Forkin' Frisco: Diversity on display in Western Addition eateries

What’s arguably one of the city’s most demographically mixed neighborhoods, the Western Addition has become a go-to spot for its food and nightlife. From the jazz-influenced history of the Fillmore to the changing culture of Divisadero Street, Western Addition has morphed itself into a culinary haven boasting diverse food options.

Sweet Tooth

Bumzy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

1460 Fillmore St.

Though their peanut butter and oatmeal cookies are delectable, it’s their classic chocolate chip cookies, with a slightly gooey middle and crunchy edges, which have a melt-in-your-mouth quality, that will have you coming back for more.

Cheap Eats

Zazang Korean Noodle

2340 Geary Blvd.

Despite its funky, out-of-place interior, the high quality of food establishes this place as an authentic noodle house. For only $7.95, you can try their Jajangmyeon, which is a Korean comfort food consisting of thick wheat noodles covered in an irresistible black bean sauce.


1300 on Fillmore

1300 Fillmore St.

When stepping into this aptly named restaurant, it feels like stepping into a rich cultural history of what the Fillmore District was like before urban renewal. With live jazz music playing in the lounge, the mood is always lively, which makes this a perfect date spot.


Eddie’s Cafe

800 Divisadero St.

This unassuming hole-in-the-wall looks modest on the outside, and well, modest on the inside too. Eddie’s is a low-key, classic diner with looks that compliment its menu of simple, all-American fare made with real soul.
