One of the best things about travelling as a Yelper in the USA is that you have a bank of ready made friends in each city! Dorothy C had kindly taken me to the Asian Art Museum on my trip to SF last year and she offered to expand my art horizons at SFMOMA this year
We therefore looked for a lunch option in close proximity and Dorothy's friend, Ed U suggested Tin on Howard St.
Despite us both starting at Powell St BART station, I think I took the slightly less 'colourful' route to the restaurant! Teddy and I recognised Dorothy coming in the opposite direction to us and she told us about some interesting characters and shops she had encountered along the way!
The restaurant was busy with lunch service but we were seated quickly and the food came out impressively fast. Nice friendly ambiance providing the perfect atmosphere for us to catch up
Dorothy went with a sandwich and I tried the Hu Tieu noodles in broth - xa-xiu pork, chicken & shrimp, ground pork in garlic-chicken broth. It was lovely and perfect portion size for lunch. Deep flavour in the broth with enough variety of stuff to munch with each mouthful to keep it interesting
My limeade could have done with a bit more sugar syrup but was obviously freshly squeezed
The bonus was the very reasonable cost - $10 per person
Dorothy and I were fans!
