Asian Box – Authentic & Healthy Street Food in Union Square

**Guest post by the team at Asian Box in the basement of Macy's Union Square

On your next visit to Union Square, whether you’re shopping, working here or planning to take in a show, it’s always nice to grab a bite in a comfy and casual environment. If you’re like most visitors to San Francisco, you want to eat healthy without sacrificing taste. You want choice—whether you’re a meat-lover, pescaterian, paleoterian, vegetarian or gluten-free diner. And you want to know that your food is real, local and fresh. Welcome to the Asian Box! We are a new breed of fast-casual restaurant offering fresh made-to-order Asian street food. Found in the heart of the Union Square neighborhood on the Cellar level of the flagship Macy’s department store, the Box offers good-for-you Asian food made with all-natural ingredients that are free from hormones, antibiotics or pesticides.

Add us to your list of go-to lunch and dinner spots in downtown San Francisco. Our customizable menu lets you create a new culinary experience each time you visit. Start with a choice of white or brown rice, rice noodles or Asian vegetable salad. Then, choose from a flavor-packed lineup of proteins, including: SIX spice blend chicken, coconut curry tofu or lemongrass-marinated pork. Top it off with add-ons like crispy shallots, jalapeños, a caramel egg (yup, you read that right – it’s a hardboiled egg with a slight hint of sweetness) or peanut sauce.

We buy locally when possible and all of our sauces, marinades and dressings are made from scratch for extra flavor (Tip: If you like heat, you’ll love our Hot Box It™ sauce…but don’t say we didn’t warn you!).  We bring an Asian street food experience to Union Square (and we box it up nicely if you want to have a picnic in the park), so we hope to see you soon. In fact, we’re including an offer for a yummy drink (like our refreshing lemon lime marmalade) with any box in this blog post.

Visit us at our home in Macy’s at 170 O’Farrell St, or find us on Facebook or Twitter for delicious updates.
