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.

    Namu is a family affair and it feels like it. Ingredients are top notch, and it's quickly become one of the best modern Asian places around. And the Korean tacos are on the menu now. [Eater 38 Member]

    Namu was listed among Zagat's 2011 Best San Francisco Bay Area Asian/Asian Fusion Restaurants and their Korean Taco made 7x7's List of 100 Things to Try Before You Die.

  • Cheapism on 03/05/11

    Order some sake, wine, or beer from 9:30pm-10:30pm on Mondays and treat yourself to some free Pan-Asian appetizers like tomato, white bean & chicken spreads, or chicken skin and giblet skewers.
