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.
