If there is one thing I've experienced in this city, it's forking delicious food. What are your faves?

Me:

Sunflower lemongrass tofu lunch combo
B Star everything
Gracias Madre lunch special
Saha I don't even remember what the fork we ate but we ate a lot and it was good
Jay's Cheesesteak seitan hot pepper sandwich
Weird Fish buffalo girls
Little Chihuahua wild mushroom tacos
Arizmendi English muffins and wolverines
Millennium Chili and beer themed dinner (that I didn't pay for!)

I've spent so much money on food. DAMN GOOD FOOD.

I haven't had that sunflower lunch combo in so long. It's such a huge amount of food for $10, a little greasy but still damn good. And their soup is awesome.

I really like Big Lantern. They deliver and have online ordering and dim sum. Favorites are the general's meatless chicken, the turnip buns, turnip cakes, and the chive dumplings.

Oh, so Weird Fish has deigned to provide Buffalo Girls to the public again, have they? I don't know, those things are forking tasty. But the folks are Weird Fish are so forking asparagus. It's a dilemma.

The plantain tacos at Gracias Madre are off the chain but they're not always available. I do like that they mix it up, though!

The vegetable foo young at Golden Lotus in Oakland is so delicious, I want to guzzle that gravy.

The Lemongrass Special thingie at Loving Hut in Chinatown/North Beach is really good, and I like the Thai Iced tea at all Supreme Master restaurants.

Flaco's taquitos.

French fries with vegan ranch at Saturn Cafe.

Cha-ya rolls. Deep fried and sushi, together at last!

Patxi's pizza. It's so incredible, I can always go for a second slice but always regret it. I've been vegan ten years and this is the first vegan pizza I've ever had that is just as good for cold breakfast as back in my omni days.

Cha siu bao at Lucky Creation in SF Chinatown.

Tofu banh mi from Saigon Sandwich in Little Hanoi/Tenderloin.

I will keep going forever.

oooh! I'm loving this post! I need lots of lunch ideas for when I'm in San Francisco for a conference. Any good stuff near the Moscone Center?

The crispy tasty sandwich at Souley Vegan is ridiculously good, as are the fried okra w/ tartar sauce (the sauce is key!).
Spicy Sloppy Joe at Breakroom (Oakland).
Oyster mushroom "calamari" at Millennium
Salted caramel donut from Donut Farm

hmmm, i seem to have a lot of fried food on this list...

Apple sage vegan sausuage with fried onions and peppers and spicy brown mustard from Rosamunde.
Crispy toasty sandwich from Souley Vegan, with a side of greens, of course.
I second the Cha Ya roll.
The KALE at Gracias Madre. OMG.
LIBA FALAFEL. As Chris said, the condiment bar is insane. Fried pickled onions AND homemade cumin pickles.

There's a Loving Hut takeaway restaurant in the basement food court of the Westfield Mall, and there's a Whole Foods with lots of vegan options (including pizza and donuts) on 4th & Harrison. Those are the two that are really within walking distance of Moscone. Also, Zog's Dogs at Market & Kearny has a veggie dog.

Mike's mom sent us $20 for Hallowe'en (?), and we were going to hit up the Liba Falafel truck, but it wasn't there! We thought we'd try the Seoul on Wheels truck, but they were out of tofu!

So, starving, we headed to Sunflower. I got the lemongrass tofu lunch special, and Mike got the vegetarian vermicelli with imperial roll, and holy crepe, it was SO GOOD. And SO CHEAP! Thanks, Vijita, for the recommendation!

    -Anything wrapped in that yummy flaky dough (strudel, roulade, braciole, etc...) at Millennium... And pretty much everything else there.

    -Anything with a nut base at Scream Sorbet... and that strawberry sorbet -- it's just made with strawberries and sugar! Ahhh... <3 Hopefully their store front on Telegraph and 51st opens soon, or I'll have to spend the rest of my life chasing them from farmer's market to farmer's market... (I get their stuff at the Ferry Building FM & in the Temescal FM.)

    -Chile cilantro uttapam at Dosa. Plus, that vegan sambar turns me on! *pelvic thrusts*

    -Pizza with added nettles (must ask for vegan) at Gialina's. Mmm.

Berkeley
    -FLACOS! Their taquitos are fried corn tubes filled with love.

    -Vegi Food's fried veggie (or vegi) wontons.

    -Saturn Cafe skinny fries... Mmm.

    -Tacubaya's fideo. It's cappellini pasta in spicy tomato enchilada sauce! GENIUS!

Oak-Town
    -Encuentro. Okay, their menu changes a lot, but that socca (if vegan) is always good! Plus, I think I'm an Eric Tucker groupie.

    -Souley Vegan. Thank you for making okra taste good to me.

    -No Worries afritada+lumpia+giniling+rice=happy CNA.

    -Pepple's Donuts!!! Especially their old fashioned. :) And their elusive raised donuts.

    -EVERYTHING that Hella Vegan Eats makes! I found them at the EB Underground Market. <3 Plus, those HVE people are so friggin' awesome and sweet!

I'm going to add the vegan chili fries at Social Brewery! I'm not even someone who really loves chili but they use rancho gordo beans and lots of veggies, and the fries are really good too. I really like that place, and often stop in for a pint and a $3 cup of chili.

And YES the kale at Gracias Madre. And the papas, too. I ordered the kale in taco form the other week and it was a good choice since you also get some of that smokey cheese sauce and a pile of tasty beans.

Is anyone up for a Souley Vegan meetup? I know you've done that before but it was before my time, and I want a forking crispy sandwich.

I learned of the existence today of a vegan tuna melt at Gestault. I will be investigating, although the building literally started falling apart while we were there today so hopefully that doesn't put a damper on my first vegan tuna melt experience.

Also, anyone been to Beretta? This non-ppk vegan I know keeps telling me it's some of the best vegan food in the city but she also keeps telling me to go to Herbivore so I don't really trust her.

Beretta is a little weird... Their pizza is good, but not something to write home about. If I ever get food there, I order it to go now. It gets a little loud there, and I'm kinda nervous in that place because someone robbed it while it was open once during dinner -- took everyone's wallets, the money out of the cash register, etc.... That did happen quite a while ago, and I don't think that'll happen again, I was just creeped out after hearing about it.

Oh, you know, I think my (vegan) boss is really into Beretta, and not, apparently, into Herbivore. I keep meaning to try it out...

Oh, and I can't speak for anyone else, but I'll go to Souley Vegan with you anytime!

I definitely agree with the kale at Gracias Madre!! And papas, too! :) Super good... Oh, and I loved when they had the nopales tacos. So delicious...
Anyone ever tried their chilaquiles? I've seen that they have them sometimes during brunch on the weekends, but I've never gone on a chilaquiles day. :/

Ryan and I went to Moya last month when we were in the city--its in SoMa and it is delicious. We're definitely going back. I read about it on Vegansaurus http://vegansaurus.com/post/998290909/e ... moya-rules

I had the 3-veggie combo and Ryan had the Tibs thing.

Little Vietnamese smoothie and bánh mì cafe on Piedmont, The Green Apple, serves a mushroom bánh mì to die for. Tell the lady you are vegan and to hold the mayo, she is very happy to do so and runs off to saute tons of fresh mushrooms. Cilantro, siracha, onion, and cucumber are added. Only 5 dollars and it's so big that it has to be cut in two. Comes with salad. Yummmmmm!

Hey guys! Just a suggestion, but since you have your own forum, why not make threads for different restaurants so that they're easy to search/add to, and all that. I'm just one guy talking.

Holy shiitake. This place is vegan?!? It is seriously 100 yards from my front door and I would kill for banh mi almost any day of the week.

I think I'm the only person not impressed Gracias Madre.

It really took me a couple of visits to warm up to them. I think they've kind of found their stride now. The lunch special is a great deal and the kale is amazing, but I will say that other than that their prices are unjustifiably high. And their sangria/margaritas suck.
