K’s Kitchen is sooo San Francisco.
If you’re visiting City College or hiking Glen Park, plan a meal at K’s Kitchen. K, a.k.a. Ken Deng, exemplifies the San Francisco experience. He runs — ran—K’s Kitchen. Though Ken has moved on, K’s continues — a restaurant that serves gnocchi, foie gras & tiramisu… and he, himself, is a Chinese San Franciscan, who’s a “self-learned chef.”
Deng has an excellent palate, the confidence to offer the fruits of that palate to customers, and the boldness to stir French and Italian items into a Japanese menu. The whole thing works — in a bold San Francisco way.
