Although it’s only one block west of Valencia’s food-heavy madness, Guerrero Street can feel like a lost kingdom at times. Turkish restaurant Tuba has been working to rectify that oversight since opening in 2010, bringing lamb, eggplant and other delights of the Eastern Mediterranean to the Mission. Notably a spot where vegetarians and eaters of everything can get along swimmingly, this dark, red-tinted establishment is armed with fine, contemporary art and huge wine racks in the open. The lively Tuba would probably be a romantic hideaway but for the boisterous crowds schlepping in from all parts of the city for a taste of a cuisine at once so familiar and so underappreciated.
