4. Lol贸 974 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110 (The Mission)

The most notable thing about this Mission Mexican is the vivid and eccentric interior, and for some reason, it makes sense that their tacos are as creative and untraditional as the decor. The panko avocado taco is a crispy and creamy dream and the fish tacos are good no matter what the catch of the day is. Lol贸 is a great option for a group dinner because it's totally possible to order everything on the menu to share.

8. ICHI Sushi + NI Bar 3282 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110 (Bernal Heights)

Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar is a sushi and sake oasis in the Outer Mission outfitted with a giant mural that tells you how to eat sushi. Ni Bar operates much like an izakaya with sake, shochu, and small plates like yuzu chicken wings and miso eggplant. Ichi, on the other hand, keeps the San Francisco ethos in mind with a sustainable and seasonal menu of raw fish, but doesn't skimp on anything delicious. The chef's choice is one of the best omakase deals in the city.
