Everything about this restaurant is bewildering and slightly tongue-in-cheek. The name, for instance, is and isn’t a joke at the same time: this truly is the most expensive restaurant in Galicia, the historical region Lviv is in, but only for those who haven’t got their hands on the 90% discount card at sister establishment Dim Legend.

a basement tavern, designed to look like a kryyivka (underground bunker) Kryyivkas were used by partisan soldiers enlisted in the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. But, you need to pronounce the password if you want to get in... As soon as you call out the patriotic slogan «Slava Ukrayini!» (Glory to Ukraine!), the door is opened by a stern-looking watchman, who offers you a shot of medovukha (honey wine), and asks you very seriously whether there are any «Muscovites, turncoats, or Commies» in your group… Then, you are allowed to enter the basement tavern, which is designed to look like an underground bunker. Military accoutrements, and portraits of soldiers decorate the walls, food is served in original tin army pans – an atmosphere that will plunge you into those days when Ukrainian insurgents lived underground and fought against the invaders of their country.

Popular Dim Sum restaurant. Bustling restaurant delivering a varied menu of dum sum faves right from the kitchen to the table. - Google
Amazing dim sum. If the bland peach exterior of this restaurant doesn’t entice you, trust that a juicy treasure lies beneath: some of the Bay’s best dim sum offered at lunch. Skipping the carts for a made-to-order approach, the sizable menu groans with winners, including flaky, buttery baked pork buns, sautéed pea shoots delectably flavored with garlic, and one of the best egg custard tarts you’re ever likely to taste—even if you’ve visited Hong Kong. Throw in above-average tea options and a sizable vegetarian menu, and it's no wonder that this tiny gem draws legendary waits on weekend mornings. Just don't turn tail and head for the other Hong Kong Lounge further down Geary-despite their names, the two aren't affiliated, and the food isn't quite the same. READ MORE ->
Tucked into an alcove of the unprepossessing Parc 55 hotel, this restaurant won’t win any awards in the décor department—it’s spare and casual, with tables set with chopstick canisters and bowls of chili oil. But when it comes to delivering authentically layered, fiery Thai flavor with a produce-driven northern California flair, it has no equal. Kin Khao's menu conjures up dishes from across Thailand and is a virtual homage to local purveyors. Imagine a meaty and rich five spice duck noodle soup infused with duck bones and stocked with bok choy , noodles, and delightfully tender duck leg confit; or a deliciously fresh take on som tum, with julienned green papaya tossed with golden tomatoes, long beans, dried shrimp, and crushed red chili. More traditional options may include classic pad kee mao showcasing wide, flat noodles stir-fried with a potent mixture of ground pork bits, bell pepper, onion, and holy basil. Needless to say, those avoiding spicy food or craving plain old pad Thai should look elsewhere. But, if you're craving a vibrant and zesty meal, then strap in for a wild and enticing ride. Come dessert, try the black rice pudding served warm and with myriad toppings. READ MORE ->
