Little Star pizza coming to the Mission

On my way home tonight, I saw a sign for a beverage permit for Little Star pizza at 15th & Valencia, SW corner. This is the space that was briefly Baku, a Thai place, and then even more briefly Opium Den, a slightly cheaper Thai place. Despite good intentions, I never tried either Baku or Opium Den -- there was something unappealing about both and they were always nearly empty.

Little Star's original Western Addition location gets strong reviews for its Chicago style pizza:

Lucky us for pizza in the Mission: Delfina, Pauline's, and now (or soon, rather) Little Star.

  1. This is the best news I've had all day!

    1. Thanks for the news flash. I am sorry to say I haven't made it to Little Star all this time...now it will be even closer to me. It can't open soon enough. It will be interesting to see if it impacts Pauline's business.

      1. I hope they leave the juke box behind at their Western Addition branch. The sound level there was obnoxiously high making conversation impossible.

          Funny, the juke box is a selling point for them I thought.

        2. I can't wait. I never liked going across town to go to get the BEST deep dish pizza in the bay.

              YES! Thanks for this report, not 15 minutes ago did I do a search to see if this was true.

          1. When we were at the original location on Saturday they said it would open this weekend. Glad to hear they beat their estimate.

            And very glad to have one closer to home!
