Bernal Heights [San Francisco]

So after decades in the East Bay we took the plunge and are now in SF. Please help with some go-to staples for lunch/dinner?

Below are the places that were my go-to's in Oakland. What are the equivalents? SF Noob here.

Nido all the time for casual but delicious dinner, and lunch too
Haven for something a bit fancier, but still down to earth
Cactus was my go-to taqueria
Sierra Deli/Genovas/Bakesale Betty's for sandwiches
Golden Lotus for vegan vietnamese (sadly I think this might be unique to Oakland)
Shangri-La Vegan
Chai Thai Noodles (have heard Lers Ros is similar with good northern thai dishes?)
Shan Dong for delivery chinese
China Village for ma la (tried Z&Y but it's not as good. we'll make the drive; can't see finding a replacement for China Village)
Same with Miss Ollies - we'll make the drive
Saul's/Sunrise Deli for falafels

Really going to miss the east bay, and will be back for many many meals because I just can't see finding replacements for these and other favorites. But, would like to have some go-to's in the neighborhood here as well. Help a fellow hounder out! Thanks.
