Sometimes you just get the craving for a tasty Chinese rice plate but don't want to sit in a dingy restaurant with absolutely no ambiance. The problem is these days, you often have to pay for a bit of decor, and end up paying triple for what you could have ate in that neighborhood whole in the wall. An exception to that rule is Elizas in San Francisco. With two locations – one in Pacific Heights and one in Potrero Hill, you have the option of eating a fulfilling super cheap rice plate for lunch in an attractive environment.
All the rice plates come with soup and are available Monday through Friday. The average price for one of these dishes is in the $6-$7 range and you have the option of choosing brown rice which I most usually opt for. Some favorites include the Mango Beef and Portobello Mushroom with Shrimp. It does get crowded, so get there early and snag a table before the lunch crowd starts bustling in.
Dinner is more pricey, but still affordable. Lunch at Elizas is highly recommended since it's quick, inexpensive and perfect for those longing for good Chinese food in an inviting space. I think there definitely must be some feng shui going on in there.
