Since announcing plans to open his own Portuguese restaurant, Uma Casa, chef Telmo Faria has been popping up all over town, testing recipes and working on his menu. After the success of his last late-night pop-up, Faria has put together a last minute, non-ticketed event at Merigan Sub Shop. The next opportunity to feast on Portuguese bar snacks and Francesinhas happens Sunday, August 2 from 6 p.m.-9 p.m.

Juhu Beach Club's Preeti Mistry is teaming up with McDade Fare's Paula McDade for a k.pop! Korean pop-up. The pop-up will happen at Juhu Beach Club, featuring McDade's take on Korean food. The chef, who has spent time in the kitchens of heavy-hitters like Quince and Gramercy Tavern, will present dishes like handmade dumplings with spicy mushroom bulgogi filling, pork belly "tacos" and a kimchi sampler. The four-course menu will be served Monday, August 3 from 5 p.m.- 11 p.m.; tickets available here.

Citizen Fox is still headed to the Mission this fall, but in the meantime diners can check out some of chef Kevin Schuder's vegan delights on a regular basis. That means the addition of two regular weekly pop-ups, which includes a weekly Sunday brunch featuring fried chik'n and waffles and granola with pistachio milk. A portion of brunch sales will go twards the PreetiRang Sanctuary, so this is a rare opportunity to make the the world a better place with brunch. Additionally, Friday night dinner will happen weekly, giving diners a taste of the upcoming restaurant menu. Fried oyster mushrooms with fermented pepper aioli and the Citizen Fox burger will make appearances, along with a full bar. Brunch will happen Sundays from 10:30 a.m.- 3 p.m.; dinner will go from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. on Fridays at 2293 Mission Street.
