San Francisco & Bay Area: 6 must-try restaurants this month
It’s time to think fresh for spring, San Francisco. Fresh fish, fresh fruit juice, and woodfired pizzas topped with fresh farm-to-table ingredients; all this and more can now be delivered to your door via Uber Eats.
Inspired by a food-focused trip to Mexico and first launched as a farmers market stand in 2009, Tacolicious now has five different shops that sling Spanish and south of the border delights. For a crowd, order the 10 Taco Meal and some Fried Plantains, or for yourself go for the Chicken Pozole Verde (with roasted poblano-hominy broth) and a Spicy Tuna Empanada. Whether your dining at a soiree or solo, you pretty much must try the Traditional Churros con Chocolate.
The pies at this 14-year-old popular Neapolitan pizzeria are so good, guests can often be found spilling out onto the sidewalk outside. Jump to the front of the line by ordering ahead and getting your Italian indulgences delivered. Pair your pie—white or red sauce styles are available—with fresh Mozzarella di Bufala, a Little Gem Lettuce Salad, and a Tcho Chocolate Pot di Crema.
Since it opened last September, Black Sugar has promised, “no powders, no artificial syrup, just simple and delicious drinks made for awesome people.” Your day will instantly get more awesome once you add an ombre, Instagram-ready Mango Matcha Latte or a buzzy Cold Brew Float. For a dose of antioxidants, sip the Roasted Oolong Milk Tea (made with woodsy and aromatic organic loose leaf tea).
Korea, California, and Latin America meet at this self-proclaimed “authentically inauthentic” fusion restaurant. Fan-favorite recipe remixes include Kimchi Quesadillas (mozzarella, kimchi, jalapenos, crushed tortilla chips, scallions, and kimchi aioli) and Soy-Garlic Chicken Wings. For a nice amount of spice, add an order of the Kimchi Fried Rice that comes topped with kimchi aioli and a poached egg.
Poke House has been growing almost as quickly as our appetite does when we peruse their menu—the local franchise recently opened its fifth location to meet customer demand. Taste for yourself without having to fight the crowds by having your bowl brought to you. Chicken, tofu, tuna, and salmon star in their signature bowls. Prefer to pick the poke cast yourself? Try the House’s build-your-own option or skip the carbs and get Poke by the Pound (proteins, mix-ins, and sauces sans-rice).
From shots to smoothie bowls, Jamba Juice will be your jam whether you’re in need of just a little perk-up or a complete meal. We suggest waking up to a fresh juice—ask for it to be delivered to your desk!—and wrapping up your day with a soft pretzel and a sweet smoothie.
