Best Exotic Food Delivery 

By Anna Roth It's Tuesday night, you've opened a bottle of wine, and have Netflix queued up to binge-watch something delightful. All that's left is to order dinner in, but you're tired of the same old delivery options. These S.F. restaurants offer something outside the norm for those evenings when you want to explore the boundaries of a new cuisine but don't want to leave the cozy confines of the couch.Lers RosAlligator, frog, rabbit, quail, boar, and other meats beyond the usual choices can be found on the menu at both locations of this beloved Thai restaurant. Though every time we try to order something new, we find it hard to stray from our standard order of duck larb and the crispy pork belly. (730 Larkin St., 931-6917 or 307 Hayes, 874-9661. WingsYou don't need a sporting event to eat chicken wings for dinner. Organic wings come doused in a variety of sauces at this small Lower Haight storefront. Try the Angry Korean sauce, replete with Korean chili paste and spotted with sesame seeds, or the Wing Wings sauce, a sweet, sticky, soy-and-molasses-based concoction fortified with chile, ginger, garlic, and rice vinegar. (422 Haight St., 834-5001. Chinese FoodOne of the OG pop-ups, the now-famous Chinese spot inside Lung Shan in the Mission has a menu that changes frequently. But you can expect the likes of lamb face noodle soup, stir-fried pork jowls, spicy octopus and lamb's tongue salad, along with regular tongue-tingling dishes like ma po tofu made with numbing Sichuan peppercorns. (2234 Mission St., 863-2800. PalaceFeel like Afghan food tonight?
