The only thing that a free market does succussfully is popularize underrepersented enterprizes. Since
SanFran has very little good Indian, no average Middle Eastern , zero Bagels, nebishticka (few) delicitessans, and four french bistros, it seems there would be high demand for one to open. Especialy in a city world renowned for its alleged food savoifaire.
After trying Ali Baba's and Truly Mediteranian (indeed) each once more , I became throurougly positive San Fran must simply not know what real White meat or tender lamb Shwarma is like. My turkey shwarma was sliced off the main unit, then detrimentaly chopped and fried in grease to hide the poor quality of the meat.
From Taqoria Cancun to El Forroloto I have tried desperatly to find ONE SINGLE blistered flavorfull, beanless So-cal burritoe. Do you guys realy prefer Cancun, to any Roberto's in SoCal? If your do, then it still seems that there would be enough nay sayers to warrent the opening of a Roberto's here.
I do not believe there is simply no demand. Even if locals grew up knowing good Hakka, but no good bagles, there are still a few transplants in the city. It seems that anyone who has been to Montreal would desire good shwarma, or anyone who has been to New York would know good Indian. I never did like capitalism much; now it has even lost its bourgoisie palatability.
