This is some crazy asian hip movie crap happening, thank you San Francisco, Jane and Frank.

Toyose is where Frank and Jane took me right when I landed in San Francisco. Of course its a hidden Korean Village Bar inside, literally, a garage. Serves Korean bar food, we had Kim Chee Fried Rice, Korean Fried Chicken Wings, and of course Duk Bok Gi aaaaaannnnddd shots of Soju. I felt like I was going to die, but it was of course all amazing and delicious and hit the spot. A little too well.

San Lucas Pizza

Just in case you missed my post on Serious Eats, this is pretty much the craziest pizza I've ever had. And the wildest thing is that it's actually good. On Mckean between 17th and 18th, they also sell phone cards and cigarettes.

I kind of expected maybe some canned jalapenos and olives slapped onto a pizza. But this things have real carnitas and al pastor meat drizzled with homemade hot sauce and garnished with cilantro and fresh limes for squeezing. The slices are huge, folded over each one is about as much food as a giant burrito, for 3 bucks.

San Lucas is open 'til 1am on saturdays and only 1 block north of a certain infamous after hours bar. Maybe just stop here and take home some pizza instead of something you'll regret.
