Siren Canteen is an ideal stop after a Stinson Beach hike, and a meal here induces the kind of willful amnesia that people talk about after having a kid. You forget the saga of actually getting out there (which includes windy roads and bumper-to-bumper traffic) and block out the nine-mile hike where you ran out of water in the parking lot, because it’s the beachside shack at the end that’s always worth the trouble. Mostly because it’s fighting the good fight for the continued preservation of cheese fries amidst the ever more-healthy menus of SF. This place also serves burgers, quesadillas, burritos, and shakes.
