Torta Boos Voni (aka Bugs Bunny)- 5127 Mission
The tortas are insanely good and bigger than your head. They're Mexico City-style, which means huge tortas with crazy combinations. The Cubana comes with: milanesa, pierna, ham, bacon, chicken, a fried egg, salchicha, chorizo, jalapeno, lettuce, tomato, queso fresco, and avocado.
Cordon Bleu- 1574 California St @ Polk
It's Vietnamese, but it's not the usual stuff. It's a tiny place with maybe 8 stools at the counter and a couple of tables. All they serve is 5-spice chicken, fried imperial rolls, "shish kebab" (grilled, marinated pork slices), country cabbage salad, and rice with meat sauce. They're all amazing. Get the #5 and you get all of those items together on one plate for like $8. For most people, it's enough food for 2 meals.
