1. Mr. Pollo 2823 Mission St, San Francisco , CA 94110

What was once Lil' Pollo's grown into a full service spot in The Mission. The now a real-deal, albeit still tiny and cash-only Columbian restaurant, serves a market-driven menu featuring different riffs on traditional Latin American street fare (gourmet arepas) in addition to rotating seasonal seafood and poultry options. At just $25 for a four-course tasting menu, Mr. Pollo offers one of the cheapest tasting menus in the city. Be forewarned, though: the restaurant doesn't have much in the way of a social media presence, so instead of trying to peruse the menu online before you go, just stop in and see what's cooking.
