Food posts from my Left Coast concert trip to San Francisco: Kare-Ken @ Tenderloin, Dragon Eats @ Financial District, Bissap Baobab @ Mission, Cream @ Mission, Good Mong Kok Bakery @ Chinatown, New Golden Daisy @ Chinatown, Kobe Bento @ Chinatown, Red Blossom Tea @ Chinatown, Sushirrito @ Union Square, Boudin Bakery @ Union Square and Boxing Room @ Hayes Valley.
I visited Dragon Eats for lunch after an unsuccessful trip to the symphony to get rush or student tickets. I wanted to watch Capucon play with the SFSO, but it was deemed too high profile a concert to offer student tickets (wtf!?) Seriously, this is why orchestras are going under. If they sold student tickets for this, they would have had $20 more in their till and one extra butt on a seat. Not like the concert sold out anyway.
Anyway, Dragon Eats is situated round the corner from the ballet, and was really crowded when I got there–lots of kids from the ballet and their parents. The place sells only bahn mi (Vietnamese sandwich) and fresh bowls (basically bun), and they are all very inexpensive at $6. There’s also cucumber and mint infused water, which is a plus! 🙂
The interior has that rustic chic oriental vibe to it. Likes!
Roasted Pork Fresh Bowl – $6: This was absolutely delicious. The portion is perfect for lunch, though larger eaters might want more than just a bowl. The bowl had noodles, mixed greens, pickled carrots and radishes, and a generous portion of roast pork, which to my delight, was sufficiently fatty for my taste! Good job on not skimping by using less flavorful cuts! This was so good, I did consider getting another bowl. Haha!
