Dr. Josh Berd, San Francisco’s Cosmetic Dentist reviews his favorite places to visit around his office in the Inner Richmond.
The Inner Richmond has sprouted from an overlooked quaint neighborhood to a bustling multicultural center for inexpensive eateries, unique shops and hangouts. Here you’ll find popular Burmese and Vietnamese restaurants, Chinese dim sum bakeries, and one of SF’s best bookstores, just to name a few.
So the next time you’re headed over to see us for a dental visit, check out some of these restaurants and shops:
Good Luck Dim Sum: If you see locals and regulars lining up to grab fresh shrimp dumplings and BBQ pork buns then you’re in the right place. This spot is a great bargain bite. Grab some to go and head to park Presidio for a stroll.
Grocery Stores: Here you can find a large selection of exotic fruits such as mangos, dragon fruit, papaya, jackfruit, lychee, kumquat, and durian. Sort through mounds of oranges to find the ripe and delicious ones.
Green Apple Books: Enter here and you’re greeted by a gnome and a large selection of popular and hard to find fiction, magazines, and music. The staff writes personal reviews of their favorite books to help peak your interest in some new literature.
Toy Boat Desert Cafe: In addition to your favorite childhood ice creams flavors, this shop also crafts great sandwiches and smoothies, and sells Pez dispensers! They’ve recently added low-fat frozen yogurt (which contains cavity-fighting probiotics).
Park Life: It’s a store of innovative design, apparel and books. It’s also a revolving gallery of local artists. If you’re searching for a one of a kind gift for a dear friend, this is the place to find it.
Burma Superstar: This popular local restaurant offers unique flavors of Burmese cuisine. Try Burma’s Rainbow salad which features 22 distinct ingredients…your taste buds will thank you.
Q Restaurant: Made famous when featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Q’s truly serves up delicious American food.
