Another week, another guide to the exciting events you should check out in SF right now. This week’s roundup is full of pop-ups serving everything from menchi katsu sandwiches to beef rendang quesabirria, plus a rooftop deck in the Sunset, a new Happy Hour to check out, and more.
Damnfine Happy Hour
Our favorite spot for wood-fired pizza in the Sunset just started offering a Happy Hour menu, complete with personal pies, sparkling sangria, and wine specials. It’s available from 4-6pm Tuesday through Friday, so head over to get your hands on their excellent pepperoni or funghi pizzas - and be sure to get a side of hot honey and ranch.
Hawaii-inspired pop-up 2x4 is popping up at Fig & Thistle in Hayes Valley on September 10th and 11th. They’ll be there from 5-9pm both days, serving dishes like their menchi katsu sandwich and salmon dynamite - plus burnt honey pie from pastry pop-up Grand Opening.
Eat Doshi at The Ramen Shop
Eat Doshi is a New York-based Korean pop-up that made its California debut last month in LA - and this Saturday (September 11th), you can find them at The Ramen Shop in Oakland. Pre-order a box of muchim, local anchovy and shrimp, and more for pick-up here.
Fiorella just opened a third location in the Sunset - and unlike the others, this one has a full bar and a rooftop deck. The Italian restaurant also has some Sunset-exclusive dishes, like a clam pie or a romaine cacio e pepe salad, all of which you can wash down with cocktails or a glass of wine.
Shake Shack x Dominique Crenn
On September 9th, Shake Shack is collaborating with Dominique Crenn (the chef behind Atelier Crenn) to feature a one-day-only grilled cheese at their Cow Hollow location. It’s made on Tartine sourdough, topped with tomatoes and onion jam, and 100% of the proceeds will go toward La Cocina’s new municipal marketplace, which opened in the Tenderloin in April.
Singapore Food Festival
For the first time ever, the annual Singapore Food Festival is popping up in SF. From September 11-12th, stop by Harmonic Brewing’s original Dogpatch location for a hawker center-style pop-up, with dishes like soft shell crab mantou by Dabao Singapore, or beef rendang quesabirria by Indo-Mex. Pre-sale tickets are currently sold out, but walk-ins are available.
Las Comadres Pop-Up
On Saturday September 11th, a group of women-owned businesses are popping up in the Mission from 11am-5pm. Stop by for baked goods by Bris’s Creations, paletas by Pepito’s Paletas, Northern Mexican-style burritos by Semilla, and more.
