After almost two years of successful pop-ups Clement Hsu, James Wong, and Katherine Campecino are opening a brick-and-mortar location of Breadbelly, their bakery/café concept dedicated to impeccably executed Asian pastries. Hsu, Wong, and Campecino met while working the kitchen of Michelin-starred Atelier Crenn in San Francisco. The trio decided to open a pop-up that accurately represented modern Asian pastries and breads, which could not be found in the surrounding Bay Area.
The new space, opening Thursday, December 20, is located at 1408 Clement Street, and will feature many of the pop-up’s already popular dishes, including adzuki beans sticky buns, kaya toast, and sesame cookies. Breadbelly will serve Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters and offer four wines and three beers.
