Inside Saucy Asian, Open Monday For Korean Fusion

At 17th and Sanchez — with Dolores Park deliveries to come

Starting Monday, June 12, Saucy Asian will be dishing out unapologetically fusion Korean food from bulgogi bowls to tacos. First-time restaurant owner Andrew Shinn snagged the former H Cafe space 3801 17th Street on the corner of Sanchez, and he’s done it up with the kind of murals and neon that attract the Instagram set like a moth to a flame.

In fact, Saucy Asian will also meet the kids where they’re at: In Dolores Park, just blocks away, with park “drop” deliveries to come after the restaurant settles in. For now, the format is fast-casual, with seating inside and out and food available to-go.

Opening the business has been a challenge, but it’s a dream fulfilled for Shinn, who’s spent years waiting tables, washing dishes, and helping his dad run franchise sandwich shops on the Peninsula. Hours are 10:30a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily: Scope the menu below.
