Cafe Asia at the Asian Art Museum

With a menu spanning all of Asia with a Western twist, Cafe Asia at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco completes the immersive cultural experience. Sit in the outdoor dining terrace overlooking the Fulton Street Mall, or look out the glass windows into the south wing of the Central Court. The pan-Asian food is served cafeteria-style, with special dishes sparked by current exhibits. Drawing from her extensive background in Asian fare, Executive Chef Melinda Quirino dreamed up the menu using locally-grown ingredients that varies from Tokyo Ramen Noodle Soup to Sake Glazed Sliders and Bulgogi-Korean Spicy Beef.
