Sushirrito’s first location was San Francisco’s Financial District, where it served made-to-order, handheld sushi burritos in a fast, casual format. For all of those who have ever wondered what it would be like to eat a burrito-sized sushi roll, Sushirrito offers a delicious combination of Japanese flavors in a more westernized form. From wasabi mayo to sriracha aioli, traditional Japanese ingredients are fused with other tastes to create a burrito that is both traditional and refreshingly new.

Sushirrito, 475 Sansome Street, San Francisco, California, USA, (415) 393-9905

HRD Coffee Shop

Originally opened in the mid 1950s, the HRD Coffee Shop was named after the Human Resources Department of the Social Security Administration that used to be in the same location. HRD started off as a traditional American diner. However, HRD soon began to serve classic Mexican and American dishes with Korean influences. From Kimchi burritos to delicious Mongolian beef cheese steaks, HRD puts a fantastic spin on the classics.

HRD Coffee Shop, 521A 3rd St, San Francisco, California, USA, (415) 543-2355

Benu is housed in the Financial District and only serves a tasting menu of 18 courses ranging from traditional Chinese food, like shark fin soup, to Chinese-French fusion, like the fois gras xiao long bao. More than anything, though, Benu has a way of introducing a completely foreign taste palate to primarily Western diners.

Benu, 22 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California, USA, (415) 685-4860
