Lamb gyro plate – Halal Cart

Lamb gyro plate - Halal Cart
With basmati rice, pita, and salad. $8
Halal Cart, San Francisco CA

This is probably my favorite lunch item right now. I love their lamb gyro meat. They put a lot of white sauce on top already but I always add more, and include some of their pink hot sauce too. You can purchase extra meat but I can’t tell the difference in amount so it’s probably not worth it. This plate is so delicious though!

Lamb gyro sandwich – Halal Cart

Lamb gyro sandwich - Halal Cart
I really do love gyros. I have weird cravings for them every once and a while. I love the meat at Halal Cart, a popular lunch spot on Market Street. It’s juicy and flavorful (and probably super fatty) and just kind of melts in your mouth. I also love their squeeze bottles of hot sauce that you can douse your food with. I don’t like that they use styrofoam. Did they not know we’re in San Francisco? Sheesh! $7

Bbq combo plate – 4505 Meats

Bbq combo plate - 4505 Meats
Brisket, smoked chicken, pork spare ribs, with B&B pickles, coleslaw, potato salad, white bread. $15
4505 Meats, San Francisco CA

Mmm, this combo plate was delicious! It’s a bit pricy for a food stand at lunch, but the meats are certainly quality. I was really surprised at how tender and smoky the chicken was. It almost looked undercooked, but it was so juicy and perfect. The brisket and spare ribs were also super tasty. Noms!

Street tacos – Publico Urban Taqueria

Street tacos - Publico Urban Taqueria
Pollo asado and carne asada with salsa casera, red onion and cilantro. Each $2.29
Publico Urban Taqueria, San Francisco CA

Publico is a random food window in a shopping complex, but the food is pretty good and I love the salsa that they use. The tacos are a decent size and the price is great for a little shopping snack.

Big daddy ramen bowl – Hapa Ramen

Big daddy ramen bowl - Hapa Ramen
Pork, fried chicken, roasted vegetables, seaweed, and slow cooked egg, $14
Hapa Ramen, San Francisco CA

This ramen was good, but it wasn’t exceptional so I’m curious why it made the 7×7 list. The pork was tasty and nice and fatty. The fried chicken was bland and a bit oily. The soft boiled egg was perfectly cooked and still oozy inside. The roasted vegetables were good but tasted odd with the broth and actually made the broth taste bitter. The broth itself was a bit salty. The noodles had a great texture, and the soup was very hearty overall.

Taco de chivo – El Norteno Taco Truck

Taco de chivo - El Norteno Taco Truck
Corn tortilla with goat, salsa, onion and cilantro. Served with pickled vegetables. Each $1.75
El Norteno Taco Truck, San Francisco CA

Not many taco trucks serve goat tacos. El Norteno doesn’t serve it every day and they often run out when they do. These tacos were really tasty and the salsa was nice and spicy. Goat has a pretty bold flavor so the salsa and pickled vegetables were great in neutralizing it a bit. For less than two bucks each, these delicious tacos are a must-eat (especially if you have jury duty at the court house across the street)!
