There’s a new contender for best easy lunch in the Mission: Bobop. The counter-service Korean spot specializes in yubu chobop, or handheld tofu skin pockets filled with perfectly vinegared rice and topped with flavor-packed meats or vegetables. While getting any of the dozen-ish chobop is a foolproof path to lunch success, you’d be missing out if you didn’t go for the miso pork, which explodes with umami and is crowned with spicy-sweet pickled jalapeño, or tender chopped-up bulgogi. Ordering one chobop (or a set of three or five) will leave you cheerier than you were when you walked in, as will simply soaking in the colorful space with a neon purple “Good Vibes Only” sign and music videos playing in back. There's also boba and canned drinks, plus Turtle Chips, seaweed, and banchan you can take to go.
