SoMa and its surrounding area is home to some amazing restaurants – but best of all are the ethnic ones where you can sample treats and tastes from the world over. But which are the best ethnic restaurants around SoMa? Our new blog has all the answers.
Kicking off our blog on the best ethnic restaurants around SoMa is Cuisine of Nepal at 3486 Mission Street. The focus here is Himalayan/Nepalese and is as authentic as you can get! We sampled the Nagala Sya (a chicken curry), the Chana Saag (a spinach/garbanzo curry) and the Poleko Machha (a salmon platter) and couldn’t be more pleased. It was all really delicious – especially if you like your food spicy.
Next up on our blog on the best ethnic restaurants around SoMa is Amawele’s South African Kitchen over at 101 Spear Street. Named for their owners/twin sisters (Amawele means “the Twins”) Pam and Wendy who grew up in Durban, South Africa, you can expect nothing short of authentic and tasty in every bite at Amawele’s. We sampled the Bunny Chow, the Slap Chips, and their Durban Curry Roti (they have vegetarian options here), and loved everything we tasted. You will too.
Rounding out our blog on the best ethnic restaurants around SoMa is Pushkin over at 380 Bush Street in the International Food Court where you can go for your Russian/Ukrainian fix. Open Mon-Fri from 11am-2:30pm, you can get the most delicious Pirojki here (they’re cooked, stuffed buns). Choose from chicken, sausage, mushroom, spinach, apple and even beef and cheddar, lentil, or potato and mushroom – their Pirojki are phenomenal! Perhaps you prefer a Borsch soup (beet, cabbage, potato and beef in broth) or even dumplings (they range from salmon to beef).
