Pulled Mushroom Sandwiches at Mr. Tipple's Recording Studio ($9)

Mid-Market newcomer Mr. Tipple's serves up an edited list of bar snacks, and the sliders are no joke. Chef Joey Elenterio creates a luscious trio of smoked and pulled seasonal 'shrooms enveloped in brioche buns with coleslaw, crispy shallots, American cheese, and mushroom-based barbecue sauce. // Mr. Tipple's Recording Studio: 39 Fell St. (Mid-Market), mrtipplessf.com

Kimchi Grilled Cheese at Maven ($8)

Not your typical grilled cheese, chef Isaac Miller tops this version with kimchi, apples, mushrooms and cheddar, for the perfect balance of flavors. As one does at Maven, pair it with a cocktail—The Money Tree (pisco, savory shrub, tarragon, orgeat, egg white) provides a tart counterpoint to the umami-rich sandwich. // Maven: 598 Haight Street (Lower Haight), maven-sf.com

Smoked Trumpet Mushroom Reuben at Wise Sons Deli ($12)

As usual, Wise Sons delivers an over-the-top veggie delight with their mushroom Reuben.
