Sunday, November 20th, 2011

By Carole Chung

Nan Korean Restaurant

560 Fillmore Street at Geary
San Francisco, CA 94115-3516
Tel.(415) 441-9294
Opening Hours: 5pm-midnight Mon-Wed; Thurs – Sun 5pm-2am
Credit Cards: Yes


A type of Korean Beer Hall where plates of steaming, spicy Korean home-style food is served with icy beer to what appears to be mostly a crowd of twenty-something Koreans. The music is Korean Pop and played quite loud, which became annoying. Their signature dish Bulgogi Pa-Jeon $12.95, a pancake with slices of sweet marinated beef and whole scallions,  is very good.

Facade of A16 (Photo from A16)The restaurant is aptly named after the highway A16 that winds through Campania the region that is home to Napoli, Positano, Pompei, the islands of Capri and Ischia that lie off the coast among many other lovely towns.

This restaurant is currently one of my haunts when I am in San Francisco; I really enjoy it!.
They have a wood-fired oven serving Neapolitan Pizza, which I will not delve into since there are so many varieties. Please check with the A16 website link above for the full menu and wine list.

Some of the interesting dishes served (some may be seasonal) are:
Beet and potato salad with radicchio, green olives and toasted almonds, Roasted young favas with green garlic, mint, chiles and lemon, Tripe napoletana with onions, tomato, white wine and breadcrumbs, La Quercia Berkshire prosciutto, La Quercia acorn edition tasting: coppa, lonza and lardo, Prosciutto San Daniele aged months,Smoked trotter terrina (house-cured), Ciccioli (house-cured),Pig ear terrina (house-cured), Lonza (house-cured), Bresaola (house-cured).

The wine bar serves around 40 wines by the glass or 375ml carafe and are mostly Italian with a few special boutique California wines, some made from Italian varietals.
I include only a few wines by the glass from Campania, although they have so many more, again check with the above website for the complete list:

White Wines: Glass or Carafe (375ml)
Campania Whites
Villa Raiano, Fiano di Avellino 2006,Terredora di Paolo, Greco di Tufo 2006, Alois,’Caulino’, Falanghina 2005, Marisa Cuomo, ‘Ravello’, Costa d’Amalfi 2006 (Falanghina/Biancolella)

The parking can be quite difficult so I would highly suggest going by taxi rather than spending time looking for street parking (very difficult) or big money to park in the lot

More Delays for Vache Brasserie – San Francisco

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

I have been patiently anticipating the opening of a French Brasserie on the former site of Prego at 2000 Union Street in Cow Hollow by Bacchus Management (Spruce, etcetera). It was to be called Vache Brasserie, although according to the San Francisco Chronicle and Eater San Francisco it seems certain that there will be more delays and a possible name change might be in store.
