Yamo is one of our favorite affordable lunch spots in the city, with nothing on the menu that costs more than $6.50. Not only that, you really only need to order two things from this tiny Cambodian counter spot: the Yamo house noodles with crispy garlic and cilantro, and pork, chicken, beef, or tofu, and the tea leaf salad that’s insanely spicy, but has a slow burn that won’t fully kick in for a few minutes after your first bite. This place doesn’t take cards, so make sure to bring some cash.

The plates at Al's Place in the Mission look like art, and taste pretty great too. "Best New Restaurant in the US 2015" ain't a bad calling card either.
A 40-seat, communal tasting menu that’s an awesome experience overall. This is fine dining for young people.
