A new restaurant is venturing into the San Francisco Ferry Building this summer. Eater broke the news that popular Filipino fusion eatery Señor Sisig will move into the old Brown Sugar Kitchen space, which closed in early 2020.

Señor Sisig launched as a food truck in San Francisco in 2010, eventually opening brick-and-mortar locations in San Francisco and Oakland as its Filipino burritos and tacos gained popularity. The restaurant also has plans to replace its small Oakland restaurant with a new, larger location with a full bar later this year.

The upcoming Ferry Building outpost of Señor Sisig will feature all of the restaurant’s greatest hits (burritos, tacos and nachos with Filipino flavors), including a vegan menu like the one available in Oakland. However, there will be some new items exclusive to the Ferry Building, including shareable bites and seafood selections inspired by the waterfront location. Señor Sisig also has a collaboration with Humphry Slocombe in the works — a “Churron” ice cream flavor, which will combine Filipino sweet snack Turon with churro chunks.

There will be cocktails as well, a first for Señor Sisig, although co-founders Gil Payumo and Evan Kidera are still in search of someone who can help bring a Filipino-Mexican-inspired cocktail menu to life (think flavors like ube, pandan and calamansi), according to Eater. The location will also feature both indoor and outdoor spaces.

“The Ferry Building is one of the most iconic locations in the city,” Kidera said in a press release. “As a born-and-raised San Franciscan, opening a Señor Sisig here is an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. Between our devoted local following and visitors from around the globe who come to the Ferry Building, we’re excited to share our food and Filipino culture from this space.”
