Namu - CLOSED
San Francisco, CA 94118
SF Weekly's Description
Dark, urbane, and minimalist, Namu serves elegant Korean-Californian cuisine on an otherwise quiet stretch of Balboa. Chef Dennis Lee and his brothers make their own kimchi and ramen noodles, wrap grilled short ribs in toasted nori (Namu's famous Korean "taco"), and braise oxtail with daikon, all using sustainably sourced, local products. Try one of the signature fresh fruit and tea-infused sojus, or choose from a large selection of sakes, sojus, and wines by the glass.
