After finishing some business at San Francisco City Hall, my friend and I checked the time to be 11:30 am. Its time for an early lunch! We decided to go over to Larkin and Turk Street, where the "Little Saigon" Vietnamese strip is located for some Pho!. Its a few blocks from City Hall, the Federal and State government buildings.
There were a few restaurant and we walked into "Mangosteen" right on the corner of Larkin Street. This corner restaurant is a little cozy and small. It sits about 40 person in a tightly knitted community. We were given a fine, clean menu that order by number. The server came and we gave our orders by number.
We didn't have any beverages, except for lemon water. The orders, beef combination noodle and pork and rice were quickly served. Then more people came in for their lunch. Seems like the Federal, State and City employees are coming in for their lunches at this tiny restaurants.
The bill came to about $18 for two of us. Not bad for a quick and early lunch. Try this place if one is ever in this neighborhood visiting the Asian Arts Museum, or attending Federal or State courts!
