Museum restaurants can be hit or miss, but this one, in the Asian Art Museum, is a hit - we’d go back even if we weren’t also checking out an exhibit in the museum itself. It’s a counter-service spot with a menu featuring things like prawn noodles, tomato soup with coconut curry cream, and a Korean fried chicken sandwich on a steamed bao bun. There are small tables around the bright dining room, plus one large communal table at the center, and while a lot of the guests seem to be museum-goers or employees, if you work in the area, stopping by for a quick fried chicken sandwich is not a bad idea.

Saigon Sandwich’s Sandwiches are $4 and pack more punch than most of the city’s pricier offerings. The best cheap lunch in the game.
The Grove in Hayes Valley has a huge, but sort of bland bland food menu. That being said, it's healthy-ish and good to keep in your back pocket.
