Where to Eat in Patricia Unterman's Pacific Heights

Sara Deseran | March 11, 2013 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

1. Troya

"This is a wonderful Turkish restaurant. Their baklava is the best I've ever tasted, and they make flatbreads that are out of this world. Their lahmacun is like a Turkish-style pizza, with a dough that's so crisp and multi-layered. And their eggplant flatbread is exceptional." 2125 Fillmore St. (Near California St.), 415-563-1000

2. Bun Mee

"Even though I like Saigon Sandwich in the Tenderloin, this modern Vietnamese banh mi place has flavors that are true. The Sloppy Joe is good, and I like the catfish banh mi very much. It's hot and crisp and sweet, with a little red curry aioli, perfect for a quick bite." 2015 Fillmore St. (Near Pine St.), 415-800-7696

3. Nijiya Market

"OK, it's not exactly Pac Heights, but it's close enough. This great Japanese market has perfectly balanced ponzu that really tastes like yuzu. As for the food to go, I get the vegetarian sushi. It's always fresh because they constantly refill the case—I'm sure people live on it." 1737 Post St. (Near Webster St.), 415-563-1901
