Description

Parada 22 is a casual and affordable restaurant serving home style Puerto Rican cuisine in San Francisco's storied Haight Ashbury neighborhood. Parada 22 is named after consulting chef Gloria Pinette’s neighborhood bus stop in her home town of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Gloria and her cousin Philip Bellber created a menu of authentic Puerto Rican dishes that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's lived in Puerto Rico. Cousin Philip is no stranger to Latin cuisine. He's also the founder / owner of San Francisco culinary institution Cha Cha Cha. Over the years, Philip has launched many favorite neighborhood eateries such as The Corner, Boogaloos. Bitterroot, Spaghetti Western and also Nightbreak, a storied alternative music venue. Located at 1805 Haight Street (between Shrader St & Stanyan St), Parada 22 is an exciting new complement to Cha Cha Cha, which is located right next door. It's an intimate space, with only 10 tables. They don't take reservations yet - so plan to arrive early to avoid a wait. They also offer take-out. Reviews from customers and the local press have been very flattering. Patricia Unterman raved about it in the SF Examiner "Quick, hearty, very affordable, Puerto Rican sustenance. I’ve never tasted better... Parada 22 feels like an airy apartment lined with family photos and memorabilia.

Tips from the Net @ Parada 22

This was my first time here, came with a friend while in town for the weekend. If the wife and I ever had the chance to get away this place would be at the top of the list for food. This place is pretty small and I wouldn't recommend it if you had small children or babies as almost all the tables are two tops and one large shared or family table. We showed up at 11:30ish foe lunch and got the only other open table. Service was good or server was friendly, she seemed genuinely in a good mood and was able to answer our questions about the menu. I ordered the marinated roasted pork (sorry i do not remember the name of the dish). The pork was very good and really juicy, and what i will order on my next visit. The rice was flavorful and must have been cooked in a broth or stock and didn't dilute the overall meal like plain white rice can sometimes do. The white beans, not my thing. They were cooked with peppers or a green chili or some kind and not a flavor i personally enjoy. The salad had a nice and light but tasty dressing and the fried plantains were subtle sweetness that were a great finish to the meal. GooglePlace - February 2018

Great food and atmosphere. The place it self is a bit small, and I could easily see them getting busy and having a long wait; but I would say the food is worth the wait. GooglePlace - February 2018

Mofongo in the Haight. Really good mofongo. Everything I've had at Parada 22 has been delicious, but for me it really is the mofongo. I wish there were more seats here-- the space is intimate. GooglePlace - February 2018

We really like this place but it is rare that we get a table... And when we do they have such a small staff that it takes a long time to get our order in and then to be served 😯 All in all the food is wonderful and everyone is super nice, but it is rarely worth the wait. We usually check and unless it's really empty we come back another time. GooglePlace - January 2018

So good! Great place to come with friends and try a little of everything. The sangria is delicious and all of the food is so flavorful. The atmosphere inside is also great as the restaurant is decorated very well. Everything I tried was delicious, and I can't wait to come back. GooglePlace - January 2018
