Call it a cliche, but kale’s worldwide domination continues in full force here in San Francisco. Our advice? Embrace the curly green in its superfood glory, an easy task thanks to the proliferation of seriously excellent kale salads around town.

    We dream about the kale salad ($11) from Darwin Cafe, seriously. Tender dark greens are lent just the right amount of bite thanks to crisp, bitter chicory; the veg blend is rounded out with an ample serving of sinfully good prosciutto.

    Their kale salad ($12) hits all of our top pleasure points—tender baby kale is tossed with bacon, parm, marcona almonds, and crunchy, buttery breadcrumbs. Add a perfect wine pairing and consider us the happiest of campers.

    As our appreciation for St. Jorge's salad makes clear, we love a good kale-avocado combo. Reveille nails this pairing with their generously piled salad ($8) featuring curly green kale, ample, buttery chunks of ripe avocado, and toasted pumpkin seeds.

    Here, kale is simply tossed with a lemon vinaigrette and high-quality parmesan; an addition of avocado ($1.25) is never a bad idea, of course. Be sure to try their rich (but delicate!) Portuguese egg custard tart for dessert.

    The pecorino-honey pairing would be enough to win us over, but this salad is taken to another level with the addition of butter toasted Marcona almonds.

    It’s easy to forget about salad when indulging in the tapas glory that is Coqueta. Try not to—their enaslada de kale ($12) is one of the most creative and interesting versions in town.

    Whoever first thought of combining raw kale with creamy, salty caesar dressing was a genius. Upcider may not have been the first, but their take on the now-classic kale caesar ($8.95) is easily one of our favorites in the city.

    Choose between a hearty grain topping, sweet roasted beets, or our favorite, an excellent blend of tender chicken and creamy avocado.
