Why go: You’re trapped inside the belly of the department store, and there it is, the all-new SC Asian, short for “Stir Crazy Asian,” with its expansive 160-seat dining hall, beckoning you to take a load off and to succumb to its generously-sized portions of pan-Asian favorites.
What to order: With an open kitchen of steaming hot wok stations, our vote is for the made-to-order stir fry. Tempting, too, are the Asian flat breads — certainly not authentic — but you can’t go wrong with anything freshly baked in a wood-burning oven.
Where: SC Asian, 170 O’Farrell Street (Cellar of Macy’s); 415-296-8888.
