Babu Ji is not your typical Indian joint.
Jessi and Jennifer Singh, the team who created acclaimed restaurants, Babu Ji in NYC’s Alphabet City, Horn Please and Babu Ji of Melbourne, Australia (both sold 2015) and Dhaba at the Mill of Kyneton, Australia (sold in 2013), come full circle, bringing their signature creative and fun approach to Indian dining to San Francisco’s Mission District, where the duo originally met. The Hindi term, Babu Ji is an honorific title used to offer respect to a man in India. We use it playfully, bestowing the title on unlikely and simple men, but fully deserving by our measure. Our favorite Babu Ji is that self-appointed village ambassador type who knows everyone and everything that’s happening in town. He’s a real character who always has a great story.
