Kubala's Kitchen (in the Tempest Bar) Restaurant Review

: There is nothing fancy about Kubala's Kitchen. At night the bar is busy with South of Market beatniks, artists and workers from the San Francisco Chronicle. During the day, lunch is where the action is. Burgers are king here, including a cheeseburger with the works. But our favorite is the portobello burger with roasted red bell pepper, mozzarella, red onion and mayo. It's filling without being terribly fattening, except if you order the addictive french fries. You can also opt for a cup of soup, small salad or potato salad instead. But why would you? When your check arrives be sure to enjoy the complimentary brownie that comes with it.
