We tried famous fried chicken. It was like in KFC, only for 10 times higher price. Very dissapoiting! Portion was very big, that we could not finish it (due to poor taste even did not want to finish).

Went here for dinner with some work colleagues, wines and beer selections were outstanding. I had the fried chicken and it was very good, crispy, moist on the inside. Very nice venue

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
