The afternoon that we departed San Francisco, our cousins from Salt Lake City flew in to see us. We had time for lunch at Chow restaurant on Church Street, right around the corner from where we were staying and where we used to live. Still one of our favorite restaurants. I didn’t take pictures of everything, but there are a few shots that turned out nicely and are worth sharing.
Chow has been around since 1997 and its premise is simple: high-quality, healthy, affordable comfort food. Its menu reflects the Italian and Asian immigrant heritage of San Francisco.
Hangar steak, grilled to a perfect rare and sliced thin. Served with mashed potatoes and a cherry tomato confit.
Rigatoni of spring lamb sugo. Simple, hearty, perfect for lunch before a long plane ride.
Home made peach pie with vanilla ice cream. Summer in a slice.
Classic menu item: ginger cake with pumpkin ice cream. Yum!
My cousin Alex with her son Tommy. Tommy looks mighty happy about his suacerful of ice cream!
YAY for ice cream lolol. The food looks excellent. I too enjoy the mixture of Asian and Italian found in the city.
The steak looks really good, Chris. I wonder who had that?
*sigh* Pumpkin ice cream… I’m drooling now. Looks like a wonderful place for some tasty foods!
Italian and Chinese … oh yeah, what a great combination.
i’m not a big fan of steaks, but THAT steak looks good. n the ginger cake with pumpkin ice cream? damn, looks UBBER DELISH. reminds me of foliage.
@rudyhou – This is one of my favorite steaks, anywhere. Very tasty, very well cooked.@ElusiveWords – Yes, it sure is.@murisopsis – If you ever make it to SF, look Chow up!@CurryPuffy – Umm…. guilty.@Fatcat723 – It really is a tasty pair of cuisines in which to dabble.
I will add Chow to the list of all the restaurants you have recommended. Looks like you had a wonderful meal before you flew out of San Fransisco.

@ZSA_MD – We ate at Chow a couple of three times while passing through SF. It is literally right around the corner from the friend’s house where we stayed.
