A while back, I mentioned ~HISAGO~ was opening in the former Sanmi space from new owner Greg Hamaguchi, and it’s now open. Here’s a copy of the menu for you to peek at, which features homestyle dishes, ramen, and donburi. tablehopper intern Rebecca Kinney has this initial report, “I had the Wafu burger, which is a charbroiled patty of pork, beef, tofu, and hijiki topped with grated daikon, ponzu, and scallions, with a side of enoki mushrooms and asparagus. Asparagus was perfectly cooked. The patty was thick and juicy and a good deal at $7.50. It made me wish I had a Japanese grandmother.” Don’t we all. 3226 Geary Blvd. at Spruce, 415-379-9569.
Over in the Mission, ~KRUA THAI~ has opened in the former Bangkok 16 location, serving lunch and dinner Tue-Sun, with free delivery after 5:30pm ($20 min.). Pictures on their website point to a rather contemporary and sleek look. 3214 16th St. at Guerrero, 415-913-7886.
