Her Best Eats in San Francisco


Thai is terrific...

Visitors to San Francisco for business or pleasure will enjoy the Cha Am Thai Restaurant, located at 701 Folsom Street, at Third Street. Cha Am has a wonderful location: just behind the Moscone Convention Center for those attending a convention, and a block from the Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for those exploring the SOMA neighborhood. Three blocks south of Market Street. Cha Am is a friendly place with great Thai food where women travelers either solo or in a group will feel welcome. I live in the building above the restaurant and have been eating there for six years. My recommendations include satays and golden triangles (vegetables in puff pastry) as appetizers and Pad Thai, curries, or Thai-style barbecue ribs or chicken as entrees. Get a Thai ice tea (with evaporated milk) or a Thai beer to accompany your choice. Reasonably priced. Phone: 415-546-9711.

Best salads and Mexican treats...

Plutos Restaurants -- two locations on Scott St. (3258 Scott St. and Chestnut) and 627 Irving St. and 7th Ave) serves the best salads imaginable for an amazingly low price. Also fresh cooked turkey or steak sandwiches all presently under $7.00 for lunch or dinner. Plutos is a small chain of simple restaurants that feature fresh food, in large portions, at low prices, served cafeteria-style. Their slogan is "Fresh food for a hungry universe." Open 11am­10pm, 7 days.

Or try some of San Francisco's wonderful Mexican food at any Taqueria (Mexican fast food) in the Mission District. Authentic Mexican burritos and Tacos are so reasonable and so delicious.

Outdoor cafe...

Bistro 69 is one of the several eateries on Maiden Lane offering outdoor café seating. This busy spot specifically focuses on business and shopping crowds. Serving breakfast and lunch, the bistro offers an array of Mediterranean and Italian dishes, specialty sandwiches, and breakfast omelets. Address: 69 Maiden Lane, tel: (415) 398-3557.

Tea at The St. Francis...

The Westin St. Francis (Union Square) has tremendous charm and is one of the oldest hotels in the City (their Christmas decorations this year were spectacular!) The last time I was there, they served a lovely high tea in The Compass Rose room, located off the Powell Street Lobby. This is a bit about their 'tea service' (taken from their website).

"Refurbished in 1982, the magnificent Compass Rose room, originally built in 1904, has been restored by Italian woodcarvers, to recreate the era and replicate existing historic photographs. The name alludes to the restaurant's custom-made artwork, sculptures and museum-quality objects brought in from all points of the compass. In fact, a beautiful granite floor design features a compass rose.

Expect a "Three-Tiered Tea" menu that is luxurious, refined and delicious.
Served on a "triple deck silver tea service," it features A choice of thirteen of the best quality full leaf teas, small, freshly baked scones, served with butter and homemade preserves, a selection of delicate and tasty tea sandwiches, seasonal berries with cream, an assortment of pastry, petits fours and miniature tarts.

Afternoon Tea is served daily from 3:00 to 5:00PM. Choose the Complete Tea Service ($29.50) or the Royal Tea Service ($34.00-$43.00, including a glass of specially selected sparkling wine. For reservations, please call (415) 774-0167."
