Eatsa, San Francisco, CA

Eatsa Restaurant Review

: This healthy fast food concept in Rincon Center churns out a rapid succession of affordable take-away dishes for the Financial District lunch crowd. Eatsa’s eight distinct “bowl” offerings include four salads (smokehouse, balsamic beet, Mediterranean and chop) and four vegetable bowls (burrito, bento, harvest and curry). All bowls are quinoa-based and traffic heavily in garden fare, making for a high-protein, low-carb meal. Sides include house-made potato chips, chips and guacamole and fruit salad. Six refreshing fruit juices and teas complete the menu. Diners order from a bank of eight iPads and within minutes food appears in one of a wall-full of futuristic glass cubes. The sleek space has seating for just eight inside and 16 on the patio. Long lines form within 30 minutes of opening, so iPhone users should order in advance via Eatsa’s handy app. All bowls are $6.95 and credit is the only mode of payment.
