Richmond / Sunset

Burma Superstar

  • Neighborhood Burmese – $$
  • Must Order:
    • Tea Leaf Salad
  • Best For: Casual Lunch/Dinner, No Reservation
  • One of the most famous/popular places in SF. No reservations so expect a bit of a wait.
  • Tip: They have a sister restaurant “B*Star” which has a smaller, but very similar menu, located in the Inner Richmond and they take reservations! Website


  • Authentic Dim Sum – $$
  • Must Order:
    • Green Beans
    • Shrimp Dumplings
    • Pork Buns
  • Best For: Casual Lunch, Groups, No Res, Dim Sum
  • So I finally was able to try HK Lounge 2 last weekend, after being devoted to Yank  Sing and Crystal Jade, and I have to say it didn’t quite live up to expectations. The Xiao Long Bao was not very good. I personally won’t return to this spot, unless I get really desperate one day because it is within walking distance to my apartment. If you are craving Dim Sum and want to dish out a little more $$ then go to Yank Sing.
  • Tip: They take reservations for parties of 6+. Website


  • Casual Mexican – $$
  • 2 Locations: Lower Haight and Inner Sunset
  • Best For: Casual Lunch/Dinner, No Reservations, Groups, Mexican
  • No reservations. Better for lunch and dinner, brunch doesn’t have your typical brunch selections. Website


  • Instagram-worthy Brunch – $$
  • Must Order:
    • Matcha donut
    • Eggs in Jail
  • Best For: Nice Brunch, No Reservations, Trendy
  • Come here for brunch one weekend! The restaurant has a great feel and everything from the walls to the toast is Instagram worthy (because if you didn’t take a pic at brunch did it really happen?). The breakfast pastries are all amazing. I would recommend getting the eggs in jail, the dutch pancake is another popular item there but it just seems to be a little too much going on for my liking.
  • Tip: There will be a wait but walk down the street to Trouble Coffee and grab a coffee (or cinnamon toast if the wait is long enough). Website


  • Neighborhood Pizzeria – $$
  • Best For: Pizza, Casual Lunch/Dinner, Take Away, No Reservations
  • Pizzetta is a nice casual spot in Outer Richmond. The pizza’s have thin-ish crusts with delicious toppings – the menu changes frequently but they always have an option with an egg topping, so you should always order that one. No reservations, but you can call ahead and ask how long the wait is. They also do take out if you live in the area. Website

PPQ Dungeness Island

  • Casual Vietnamese Crab Spot – $$$
  • Must Order:
    • Garlic Noodles
    • Crab
  • Best For: Casual Dinner, Weekend Lunch, Crab
  • Nothing fancy looking, casual place that is well- known for serving really good crab. They take reservations or you can put your name down and wait a little! Website
