The Meeting Place — a food hall backed by Ikea’s sister company, Ingka, coming to Downtown San Francisco — looks to have decided on its debut tenants.
“Within the last week, five local restaurant operators have filed business registrations at 945 Market Street,” The San Francisco Business Times reports — one of which is Oakland-born Casa Borinqueña.
For readers unfamiliar with Casa Borinqueña, the concept specializes in Puerto Rican cuisine made using only plant-based ingredients, including meat substitutes such as Impossible meat and OmniPork.
Its menu boasts pastelillos, stuffed deep-fried plantains, pastelón, and pastries such as mallorcas.
In addition to Casa Borinqueña, the two-level, 23,000-square-foot food hall plans to feature Curry Up Now, La Venganza, Momo Noodle, and The Sarap Shop — as well as three bars with local craft beer and wine.
