7 Places to Eat After Hardly Strictly 

Wednesday, Oct 2 2013

It's getting dark and cold, you've been drinking all day (especially if you followed our bartender-written punch recipes in our pull-out feature) and you've had your fill of music and festival food. Here's where to head while you wait for Muni to calm down. A.R.

the Richmond

Hard Knox Cafe: This Southern spot is known for its fried chicken and waffles; the menu also includes jambalaya, crawfish étouffée, fried catfish, smothered pork chops, and other stick-to-your-ribs items. 2448 Clement, 752-3770,

Spices!/Spices II: Once the fog rolls in, you'll be craving some of the face-meltingly hot dishes at this Taiwanese mini-chain. 294 Eighth Ave., 752-8884 291 Sixth Ave., 752-8885.

Tia Margarita: Pretty much your greasy, refried-beans-topped-with-melted-cheese kind of Mexican food, plus strong margaritas, vinyl booths, and neighborhood-y vibe. 300 19th Ave., 752-9274,

the Sunset

King of Noodles: Soup-filled Shanghai dumplings, noodle soups, and other Chinese specialties can be found at this no-frills joint from the owners of Kingdom of Dumpling on Taraval. 1639 Irving, 566-8318.

Pho Phu Quoc: Pho comes in flavors like curry chicken noodle, chicken satay, and standard beef at this Vietnamese spot, also known for its imperial rolls, five-spice chicken, and cheap prices. 1816 Irving, 661-8869,

San Tung: Good luck getting a table at this popular Chinese restaurant, but if you're very lucky or very persistent, an order of the dry-fried chicken wings makes it all worth it. 1031 Irving, 242-0828,

Social Kitchen & Brewery: Head to this gastropub for on-site brewed beers and pub grub like mac-and-cheese, Brussels sprout chips, burgers, and pork belly sliders. 1326 Ninth Ave., 681-0330,
