FAVORITE LATE-NIGHT SNACK

Yuet Lee
WHERE: 1300 Stockton St. at Broadway
WHAT: The salt-and-pepper pork chop or watercress soup
INFO: (415) 982-6020
"When I just want some simple Chinese food, this is where I go. Their style is a step above Cantonese street food. It’s just really satisfying late at night."

FAVORITE MARKET

Bryan’s
WHERE: 3473 California St. between Laurel and Locust streets
WHAT: The meat counter
INFO: (415) 752-3430
"I don’t usually go to just one market, but I shop for meat at Bryan’s. They have really high quality. It’s always busy, so the product moves; you don’t have to worry how long it’s been sitting there."


FAVORITE BAR

Rye
WHERE: 688 Geary St. between Jones and Leavenworth streets
WHAT: Ordering a Sidecar
INFO: (415) 474-4448 or www.ryesf.com

WHAT: A scoop of rose-water ice cream

FAVORITE SANDWICH

Marina Submarine

WHAT: The Italiano with everything on it
INFO: (415) 921-3990
"I dream about this sandwich. When I have a rough day, I’ll reward myself with one. There’s something magic about the onions; they’re soaked so they’re not that pungent. And, the owner puts it in the oven so the bread gets crispy and the cheese melts."

WHAT: Digging into buttermilk pancakes with friends
INFO: (415) 441-5669 or www.ellassanfrancisco.com

WHAT: A drip coffee off the clover machine
INFO: (415) 641-1024 or www.ritualroasters.com
