Hot Night SF Dining

The rare warm night in San Francisco is perfect for dinner at the Bambuddha Lounge. 601 Eddy Street. It's like being transported to Southeast Asia for a subtropical evening. You can even have drinks poolside. The music is terrific and the lighting, soft. Service is friendly and welcoming. The food is tasty. We started with the Lemongrass Mojito and could easily drink them all night, but the Austrian Grüner Veltliner was a great food match: Warm Shredded Vietnamese Duck Confit Salad wrapped in butter lettuce leaves and garnished with a spicy Hoisin sauce and thinly sliced cucumber ($10); Malaysian "Lollipop" Lamb chops with a crisp cucumber, melon, jicama salad ($18), Horapa Basil Chicken Breast on Black Rice with Coconut Mango Chili Puree ($14) and for dessert: Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream with Coconut Macaroons ($8). For those Young At Heart: this is a great date place!
