Outside Lands: Your Guide to Grub Near Golden Gate Park

Outside Lands, the jam-packed San Francisco music festival, will soon be upon us, and we over at whatsGOOD are stoked for a weekend of live music in the stunning Golden Gate Park. The three-day-long event is enough to challenge the limits of even the most seasoned festival-goers, and between running between stages and partying all day, we know a solid hangover breakfast or late-night snack is key to rallying for another day. While we are impressed with the selection of scrumptious snacks available inside the festival, we're taking you outside Outside Lands so you can try some quintessential SF eats.

We used whatsGOOD, the app that tells you the most popular dishes to match any diet, ingredient, or lifestyle, to figure out your food, so all you have to focus on is getting your groove on. We scoured our database of 417,000 restaurants and filtered through 31,000,000 dishes to round up the best grub in the area worth checking out.

Hangover Brunch: Outerlands

It's happened to us too many times -- you're saving your festival energy until late afternoon, but you gotta get some food like, now. What better option than a lazy weekend brunch? Outerlands has both sweet and savory covered, and whether you fancy the popular Dutch Pancake or the Fried Egg Open-Faced Sandwich is up to you. Wash it down with some Lemon Ginger Apple Cider to soothe your aching vocal chords.

Ethnic Food Fix: Burma Superstar

A mere two blocks from Golden Gate Park, Clement Street is filled with some of the best Burmese food this side of the Atlantic. Walk into pretty much any joint on this street and you can't go wrong, but our pick is Burma Superstar, where dishes like Coconut Rice and Samusa Soup provide an inexplicable comfort to our exhausted selves. Just like our imaginary Burmese grandma used to make.

Juice Up: Judahlicious

For those of you who just need a quick jolt of vitamins as a morning pick-me-up, Judahlicious is the place to be. Vegan and raw dishes abound, but the highlight here is their loaded smoothies and juices. Try the Elixir Juice (carrot, beet, celery, daikon radish, ginger, and garlic) or the Superfood Smoothie (almonds, dates, seaweed, ginger, blueberries, bananas, acai... to name a few) for a refreshing morning treat. The Acai Bowl is a highlight as well.

Fast and Cheap: Sunrise Deli

Fuel up for cheap on your way to the festival at Sunrise Deli, where you can get a dozen Falafel for just six bucks (might we add, delicious falafel). Veggie friendly? Absolutely, but the Shawarma is a can't-miss for you carnivores. So filling. So cheap. So tasty. Need we say more?

Fun and Games: Tee Off Bar and Grill

It's been a long day, but the day is over and it's only ten! San Francisco is your oyster! Head over to the Tee Off Bar and Grill with the gang for a game of ping-pong or pool, while you refuel with some Pork Chops or Mac N Cheese. Open until 2am, this chill atmosphere will help you wind down so you can rest up for the next day.

Late Night: Toyose

You know the feeling. The insatiable craving... for Korean Chicken Wings. Don't worry, it's totally normal. And curable. Toyose is open until 2 a.m., and they are ready to satiate that craving. For those of you who have never tried this delicacy, they're like normal hot wings with a twist -- ginger, sesame, honey, soy sauce -- clean up on the ethnic foods aisle! The beloved Kimchee Fried Rice makes the perfect side dish.

After Party: Durty Nelly's

Ok, none of these exclusive after parties or fancy bars for you. You just want to go a pub. Not just any pub. A pub where they serve up authentic Bangers and Mash and spicy Curry Fries that you can wash down with an Irish Car Bomb, or four. If that sounds like you, Durty Nelly's is your place.
