No matter what cuisine strikes your fancy, this guide to restaurants in San Francisco will keep both your stomach and wallet happy!

For a traditional American brunch, check out Delancey Street Restaurant. Dine on delicious Belgian waffles and eggs Benedict, with most breakfast prices ranging from $7-10. The portions are known for being generous, so come hungry!

At Marina Subs, the subs are so big you can even split one with a friend! Known for heaps of fresh avocado and “special sauce,” you can get your order to go and enjoy it near the water.

In the mood for a unique hot dog? From duck to wild boar sausage, Rosamunde Sausage Grill is the place to try a dog like you’ve never had before. With toppings like sauerkraut, wasabi mustard, and curry ketchup, make yours a one-of-a-kind treat.

Enjoy a tea leaf salad, fiery chicken with tofu, and cardamom cinnamon rice all at Burma SuperStar. Call ahead to reserve a table at this happenin’ place and bring along a group so you can all order different dishes and share! Be sure and top off your dinner with some lychee sangria or ginger lemonade.

If you’ve never tried Ethiopian food, Axum Cafe is a perfect introduction. Try out the Vegetarian Platter to share and get a little taste of everything, then pair it with some of their delightful on-tap beers or Tej honey wine.

    Marina Subs and Burma Superstar are two of my favorite restaurants! When I was in high school, we used to race to Marina Subs on our 35 minute lunch period. It was always packed but those subs were worth being a few minutes late to class.
