Chinese. One of the best Chinese restaurants in San Francisco and something of a cult favorite San Francisco Chinese restaurant, R + G serves a phenomenal deep-fried Dungeness crab. The freshness is top notch for a reason just around the corner are Chinatown's famed live seafood tanks, filled in San Francisco's crab season, with live Dungeness crabs.
R & G Lounge is mostly known as that "quirky" karaoke bar, but it's also one of the best Chinese restaurants in town. So not only do you get a good laugh, you get great food. The salt-and-pepper prawns or crab and the oysters in a clay pot are very good.
Also: A lot of the best plates are not listed on the English menu so ask the waiter for help or better yet, go will a couple of friends who read Chinese.
