Delicious in SF
As part of our annual show of art inspired by food and drink, Delicious, we thought we would spotlight a few of our favorite spots for deliciousness in our neighborhood and beyond. Let's eat!
When we need to get fortified while hanging a new show, or just want to have a delicious lunch on our day off, we often find ourselves at Orenchi Beyond.
We used find excuses to go to the Orenchi in Santa Clara. If we were visiting an artist in Palo Alto we would time it so that we could have lunch as well. Lunch at Orenchi in Santa Clara meant cooling our heels in a strip mall parking lot while we waited for a table, and then a visit to the Korean supermarket across the street. It took up a good chunk of the day. We were thrilled when they opened up on Valencia Street, and there is never a wait at lunchtime during the week.
The space is airy and light and is a pleasant place to slurp some ramen. There is a large mural done by Chad Hasegawa and Apexer which gives the industrial chic decor a great splash of color. The staff is super, we always feel welcome. Give it a try if you are a ramen lover.
