Mod-Filipino food truck Hapa SF has announced two pop-up dates this month, Sat., Jan. 22, at La Victoria in the Mission and Tue., Jan. 25, at Bar Basic in SOMA. Owner William Pilz tells SFoodie the idea is to preview dishes that might end up on Hapa's regular menu.
Pilz's pulutan pop-up at La Victoria last summer left SFoodie raving ― expect the Jan. 22 dinner to be like that in form, anyway: reservations (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org*), table service, BYOB, kid-friendly.
The Bar Basic event promises to have more of a street-food feel, with Pilz preparing food on the Hapa truck and having servers run it to tables inside the bar. Another big difference: Bar Basic is walk-ins only. And Pilz is working with Par Basic to design a couple of special drinks for the event ― probably a calamansi cocktail and a coco-tini.
Here's the preliminary menu for both events, obviously subject to change:
