Welcome to Garaje, where the beer is good, the decor super cool, the food tasty and the vibe unpretentious. Though it’s pretty much in nowhere’s land in SOMA, it’s worth checking out. The fusion place opened earlier this year and has made many food blog listicles, like best fish tacos and best burgers in San Francisco. Great beer on tap; delicious burger (sort of reminiscent of In n Out, but a little more restaurant-style and you can add a fried egg to step it up a notch) and tacos. Get the ahi – it comes with a giant hunk of perfectly seared fish. Pretty funky and a great escape from the over-hyped hustle and bustle of most other neighborhoods in the city.
