Some seek comfort when they go out, others crave a touch of theater. A recent discussion on Chowhound toted up the weirdest, most interesting restaurant dishes in San Francisco. Naturally, deliciousness was also a factor.

• Shabu shabu-style "lamb eggs" (pictured, front right—think Rocky Mountain Oysters) at Old Mandarin Islamic.
• Skewered chicken hearts and skin at Nojo.
• Fluorescent green sorbet made from coconut and kale at Scream.
