Sunrise Deli

This 37-year-old Middle Eastern deli now has four locations and a truck, but we still find ourselves most often at the original Sunset location, devouring a falafel plate. Sunrise Deli's falafel, with their lacy, crisp shells, are one of San Francisco's best dishes, and the lemon-zapped hummus and tahini sauce are perfect foils for the chickpea fritters. If you feel the urge to share with your family or housemates, you can leave with an extra dozen falafel in hand.
