I did a bit of walking around SoMa yesterday to look for interesting places to drink. After some wandering and kind of going in circles for a bit, I found a sign on Brannan street which indicated that if I walked through an alleyway north to Bryant I would find a nice place called Lava. So I did and I did, the place was empty but didn't look like a complete shit-hole so I decided to give it a shot. They had Kobe beef sliders on the menu, which attracted me after eating the Wagyu meat in Sydney, so I got some of these sliders and a Guinness to go with. The beer+sliders was 18 bucks and tasted great, however I'd say you might want to order a cheap side to go along with if you get the sliders.
