A Dogpatch Favorite: Kitchenette

I wanted to share one of my very favorite lunch spots in the Dogpatch. It's called Kitchenette, and is one of those places that can only exist in San Francisco. Their tagline is "spontaneous organic covert nourishment" and they serve local, seasonal, organic food out of a loading dock on Illinois street, only feet from the water. The menu changes every day, and everything is as delicious as it is simple. You can also get a great lunch for under $10, which is rare in SF.

I went there on Thursday and got the summer vegetable sandwich. It was described as "cucumber, tomato, avocado, olive oil fried peppers, onions" on their simple and easy website, which updates the menu every day, and cost $7. It was heavenly! The sourdough loaf, which was baked fresh by Acme Bread was a meal in itself, but all the veggies inside were ripe and wonderful, especially the heirloom tomatoes, which were so red they were almost purple, and the generous helping of avocado.

I am lucky enough to be two blocks from this delicious spot, but it's worth a quick drive to check it out. They are open from 11:30 to 1:30 and are cash only. They say supply is limited so come early, but I've never been there when they have run out of something.

Check out their website at for menus and more info. YUM!
