Janice and Brandi Dulce’s new venture is an instant classic.

“San Francisco’s loss has become the East Bay’s gain—in the form of lumpia with sweet chili sauce, triple-cooked pork belly, and island-inspired cocktails. The beloved Filipino pop-up FOB Kitchen has crossed the Bay to take up permanent residence (liquor license included) in Oakland’s Temescal neighborhood.”

“Married chef-owners Janice and Brandi Dulce’s flavorful Filipino cuisine, formerly a cult favorite for pop-up meals at San Francisco’s Gashead Tavern, is satisfying a craving Temescal didn’t even know it had, and the pretty interior is made tropical by both the sunny decor and lush cocktails.”
