Tenderloin

The Tenderloin, the TL, the 'loin...whatever you call it, this neighborhood has one of the most diverse collections of ethnic eateries in the City! You may have heard that it is dirty, sketchy or even dangerous, but this is clearly a neighborhood in transition. The same things were said about the Mission District 20 years ago, and look at it now! Explore this exciting area now before gentrification strips the TL of its character.

Many of the restaurants here are owned by and cater primarily to first generation immigrants. You may sample really authentic Thai, Korean, Turkish, Egyptian, Indian, Pakistani, Central Asian, Laotian or Vietnamese food at a place you may have normally walked or driven right past.

Meet the people creating these fantastic dishes which we have carefully edited for you, and hear their stories. While we may try some of the "Greatest Hits", we promise to delight you with something new and undiscovered as well.

You will also get a chance to wander the streets with a local who will point out some of the City's most impressive architectural gems hidden in plain sight. Impress your friends with your tales of adventure, bravery and gluttony when you return from you very own personalized Tenderloin tour!
