3. Ramen Izakaya Goku 3232 16th St, San Francisco, CA 94103 (The Mission)

From the team responsible for Men Oh Ramen, Shabuway, and Waraku comes, you guessed it, another ramen spot for your slurping pleasure. These guys obviously have the rich soup game down, so it’s no wonder that the spicy tonkotsu is one of our favorite bowls in the Mission. You can also find izakaya here, so save room for lots of fried seafood small plates (like octopus balls and squid legs), monkfish liver, and hamachi sashimi and wash it all down with a nice cold Sapporo.

4. The Beer Hall 1 Polk St, San Francisco, CA 94102 (Upper Market)

This craft-beer bar and bottle shop is tucked inside a luxury apartment building at Market and 10th, but that’s truly the only thing not to like about it. There are 20 beers on draft (almost all of which are from California), but don’t worry, it’s not like you’ll have had them all before; these guys focus on limited edition, seasonal or specialty brews. Plus, there are over 200 bottles you can buy and take home, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a bunch of stuff you’ve never tried. Grab a booth if you’re staying a while (you are) and just try not to take a selfie in front of the wall covered in thousands of colorful bottle caps.
