Three Papayas

There's something poetic about recovering from overindulgence in the same place you succumbed the night before. One of the Mission's favorite bars, Doc's Clock, happens to host a fine restorative feed in Three Papayas' Sunday afternoon "cultural liberation brunch." Former Yamo chef Ta-Wei Lin's menu is brief and ever-changing, with inspired riffs on authentic pan-Asian fare: seafood gumbo with coconut-lemon rice; shortrib curry; ginger congee; crispy pork leg; a blueberry-kissed papaya salad — with no wretched hollandaise in sight. At $8 an item, Three Papayas' food is immensely more satisfying and affordable than conventional brunch dishes gobbled at Valencia hangouts.
