Best Restaurants in San Francisco
The home of the Golden Gate has long been a favorite destination for foodies, local and international alike. With an ethnically diverse community ranging from Europeans and Asians, it is no wonder that San Francisco offers its citizens a huge array of culinary delights to indulge in. Here is a quick look at three of the city’s best restaurants.
One of the best and well-known restaurants in the city is the Roam Artisan Burgers. Located at Union Street, this establishment stands by its motto, “made fresh with mindful ingredients”, by offering its customers only the best choices for burgers, sodas, shakes and sides. For foodies who are well aware of green practices and sustainable actions, eating at Roam Artisan Burgers allows you to not only enjoy great food, but also to enjoy nutritious and healthy food in an eco-friendly setting. One of the ways the restaurant performs such practices is by using free-range turkey, 100 percent grass-fed beef, all-natural bison and making a wholesome organic veggie burger for vegetarians.
If burgers, sodas and shakes are not really your choice of palate, then foodies can try dining at the famous and widely-acclaimed Lers Ros Thai. Among the establishments many rave reviews, one in particular describes the restaurant as serving “Thai food that makes a statement.” Located at Larkin Street, this Thai restaurant serves its customers not only authentic Thai food, but also some exotic dishes for diners with a more adventurous tongue. You can choose to indulge in exotic dishes such as the Pad Ped Alligator, which is alligator stir-fried with in-House-made chili paste. Other highly recommended dishes by Lers Ros include fried tofu, fried quail, green curry, beef salad, duck larb, and not forgetting the house special frog.
If an All-American cuisine and a South-East Asian gastronomical fare do not really satisfy your appetite, then perhaps Zuni Café can do the trick for you. Located at Market Street between Franklin and Gough, this dining establishment has been one of the best in the city since its opening by Billy West in 1979. Like Roam Artisan Burgers, Zuni practices sustainability in its operations by using all-natural ingredients bred in an environmentally-friendly way. If you would like to see a sample of their mouth-watering menus, a browse through their websites will let you see the restaurant’s lunch, brunch, afternoon, dinner, dessert and oyster and shellfish menus. Among the choices available for lunch include wild arugula salad, laced with pomegranate seeds, walnuts, mint and sheep’s milk ricotta, whereas for dinner, you can enjoy, among many others, the Liberty duck breast served with pesto and marinated beets.
With its myriad of dining choices, San Francisco offers food lovers a huge array of gastronomical delights that will sure to satisfy their appetites.
