Trip Info

Uncover hidden restaurants and alleyway epicurean venues on this Japanese food adventure. Tucked away in a corner of San Francisco, Japantown is home to hip, young artisans who are pushing boundaries in modern Asian cuisine. But there are still plenty of traditionalists keeping them honest, including dozens of veteran restaurant owners who produce authentic delicacies handed down through the generations. Experience one of San Fran’s most culturally-rich, historic food communities first hand and chow down on old-school favourites with a twist.

Let your taste buds run wild with the smorgasbord of flavors you’ll experience here: sweet potato lattes from YakiniQ Café; onigiri (rice balls); okonomiyaki (Japanese frittata); sweet and savory mochi from one of Japantown’s first businesses, Benkyodo Confections; and authentic Masala dosa with chutney from DOSA on Fillmore. After the tour, you’ll be the expert on where to find the goods in this neighborhoo

Your adventure awaits!
