Unexpected restaurant finds in San Francisco

I gave you the sweets of San Francisco, now here are some savory spots we tried on this spontaneous weekend trip. I always go to my favorites, like Bar Tartine, but we ventured to some new spots thanks to Hawaii expat Jocelyn Lee and just some old fashioned “being in the right place at the right time.” Here’s a look at Lolò, Nopa, Maykadeh Persian Cuisine, and King of Thai Noodle House.

We stopped for a quick lunch at Loló, a contemporary restaurant that features "the flavors of Jalisco, the western Pacific Mexican district encompassing Guadalajara."

Also, if you happen to be in San Francisco next June, take in the North Beach Festival. Here’s a very quick look at what we saw:

The North Beach Festival is one of the country's oldest outdoor festivals — this was its 60th year, and it spans a few blocks.
