San Wang Restaurant is a restaurant that is easy to miss in the heart of Japantown. It is a mix of Korean and Chinese food, mainly Chinese though. I highly recommend the black bean sauce fried fish. It is great there. The food is here is decent and there usually isn't a line. It's hard to find parking anywhere in Japantown, so try to keep that in mind. Overall, it is a good place to eat at with decent prices.
I LOVE Stow Lake. It definitely is a great way to relax and escape the city feel. It is located inside Golden Gate Park. They offer various rentals. I really like the pedal boats but there are also motor ones. The stuff is kind of on the old side but its a relatively cheap activity. I recommend getting picnic type food and eating it out on the lake in the boat. It makes for a great day! The bikes are also very cool because they have 6 person bikes.
For some reason, my parents LOVE this place, so whenever I come home, I eat dim sum here. Let me tell you: COME EARLY. This place gets really crowded on weekends. I personally like the dim sum restaurants that have you order your food and then bring it to you, but this place has the traditional dim sum carts. The service is not that great, but the prices are good for SF. The food is decent, but with the many dim sum places closes down, this place is definitely a good option. Their regular food is also pretty good and cheap. If you come for dim sum, they usually hand out these coupons for a chicken plate for dinner.
My Tofu House is a small Korean restaurant located on Geary. It is usually very crowded, so do try and come early or later than regular eating hours. The tofu soup is delicious. The food was very satisfactory and the service was good. The other Korean BBQ items smelled equally as good. The inside is small and a bit cramped but well maintained. Come here and try some Korean tofu.
Hawaiian Drive Inn is a super small fast food type of restaurant. the prices are reasonable but I would not recommend eating here because the restaurant is not well kept at all. They serve the typical Hawaiian barbeque type of food. The chicken katsu is pretty good and they give you good sized portions. However, unless you are near this area, I don't feel like it is worth it because there are other places just as good.
This place is a decent pizza restaurant. The main reason I would recommend this place is if you have a coupon and get delivery! The coupon is usually a 50% off coupon and they sometimes don't even ask for it. (I think you can find them in the entertainment book.) The coupon makes the pizza well worth the price. Overall though, the pizza is okay and there are a lot of other pizza restaurants that have better tasting pizza nearby. The inside of the restaurant is a bit run down, so definitely opt for the delivery.
Wing Lee BBQ restaurant has food for a good price. It has the typical Chinese BBQ items like roast duck and soy sauce chicken. I highly recommend the lai fun roast duck soup. It is delicious. They also have okay porridge for a cheap price. Overall, this place is a good spot to get food to go for dinner and it is not so much an eat-in restaurant. Some stuff tends to be on the greasy side so be wary of that.
I used to go to the school down the street and would beg my dad to let us have pizza for dinner from this place. The single slices are the best. I recommend eating the pizza here (single slice) or at least as soon as possible. The delivery pizza was not quite as good. The slices they give you are huge and the prices are very reasonable. The decor is not that nice on the inside but it's a small family owned pizza shop. I personally love the sausage, olive, mushroom.
Sushi Deli is just about the cheapest place to get sushi. The prices are very good and the rolls are just as good. I recommend the 4 x 4 or similar combos because you get the most bang for your buck and you get to taste a variety of things. This one is also easier to get to since it is not in downtown. Check it out!
This restaurant is very not authentic. Yes there is fusion with Mexican ideas but it is not good! The prices are expensive for the small portions and the food is not tasty. There is nothing special to eat here. I would eat at Sushi Deli instead because it is only a block or two farther away!
