I was happy to learn via Zagat that the kind (and talented) chef Guddu—previously running the tasty Pakistani show at ~LAHORE KARAHI~ in the Tenderloin—is going to be opening his own place in the Outer Sunset. Yes, we get to have his cooking again! Chef Zulfiqar “Guddu” Haider will be opening GUDDU DE KARAHI, and he just tweeted a pic of his in-progress menu. His dedicated fans will be happy to see his trademark tandoori fish right at the top, along with curries, biryanis, kebabs (with halal meat), and more.
Stand by for news about the opening soon—it should open the second or third week of September. I had a quick chat with Guddu, who said, “I miss you guys too much!” Yeah, someone is fired up to see you again (and trust, the feeling is mutual). Hours will be Wed-Sun 5pm-10:30pm. 1501 Noriega St. at 22nd Ave., 415-759-9088.
