New American Restaurant San Francisco
International Smoke, the wildly popular collaboration between Chef Michael Mina and lifestyle expert and bestselling cookbook author Ayesha Curry, opened on November 13, 2017 at 301 Mission Street. Inspired by Curry’s and Mina’s individual heritages and travels, International Smoke explores global approaches to fire, grilling, and smoke to create flavorful dishes that bring communities together all around the world. Food is at the heart of community, and this restaurant truly celebrates this.
Curry and Mina have created a menu that highlights an array of quality spices, products, and cooking techniques from around the globe. International Smoke will take guests on a journey to distant places with elevated takes on classic dishes such as: Jerk spice-seasoned Double Duck Wings, sticky mango, and revered Jamaican condiment known as green seasoning. Lemongrass Pork Chop, thinly sliced and charred on the grill, is served with stir fried clams, glass noodles, soy and lime. Binchōtan-Grilled Lobster with Japanese curry-spiced yakiudon. Punjabi-spiced Fish Fry with turmeric pickles, and raïta. The menu also features a section called “Three Little Pigs,” offering three different inspired preparations and flavors of pork such as St. Louis Spareribs, Cuban “Mojo” Ribs, and Japanese Miso Ribs.
