The latest food truck to drive its concept into a brick-and-mortar is Dum, the Indian soul food truck that got its start roving the streets of San Francisco and at various Off the Grid locations. Now owner Rupam Bhagat has taken over the Local Mission Eatery space, which closed back in December due to dwindling business. The restaurant’s menu will have all the familiar food truck items, like biryani, kati rolls, rice dishes and chaat. Dinner will be more robust with kebabs and rotating large-format dishes from various regions of India.
Since the space is already in good working order, Bhagat is planning for a mid-May opening after a quick reorganization of some kitchen equipment. Hours will be Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
