Fans of dim sum, rejoice: ~MAMA JI’S DIM SUM AND DINNER~ has finally reopened in the former Queen Malika’s space in the Castro, and since they got approval to put in a hood, they are no longer just a pop-up. Yup, they’re all grown up and full time now. Look for Szechuan dinner items, in addition to dim sum all day and night (plus coffee in the morning). Hours are 9:30am-9:30pm daily (10pm on the weekends). 4416 18th St. at Eureka, 415-626-4416.
The Kama Sushi (and Dash in San Mateo) folks have opened a fourth location in the Outer Sunset, but this time it’s ~KAMA IZAKAYA~. For now, no sushi is served at this location—just hot dishes like chicken karaage and gyoza, plus ramen, udon, and more. Hours are daily 5pm-12am, and lunch is served Sat-Sun 11:30am-2:30pm. Delivery coming soon. 2555 Judah St. at 31st Ave., 415-742-5670.
