Regardless of what some militant herbivores will tell you, not all meat-eaters are evil marauding baby-eaters who have zero regard for where their meat came from. San Francisco is already a leader in providing diners with organic, humanely raised meat -- and it's not just for the fancy restaurants. Here are our top five places to get humanely-raised fast food in the city.

Alongside some of the greatest falafel in the city, this little hole-in-the-wall on Valencia offers up lamb and chicken schwarmas from Niman Ranch -- meaning the meat comes from sustainable family farms that use no antibiotics or hormones and ensure a humane environment for the animals. Zaytoon's schwarmas offer up the perfect balance of herbs, meat, onions and tomatoes, with the chicken and lamb grilled to textured perfection. Added bonus: They ask you in advance how mild or spicy you want your food and follow instructions to the letter.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
