FOB Kitchen is now a full-time restaurant in the Mission, and the grand opening is tonight!


Epic news! Last summer we named this place the BEST RESTAURANT IN THE MISSION, so we’re thrilled they’re gonna be open more than a couple days a week! Janice’s ribs (almost) EVERY DAY, man!

Here’s the invite:

Come celebrate with us as FOB Kitchen officially takes over the kitchen at Gashead Tavern!

We’ll be serving up your favorites like our signature Adobo, Janice’s ribs, and lechon kawali as we kick off this new adventure!

You can now find us here 5 days a week:
Dinner: Wednesday-Saturday night from 6-10pm
Brunch: Saturday and Sunday from 11am-3pm.

As always we use organic produce and sustainable meats whenever possible.

Looking forward to the exciting changes around here, and serving up yummy Filiipino food full-time, here in SF!

Hope to see you there! and a big BIG thank you to all who have supported us along the way. FOB Kitchen LOVES you!

RSVP and invite your friends!

If you whine about parking in SF you’re just not getting creative enough

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."

— My pal Valerie, writing about life in the Mission
