Heard through word of mouth that this place is almost always busy. They weren't lying! Although my friend and I arrived just before the rush hit, the inside filled up within minutes. Had to try one of their popular items, the spicy pork kimchee burrito. So much flavor and kick packed into it. My friend had the Crunchy Roll Special fried rice, which also looked delish. I'd love to come back to try something else from their menu, and I won't mind at all if I have to wait. It's definitely worth it.

Korean spicy pork Kimchi burrito was a winner! My quest to dine at as many places that were featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives continues with this gem, located in San Francisco, just a few blocks from AT&T Park! HRD Coffee Shop is definitely not your typical coffee shop (honestly, I have no idea why it's even called a coffee shop, as this place offers full-blown burgers, burritos, noodles, and rice dishes!) HRD specializes in Korean-fusion style burgers and burritos, which is what sets it apart from other "coffee shops" or burger joints. I opted for the Korean spicy pork kimchi burrito, and it certainly did not disappoint. First off, the burrito was huge, and was loaded with juicy spicy pork over rice. The sauce was tasty and the burrito was loaded! This giant burrito was my best friend before watching a Giants game. Their menu is quite interesting, as every typical Americano item has its own Korean twist. Next time, I'm going to try their burgers and Korean BBQ burrito. Beware of the lines during the lunch hour, but come early, since they close at 3 PM. Can't wait for my next trip back to HRD!!!

I stumbled into HRD by accident. It had a greasy diner look from the outside, but upon seeing the menu, I couldn't walk out without ordering a Spicy Chicken Kimchee burrito. Holy Cow. I haven't stopped talking about it since.

Kimchi burrito is all I needed to hear. I cleared my schedule and made the trip downtown to this lunch hotspot. I was not disappointed and the wait was worth the spoils. The spicy tofu kimchi burrito was out of this world and all those wonderful Korean flavors are well suited wrapped up in a burrito. I'll be back to try something else on their interesting menu that features rice bowls, sandwiches, and breakfast plates.

I love this place! They are so much better than a certain korean influenced restaurant in WestLA that recently opened up. Get the crunchy roll fried rice which is spam, bulgogi, and egg on kimchi fried rice. Also, David is one of the coolest people to ever man a register (seems to remembers everyone's name after only one visit).

Holy kim chi! I also saw hrd on DDD and finally got to experience it for the first time this summer. I had something with tofu, kim chi, rice, spinach, and a few other ingredients. Yummy and extremely filling! Jokes were made the following week when my coworkers left overs were still in the work fridge (extra fermented kim chi anyone?) Get there early, as there is occasionally a huge line.

What's not to like about HRD? It's a hole in the wall place that always had a line out the door and down the street. I always get the Crunchy special roll Kim chee fried rice. It has spam, chicken and spicy pork in the fried rice with a fried egg on top. You can't go wrong with the spicy pork burrito either. It has a cucumber slaw, fried rice, sour cream, and meat all wrapped up neatly in a tortilla. Yum.

Located near the I-80 overpass at 3rd & Bryant, the surroundings are kind of dingy, and you'd expect this to be a typical old school spot that serves mediocre diner food, but inside, you'll find an eclectic menu serving up American and Asian faves, like Mongolian Beef Cheesesteak, Kimchee Burrito and BBQ Pork with scrambled egg over rice. I got the kimchee burrito, and man oh man, was it delish! It's filled with spicy pork and kimchee fried rice. And for $6, it can feed two people!
The staff is all smiles too, and were super cool even though they don't permit ball playing in the restroom.
Look out for their yellow awning with a big bold "HRD" and bring cash. And if you're going to catch a weekday Giants game, make a stop here and pick up some tasty cheap eats and bring it with you!

Remarkably friendly service (rivaling Gary Danko's level of friendliness, except more genuine) and delicious Korean fusion. Watch out, as lines can be long during lunch or ball games. First time? Get the Spicy Pork Kimchee Burrito.Recommended for:Foodies
