Any place new and wonderful in the Castro? [San Francisco]

I'll be serving my annual ten day sentence in Noir City at the end of the month. Need recommendations for restaurants/takeout for lunch and dinner in the neighborhood of the Castro Theater, preferably quick and easy.

I neglected to post about the new places I tried last year, so away we go.

Still like:
Zapata Tacqueria - very good pozole and burritos
Rossi's Deli - good Italian deli sandwiches and an unusual selection of international cookies (Walker's, et. al.)

Good enough:
Firewood - pasta is good enough, salads better. Haven't tried the chicken because too messy for this event.

New places I tried:
Kasa - I enjoyed it. Probably not authentic, but the food was spicy and very savory and fast. I'll go here this year too.
Brandy Ho - Went here for Chinese NY. It was pretty good, but don't care for the dark atmosphere.
BiRite Creamery - Not my favorite ice cream, but did enjoy the Dainty Gentleman sundae (lavender ice cream plus)
New Orleans place down the block on Market - OK and now closed. They had po-boys on the weekend but I never got back to try them.

Plan to try:
Mollie Stone for prepared foods
