Family-Run Korean-California Cuisine
Namu Gaji
The Mission

This is where you’ll fill your picnic basket on a sunny day en route to the park. Or, after sunset, head here with your date to warm up over rare bottles of sake.

Start with the sliding-glass window on Dolores that opens into the kitchen. You’ll order the street-food goods you often get at the Ferry Building, like the fried chicken and okonomiyaki. Or ice cream alts like sake-infused shaved ice.

Pro Tip

Namu Gaji doesn't take dinner reservations -- it's walk-ins only.

Pro Tip

"Run, don't walk, to Namu Gaji. Grab a window counter seat to watch the show on Mission St. Order the potato puffs, the mushroom dumplings. Actually, order everything."

What to Order

"Mushrooms & Stonepot"

Expect also to see chef Dennis Lee's well known Korean Fried Chicken (KFC), as well as house-fermented kimchee made from strains of bacteria from his family’s village in Korea, flown in by his aunt especially for the new restaurant. There'll also be raw-bar items, dumplings, a burger, and kimchee-oyster okonomiyaki on the menu as well.

An intimate dining atmosphere with mostly elbow-to-elbow seating: a counter facing 18th street, the aforementioned kitchen counter and a communal table. Handmade Japanese tiles, wooden plates and some very special reclaimed wood will be eye-grabbing features in a traditional Japanese-style decor.
