I had bookmarked this place prior to visiting San Francisco. I watched a video of the three brothers who set up Namu Gaji where they spoke passionately about food and its role and importance in communities; much of their ingredients comes from their Namu Farm.
After a good few hours at Alcatraz, I had worked up an appetite and decided to head over to Namu Gaji. I opted for the ‘KFC’ (Korean Fried Chicken) which I must say was Off The Chain. The batter was perfectly crisp with a sweet chili glaze and a sprinkling of fresh chillies on top; the chicken inside was tender and succulent.
The KFC came with a gravy pot which I was a little sceptical about because it just seemed like there would be too many flavours to deal with. I was wrong. The two were a match made in gourmet fast food heaven. There was also a mild spicy slaw on the side and some pickles which rounded off the meal perfectly.
I’d recommend people put this on their SF food places to visit list. It was a favourite.
Cost: $12 (no drinks)
