Asian-American fusion food in a casual dining setting. I had beef tacos with pineapple salsa, which were tasty and cost about $10 for a very reasonable portion. It's not haute cuisine but it's definitely worth trying, and the service was very friendly.

Though lauded by many, HRD Coffee Shop is just a greasy dive with salty, so-so food. Prospective patrons can identify HRD Coffee Shop on a somewhat gritty block of Third Street in SOMA by the line of hungry diners snaking down the block and by...More

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
