In a city known for it’s delicious and innovative food trucks, only one can claim the title “Best.” According to San Francisco Magazine, that distinction belongs to The Chairman. This unique 5 star restaurant on wheels serves up delicious Chinese buns (or baos) beautifully glazed meats and bright pickled veggies. Chef Hiroo Nagahara is the culinary mastermind behind the Chairman.
Fresh off his celebrated career as head chef at Bar Louie, Las Vegas, Nagahara wanted to see how far he could push street food using techniques from high end restaurants. But like any good artist, Nagahara wanted to collaborate. That’s why he recruited Taiwanese-American DC comic artist James Jean to design the truck’s mural, a tongue-in-cheek homage to vintage propaganda posters. The truck parks in various locations throughout the city, but also has a brick and mortar on Larkin Street.
Check out their menu and treat yourself to a delicious bao tonight. You’ll be glad you did!
