From the Press

While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Reenact that scene from Big—but with more cardio—at Pier 39’s Musical Stairs, created by the same artist who was behind the movie’s famed keyboard.
After: Have a conversation with the parrots of Telegraph Hill, who can also be found near the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in Upper Fort Mason.
Chubby Noodle: A User’s Guide
Noodle Bar | “Freestyle” Asian Fusion | Bottomless Dim Sum Brunch | Cold Tea Cocktail | Two Locations
Noodles: chili prawns noodles
Cold dish: tuna poke with sesame, soy, and sambal
Hot dish: Korean-style pork tacos, which writers for The Infatuation said was “one of the top dishes, taco or otherwise, [they’ve] eaten in SF.”
How It All Began
Pete Mrabe opened Chubby Noodle as a humble popup inside of Amante, a North Beach bar. It became so popular that Pete—along with restaurateur Nick Floulis—decided to open a second location in the Marina district, this time inside his own brick-and-mortar space that’s just as vibrant as the food.
When to Go: weekend brunch (10 a.m.–3 p.m.), when they give each table exactly 90 minutes to enjoy bottomless dim sum dishes and four to five beverages. (Marina)
Where to Sit
Marina: Grab one of the 7-foot cedar tables that jut out from the kitchen. Here, guests enjoy up-close views of culinary magic while cooks double as servers.
North Beach (inside Amante): Claim a stool at one of the high tops near the “Hungry?” neon sign, which hangs above the service counter Chubby Noodle operates from.
Pair Your Meal with: the on-tap Cold Tea cocktail, which blends nigori sake, Jardesca ( an aperitif), ginger, serrano, honey, jasmine, and mint tea. (Marina)
From the Press
“Pete’s menu and flavor profiles span a lot of cuisines: Mandarin, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, and hey, you’ll find some tortillas on there too. It’s not fusion, it’s more a study in freestyle deliciousness.“ – Tablehopper
“If a Japanese izakaya and Chinese dim sum met a family-style party with California wines and hip-hop thrown in for good measure, it might look like Chubby Noodle Marina.” — Zagat
Finding the place can be a little tricky, as there’s no name on the Marina building. Just look for a sign featuring a noodle with a face bathing in a bowl of other, less personified noodles.
Bring along earbuds if loud music bothers you—the blaring soundtrack at the Marina spot cultivates an energetic vibe with ‘90s hip-hop.
If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Pisto’s Tacos (1310 Grant Avenue), co-owner Nick Floulis’ other restaurant that focuses on Mexican street food.
