Thanks to a star tablehopper reader, Paul G., I learned about the new business opening in the former Wooly Pig Cafe space in the Inner Sunset. It’s going to be YO TAMBIÉN CANTINA from couple Isabella Bertorelli and Kenzie Benesh.
They will be bringing their tropical-local vibes (they have hosted pop-up dinners and been a part of collaborations in the past), offering Venezuelan-Californian tropical food, from sandwiches (think pulled pork, spicy plantains, güasacaca sauce, and salsa picante inside an arepa) to bowls, plus baked goods and breakfast items. They are dedicated to seasonal, organic, and local produce (they are tight with Full Belly Farm) and are extremely excited to open. They are currently targeting late May/early June. Looking forward to meeting these badass mujeres and trying their food. Follow along on Instagram for now. 205 Hugo St. at 3rd Ave.
