Here’s a trio of new restaurants with funny names that want to get you fat. First up is ~ADAM’S GRUB AT CHUG PUB~. It looks like food truck Adam’s Grub now has a permanent home at Chug Pub in the Sunset. The menu is the same as the truck; think Asian-inspired and hefty sandwiches like the Falkor (that’s panko-crusted fried chicken with pepper jack, bacon, and Asian slaw on a brioche bun) or the Sho’nuff Hot Dog (a beef dog with jalapeños, Asian slaw, wasabi avocado, pepper jack, and bacon bits). Check out the whole menu here, and note their late-night hours: Mon-Fri 4pm-2am and Sat-Sun 12pm-2am. 1849 Lincoln Way at 21st Ave., 415-242-9930.

Eater caught the news that ~HOMESKILLET~ is now open in the former Pearl’s Burgers location on Market. The new project comes from John Chow, who also owns nearby Little Griddle, and has a diner-inspired menu. There are burgers with lots of toppings at lunch; at breakfast, look for lots of hotcakes, egg dishes, and Benedicts. They’re pouring Equator coffee too. 1001 Market St. at 6th St., no phone.

There’s also a new sandwich spot in Parkside, according to Eater. The new spot is called ~GRUBBIN’~, and is owned by Emily Truong. It’s a classic sub shop, with some rather visceral names for their specialty (from Droolin’ to Savorin’) and a signature “grub sauce” on all of them. There’s also a daily special, hot wings, fries, and tater tots. Hours are Mon-Fri 11am-7pm and Sat-Sun 11am-6pm. 1404 Taraval St. at 24th Ave., 415-688-7116.
