Soul Food in San Francisco

My boyfriend and I are planning on visiting friends in San Francisco. We are kinda foodies, and SF happens to be one of our favorite places to eat. The entire city, yes. So I devoted the last few hours to yelping “soul food”, “sushi” “deli” and “cheap chinese food” restaurants in San Francisco. (Seafood is too obvious, we’ll address that later).

Our go-to soul food restaurant is Gussie’s. If you are a fan of Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles in L.A. or Amy Ruth’s in N.Y., then you’ve gotta try Gussie’s.

Gussie’s takes their waffles to a whole. ‘notha. level. The waffles are made from sweet potatoes. It’s true! They also have sweet potato syrup. Lip-smackin’, finger-lickin’ good.

The sides are also quite tasty. I’m not gonna lie, they are not the BEST ever. But they are good. They show up all sticky and overflowing in their little dishes, and you have to eat every last savory bite. And the last time we ate there, the owner himself came over, struck up a conversation, and had us try their banana pudding for free! How friendly of him. So all things together, Gussie’s is a big win. The neighborhood is slightly seedy, but doesn’t that add to the charm of your favorite soul food restaurant? Go Gussie’s.
