The concept of Eatsa is to provide the convenience and speed of fast food with the nutrition of the slow food movement, and their high-tech presentation is so San Francisco. The speed comes from their specially designed ordering system—you’ll order and pay either on your phone ahead of time or on an iPad in store. When you arrive (or in a few minutes if you order on-site) your food is ready to take away with you, in a human-free cubby with your name on it. They achieve this efficiency in the kitchen by offering a few easy-to-build quinoa bowls that you can customize to suit your tastes. The Mediterranean salad is great for the carb-conscious, as is the “no worry curry.” With each bowl ringing in at less than $7, they’re expanding quickly: there’s already a second location on California Street.
