Get ready for a party as UC San Francisco welcomes its newest restaurant to Mission Bay!

Where: SF Kebab, Mission Hall, First Floor Cafe Space

When: Tuesday, June 27 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm

Music provided by: SF Conservatory of Music

It isn’t every day that a new restaurant opens at Mission Bay. So Retail Services and Arts & Events partnered to usher in our newest restaurant, SF Kebab, with a celebration that includes a ceremonial ribbon cutting with Associate Vice Chancellor Clare Shinnerl and restaurant owners Bawer and Elke Tekin. A trio from the SF Conservatory of Music will provide entertainment, which is part of the “Love Your Vendor” concert series. Select items from the restaurant’s Mediterranean menu will be available to sample (while supplies last).

Yummy for your tummy, Mediterranean style

SF Kebab specializes in authentic Mediterranean cuisine such as gyros, wraps, kebabs, hummus, tabbouleh and couscous. Marketing Manager Elke Tekin said they are excited to become part of the UCSF community.

“We specialize in local, sustainable, healthy food which fits with the university’s philosophy. It is a beautiful match for both of us.”

The restaurant offers a variety of fast, casual, Mediterranean foods all of which are made fresh, in-house, and never frozen. SF Kebab also features homemade bread and gyro made with a special recipe. Spices and dried products are sourced from the Middle East to assure the authenticity of the flavors.

Unique interior design invites you to sit back and relax

With an interior designed by Tecta Associates, a well-known San Francisco-based architectural firm, everything within SF Kebab underscores comfort: from the wooden tables in the restaurant handcrafted from 100-year old reclaimed wood from the ceiling in the first Safeway, to the Moroccan pendants and banquette seating. It’s just as welcoming an atmosphere whether you’re dining solo or with a gang of your UCSF besties.

SF Kebab Staff can’t wait to meet you

Many of the same staff that worked at Hayes & Kebab in Hayes Valley are back with will the Tekins at SF Kebab. The restaurant is currently open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. In the near future, breakfast and catering will be added. Menu items will include country-style breakfasts and weekend brunch including freshly made pastries. SF Kebab also features a private dining room for small meetings and parties.
