Ono Grindz - Inner Richmond ♥ [San Francisco]

Cynsa Nov 7, 2012 09:06 PM

"Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten." You feel like family at Ono Grindz - the service is Hawaii-friendly. The Loco Moco broke da mouth with its homemade mushroom gravy and freshly ground beef on rice with eggs to order. Delicious. I loved it and cleaned my plate.
Opened in May at 832 Clement Street between 9th and 10th Avenues.
Will go back for Chocolate Haupia Pie ... Chicken and Waffles aka Chicken Katsu with Spam and Cheddar Buttermilk Waffles. hmmm - Portuguese Sausage.

    I love this place. I've had breakfast here a few time. I've had the kimchee omlette, pancakes, french toast and the Big Island. I really liked the potatos especially since they were not covered in rosemary like every other place in SF.

    As of the other week they are now only doing Breakfast Fri-Sun mornings. The other days (and weekend) they are just open for lunch and dinner, I believe. Been meaning to get over there for dinner. Check with them for current hours, I don't want to get it wrong.

    Always friendly services and the malasadas are good.

      Dinner last night:
      http://flic.kr/s/aHsjCNbpB2
      I love my oxtails and this is 'ono'/delicious; richly meaty with a gravy lightly seasoned with tomato and just a hint of 5-spice. DH's Katsu Moco was crisply tender chicken and outshines standard 'fast food' loco moco. Don't go home without tasting the warmed Haupia Bread Pudding - if you want to float out the door with a happy face.

        Can anyone confirm those hours are correct? Yelp, their old website, and the Facebook page all show they close at 3 on Sundays, which is why we opted for ramen for dinner tonight instead.

        The door opened at 9 am today and at 9:10 am most tables were seated; by 9:30 am it was a full house — with one server. He never stopped running and kept smiling all the while. When we left at 10:30 am, there were five names on the blackboard's wait list with added staff to boost service.
        Without feeling rushed, we savored the richness of the organic Bicycle coffee, cheered on that the beans are delivered by bicycle
        http://www.bicyclecoffeeco.com/

        For sustenance, our day's starters were the Chicken and Waffles and The Big Island w/Portuguese Sausage. We're good for the rest of the day.
        Spam and cheese buttermilk waffles are crisp and savory with just enough to balance flavors; I'll order this again and again with the Chicken Katsu - hot, crunchy, and moist; the spicy housemade ketchup adds another umami layer.
        The Big Island spans a large plate with 2 eggs, Plantation Potatoes, Apple Banana pancakes with macadamia nuts and a choice of Portuguese sausage, bacon, or Spam. A-Lot-of-Tasty-Food-on-A-Big-Plate makes a happy DH. He gives thumbs up to the pancakes and the potatoes, perfect over-easy eggs, and Portuguese sausage.

        This is aloha time; take it easy. Your wait will be rewarded.

        Chicken and Waffles are served all day. Other breakfast dishes are available until 3 pm.
