Lunch at a small, clean place just a half-block south of MIssion. Order at the counter. After a very short wait, we got a very ample plate of truly delicious food (veggie sampler plus beef tibs). We ordered medium spicy and it wasn't hot enough...More

Fresh, fresh, fresh with 3 levels of spiciness. The three of us devoured the tasty siga tibs, Doro wot and vegetable variety platter. A great find with metered parking nearby.

South of Market Streets keeps changing. The cityscape has been getting a facelift at a glacial pace, but my friends and I were able to dine at a humble cafe called Moya. We ordered a veggie platter with doro tibs, which is a sautéed chicken...More

I like Ethiopian food. This is something I look for whenever I get to a place. Moya is very close to our office in 9th street.

This is a small restaurant run by a woman who loves to cook. It is still very authentic and has not become a large commercial space. You can ask for mild, medium or spicy food. Only complaint would be that the business hours are very...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
