts at 2pm at California Street btwn Powell & Mason.
Any quick good do not miss casual eats by either place?
Saw Mission Banh Mi and Chilean emapnadas in Mission but I was hoping for quick Mexican or something we don't have in NYC.
Snacky stuff will work great - just don't want to miss something that might be amazing close by.
Thank you in advance SF chowhounds!!
whatever your choice is, eat your lunch around 16th and Mission, don't EVEN think about Cal and Powell for ANYTHING quick easy or casual that's not a fast food dump or slow, difficult and formal like in a hotel.
ok that's not fair and I know it's not true, but the poster doesn't have time to browse.
a taqueria's burrito might be large, but it's not the kind you get anywhere else (even at places that CLAIM they do CA style) - just tuck what's left into your backpack for later. everyone does.
There are any number of quick taco/buritto places around the 16th and Mission BART station. I like Pancho Villa, others prefer La Cumbre and there are plenty more.
Then jump on BART for two stops until Powell Street. It's a bit uphill to get to Powell and California, so you might want to look for a cab, since time is a little tight.
