Dinner for Every Palate in San Francisco

In a two-person household with diverse tastes, it can be a tall order for everyone to agree on what to eat for dinner. Is it possible to find a restaurant that satisfies the spice fiend and the picky eater, or the health nut and the comfort food lover? These five restaurants—and our suggestions for what to order—prove that the answer can be a resounding yes.

Myriad Gastropub

A Mission gastropub that checks all the boxes. Order a straightforward cheeseburger for the diner who draws within the lines, and a North African-tinged stew for someone craving faraway flavors.

Grass-fed Beef Burger

Pickled things, cheddar, MGP sauce, brioche bun, steak fries.

Moroccan Spiced Ragout

Cauliflower, corn, minty goat cheese yogurt, griddled naan.

Bamboo Asia

A perfect choice if everyone can agree on Asian food, but they just can’t agree on which kind of Asian food. Shaking beef curry satisfies that Southeast Asian craving, while a crunchy sushi roll is perfect for Japanese-leaning palates.

Shaking Beef Curry

Shaking beef, green beans, eggplant chips, cilantro, lime, avocado and coconut curry.

Tempura Crunch Roll

Tempura shrimp, seaweed salad, avocado, green onions, street crunch and yuzu ponzu.

Steak Fajita

Sliced flank steak sauteed with onions and green bell peppers. Served with housemade ranchero sauce, sour cream and warm flour tortillas.

Shrimp Po'Boy Sandwich

Grilled shrimp, lettuce, tomato, spicy mayo on French roll.
