Cheap eats for college student

JustJake | Dec 13, 2009 05:55 AM

My 18 yo son is heading to the city in early January during break. He and two friends (girls) are visiting a friend who attends the SF Academy of Art, which I always thought was in the Upper Sunset, but appears to be on Montgomery St.

As he will be on a budget, can anyone provide me with a laundry list of inexpensive yet good food, especially in Chinatown and the Mission (which are fairly proximous to his 'base').

Keep in mind that he will be living on a Rachel like $30/day (including commutation).

Thanks in advance.
