Cha Cha Cha
At Cha Cha Cha, do not be discouraged when the host announces it will be an hour for a table. It is worth the wait. Authentic Santeria altars and strange artifacts adorn the walls. World music transports you to a foreign land. The Calamari with Garlic Aioli, Spicy Roasted Potatoes, and Grilled Plantains are highly recommended. There is another location at 2327 Mission Street.
the line is always a turnoff!
The food - the shrimp (curry base?) is pretty good as is their sangria...but pretty much anything is good from this cajun place. But the price is more on the moderate side and a fun place to go w/ friends for drinks, tapas(sizes?) as long as you plan to hang out for a bit!
Sunday afternoon walk & run, conservatory of flower -- the Cha Cha Cha. Great afternoon of sunshine and good food. Try the daily special. The pan fryed trout was done perfectly and placed on a bed of salad. Fresh, tasty and a great value for a lunch. Try it. Lots of colorful people on the streets and in the park. Service at Cha Cha Chae was just OK, but most of us know what we want. Order a beer and just enjoy the atomosphere.
Ignore the grit and grime of the neighborhood- hey, it's the Haight. Don't park in the Mcdonald's parking lot as desparate as you may be- too many drunks and homeless folks find it convenient to leave their unwanted meals there.
If you're solo, go to Cha Cha Cha. If you're sad because your wife is about to leave you, go to Cha cha cha where the Sangria will make your worries go away real quick.
The food is forgetable but you don't come here for that. This is a fun, non pre-tentious alternative to the Marina scene. Peak hours are between 7 and midnight? Barely breathing room so don't go if you're clostrophobic (sic).
