Summary of The Day: Little Saigon is home to San Francisco's Vietnamese population and some of the city's best places to find delicious and exotic Southeast Asian food. Vietnamese cuisine features a combination of 5 fundamental taste elements: spicy (metal), sour (wood), bitter (fire), salty (water) and sweet (Earth). Each dish has a distinctive flavor made from combining these elements. Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of oil, and reliance on herbs and vegetables. With the balance between fresh herbs and meats and a selective use of spices to reach a fine taste, Vietnamese food is considered one of the healthiest cuisines worldwide.
The Tendernob is the area between Nob Hill proper and Little Saigon, but until fairly recently, it was just considered the Tenderloin. Here you will find old and well established fine dining restaurants, next door to Greek kitchens, Israeli markets and Napoli Pizza parlors. One block has a hookah lounge amidst several Pakistani restaurants, all in buildings that are historic landmarks. Yemeni, Moroccan, Ethiopian, Turkish and Soul Food, can all be found in this diverse eating area. The establishments here are small and so intimate that the kitchens are visible to the patrons who are seated within earshot of the chef and his staff.
This ever-changing neighborhood has a delightful assortment of eateries which creates a dynamic and surprisingly wonderful food tour. Join renowned food-blogger Dan Chew, or globetrotter David Killian on a trek through this unexpected and compelling neighborhood on a food tour of epic variety as you discover new foods and flavors you'll never want to forget.
