I had the kim chee and bulgogi burrito for $9.95. The bulgogi was excellent but I prefer the kim chee on the side. It just made the burrito taste rancid. A friend ordered the shrimp curry and it had lots of shrimp for $13.95. Another ordered the chicken curry. All dishes seem to be excellent in flavor. By the way,... More

Like the idea of Mexican Korean fusion. Spot is small so limited seating. Sometimes there's a wait. Great to get your Korean fix.

Enjoyed a quick bite at HRD. Seems to blend Korean, Mexican, Japanese and a little Philly/creole into the menu. Food - Everything seems to blend and work. Lines can be a bit long, but seems to go by quickly. There is seating inside but is a bit minimal for the amount of patrons that visit. I would say the food... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. It was a little crowded and the line was out the door. But the line moved really fast. The employees were very friendly. And the food was absolutely delicious. There are a couple community tables inside, but it was really crowded and not much room to sit so we ordered it to go.

We waited for the 5:00 opening. There was a couple in line from Chicago who had seen the Dives and Diners episode and we're giving it a try as well. We chose the Mongolian beef sandwich and the curry smothered shrimp burrito. Amazing flavor and unique combinations! We walked to AT&T park easily after. There is done in but small... More

HRD is a small storefront restaurant offering a contemporary play on Korean flavors. There are two long family style tables and counter table in the front alongside the window. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. I got a Korean chicken salad bowl which was excellent. Check out the artful presentation, too. The staff is friendly and they run the... More

I've been driving past this place for years and never even looked at it...until I saw it on an episode of Food Network's Diners-Driveins-Dives show. Have been in numerous times since.

Chef David Yeung took over the original 1950s HRD Coffee Shop in 2009 and transformed this joint to offer Asian, Latin and North American fare. From kimchee burritos to curry platters and po' boys, there are plenty of hearty options to choose from for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
