south san francisco stroll

ed | Apr 27, 200401:22 PM

my normal ssf badminton game was cut short yesterday, so passing by ssf downtown in the lovely weather inspired me to do a storefront stroll. i haven't tried any of these places, but would love to hear anyone's input on them

1 - baccanal. the menu looked almost comically standard. each meat was presented in one classic prep only. not that that would necessarily be bad, but it was so predictable i chuckled. the wine list wasn't huge, but did contain some interesting bottles with some age on them. mid 90's reds, imported and domestic. service appeared gracious.

2 - old italian joint. forgot the name. it was surprisingly full on an earlyish monday eve, so i peeked in and found a lot of seniors. they looked happy, but the place looked pretty old school.

3 - grand palace. quite large, looked newly remodeled, and grand indeed. looks well set up for banquets and dim sum.

4 - argentinian joint. i'm not good with names. it was across from town hall. small plain cafe, but the menu had charrascura for $16 a head. but closed mondays.

5 - a few small chinese joints, ranging from a bad looking steam table lunch joint, to a potentially interesting 'normal' neighborhood chinese place

6 - a variety of latin american places, ranging from suspect canned frijoles refritos combo plate places to potentially authentic.

7 - a breakfast counter

8 - the sanitary bakery. i kid you not, that's the name. apparently there for decades.

9 - anything else?

so, any comments or tips?
