Richmond

Essentials
Geary is where the action is in this ethnically diverse zone. Avoid problematic parking by taking the 38-Geary (the most-used city bus). Geary and 25th is the center of the SF Russian immigrant community; score pierogi at a grocery and shop for cheap fruits and veggies at the plentiful Asian markets.

Sundries/Entertainment
This area is primarily an eating destination as the presence of various immigrant communities has led to numerous sushi, Vietnamese, and Russian options. Popular Kabuto serves fresh well-presented sushi. Aziza is a world-class -- and affordable -- destination Moroccan restaurant with a Michelin star. Afterwards, satisfy your sweet tooth at Creations Dessert.

San Francisco Brewcraft
The guys at the San Francisco Brewcraft are so helpful that when I complimented them on their in-house Meade horn, (a personal possession of one of their co-workers), they actually almost called said co-worker to see if they could sell it to me. These guys care about beer, and are not trying to rip anyone off. They didn't even seem irritated when they realized that all I was going to buy was a little $7 root beer making kit. The place is crammed with barrels of grains and bottling supplies, and they eagerly offer advice to anyone who is interested. They'll even grind the malts you buy for free, and even though I don't know anything about malts, I do know what free means. Definitely a great gift idea or field trip for you and the ubiquitous relative who only cares about golf and beer.

Ton Kiang
Yes, the rumors about the long waits are true. But any true dim-sum head knows how to deal. Besides, our wait was a painless twenty minutes, and we wound up at a cozy four-top, rather than taking the places of three recently-departed contestants in the banquet version of musical chairs that leaves so many enthusiasts flustered when reaching across strangers’ plates for chili and soy sauce. Neophytes will find the pictographic menu helpful, and dishes that didn’t seem to make it around the room were quickly brought from the back after a simple request. Two standouts that less frequently make their way into the limelight were the shortribs and the Chinese doughnut, an eggy puff—moist like a popover. Kiang’s was not the cheapest dim-sum experience, and there were no carts, but Kiang’s was among the cleanest dim-sum restaurants I have dined in.
