3 miles in the Richmond District

Yep.  I'm still plodding along in the Richmond District.  In the dark.

This section of the neighborhood is pretty sleepy after dark, so the brightest spots were the corner stores and restaurants.  The Royal Market on Geary looks like it offers standard fare from the outside...


...but the labels say otherwise.  This is the place to go if you need any eastern European goodies.

As I was walking past this Korean restaurant on Balboa, it occurred to me that I have yet to eat in a single Korean restaurant in San Francisco.  This place looks really nice, but is it the best place in town to try for the first time?  If not, where should I go first? I need suggestions!

I didn't have time to stop in, but this place looks like it can make a dandy chai.  So, I think I'll stop in for one the next time I'm in the neighborhood.

  1. Re: Korean food. Han Il Kwan (the one pictured) is good (and their lunch specials are a great deal.) Brothers on Geary is a Korean BBQ classic, although I like the Wooden Charcoal place across the street better. After all of these years, I still like the tofu soup at My Tofu House (also on Geary.)
