San Francisco meets Hawaii at this ingredient-driven, Spam-flaunting restaurant.
My favorite is the poppy seed bun with succulent beef tongue. The bun was light and fluffy, which, upon picking up drips with kimchi juice. So good! The poke was fresh and well seasoned. The off-menu house-made spam comes with furikake and pickled cucumber. I am usually not a big fan of spam, but their spam was delicious.
For dessert, I ordered the Baked Hawaiian (caramelized vanilla ice cream with toasted chiffon cake). As far as I love the presentation, it was a little too sweet for my taste.

People line up at this Tenderloin bakery for their famous cruffin, which is an ice-cream-cone-shaped muffin-croissant.
It became such a frenzy that someone even broke in and stole the recipe. The texture of the pastry is perfection in itself and the cream filling changes daily.
This little hole-in-the-wall place serves a tasty morning toast brioche layered with mascarpone cheese, assorted fresh fruits, topped with toasted pecans.
This busy restaurant on Kearny just opened 4 months ago. It is named after a popular Chongqing noodle dish that is known for its spicy and numbing effect. The restaurant offers a good variety of noodle dishes from all over China. The taste is authentic and the price reasonable. It is an ideal place for a quick meal.
