Sushi and ramen restaurants are all around the city, but it is hard to find a good place to try shabu shabu – Japanese hotpot. Aside from the decent service, the ingredients at Shabu House are very fresh. When it comes to hotpot, meat choices are very important. This place beats their competitors thanks to their fancy Kobe beef. They also have lamb and other meat choices, which are all tender and beautifully delicious. Save your stomach for some matcha ice-cream at the end, too.

Red Tavern

Restaurant, Russian

Richmond District is home to a fair amount of Russian restaurants, the greatest of which is Red Tavern. Their menu is considered the most authentic Russian food in the Bay Area. Not only does the Russian staff make the ambiance very warm, but the food is also very delightful with a home-cooked taste. The meals are simple, fresh and delicious.

Hong Kong Lounge

Restaurant, Chinese, Dessert

You should not skip Hong Kong Lounge, since Chinese cuisine is signature of the neighborhood. All the standard dim sum dishes are attentively served, hot and flavorful. If you have ever wondered what Asian people usually crave for breakfast, then you need to come here to experience yourself. The Chive Shrimp rice cake, Siu Mai and Pork Buns are tasty. Their dessert menu is positively rated as well; get yourself an order of mango pudding to complete your culinary adventure.

This spot is perfect for a family dinner because their menu is good overall. The spice level is tolerable and the dishes are all flavorful. Their generous side dishes are very enticing, as is the fried fish. Tofu soup and Banchan are must-try items to order right after you get your table.


Restaurant, Bistro, French

An awesome destination for your food marathon in the neighborhood, Chapeau! has a menu that beats all other French restaurants in the city. Are you planning to try true escargot dishes? Chapeau! is ideal for you. When it comes to French cuisine, filet mignon is an indispensable choice. It is beautifully cooked here. Other than that, their traditional dishes like French toast and crème brûlée are perfectly flavored.

Yummy Yummy

Restaurant, Vietnamese

Ask any Vietnamese person in San Francisco and they will tell you the chicken wings here are some of the best in the city. This is the second branch of Yummy Yummy restaurant on Irving street, which is well-known for their authentic cuisine. The soup with crab meat and fish belly is one of a kind. They might not have the best Pho noodle soup, but their appetizers and rice plates are excellent.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
