Chow / Park Chow: "Great food at Affordable prices" Chow / Park Chow Tip by Cruiseone2003

Chow / Park Chow, San Francisco: 7 reviews and 2 photos


Chow's is a wonderful restaurant located on Church at Market Streets in San Francisco. Chow's has the feeling of a diner from the past but with updated food. The staff is always upbeat and very knowledgeable about the menu items and glad to assist you with recommendations. No reservations are accepted but you can go next door to the Pilsner for a drink and they will come and get you when your table is ready.

Favorite Dish: I love the Spinach Salad the best even though it's not an entree. It's made with the freshest greens, walnuts, feta, berries, and a light vinaigrette. The Ginger cake is also good, a large serving of cake that sits on warm caramel, topped with whipped cream! Every entree is great!!! I enjoyed the Mahi Mahi special, a nice portion of very fresh grilled Mahi Mahi served with Mac n Cheese but not just any Mac n Cheese, Chow's is made with Truffles and Carmelized Onions and peas in a very light sauce with parmesan cheese;It's very decadent and delicious! I washed it down with a bottle of Stella Artois and a coffee with the Ginger Cake. For the Meat lovers and vegetarians Chow's did not forget about you, plenty to choose from.
Including tax and tip, my bill came to $40. My Mahi Mahi special cost $16 which for good, quality seafood is about what you would pay elsewhere. Chow's has several entrees that are around the $10-$12 range so you could easily eat for less here.
