Visited for lunch with a co-worker at her suggestion. Neighborhood place with friendly service and good selection of food to try. This time I had the calamari. Need to visit again!

The jerk chicken is simply one of the best in SF for the last decades. The Caribbean breakfast menu has too much to describe. Good prices and awesome fun atmosphere.

I love their red snapper and jerk chicken with rice and beans. The red snapper is so flavorful and the staff are cool. There's seating outside as well. There's no other place like it in SF. If you crave Caribbean flavors, you must go here!...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
