Japanese food is more than just sushi and teriyaki, and if you come to On the Bridge in San Francisco, you will find that out first hand. On the Bridge “bridges the gap,” between East and West, playing on the flavors of both traditional Japanese cuisine and the classic Western flavors of authentic European cuisine.
Our decor is just as bright and colorful as our food is. Peruse through our collection of fashion magazines and manga while you eat. Manga is a Japanese-style comic book in different genres, like science fiction or action-adventure, and our decor mimics that.
A bowl of our soup at On the Bridge is almost a meal in itself. Choose Soba noodles, made of buckwheat, or Ubon, made from wheat. Each has their own unique flavor, and you can add veggies, shrimp, chicken, or a spicy curry. If you’re in the mood for going green, we offer a nice spinach salad, or have our Chef salad. We also have an excellent seafood salad.
Everyone loves cheese, and The Bridge offers fabulous rice au gratin dishes. A Bechamel cream sauce and three kinds of cheese cover rice pilaf, and then it is baked to a beautiful, golden brown. Add fresh vegetables, chicken, shrimp, or seafood toppings, and devour it’s cheesy goodness.
One of our most popular dishes is our seafood saute Japonaise. Calamari, shrimp, green mussels, and scallops are all cooked in a garlic sauce, and served with rice. We have plenty of unique pasta combinations as well. Calamari and kimchi spaghetti is one of our most unique pairings. Spaghetti and calamari are tossed with the spicy Korean delicacy of kimchi, a spicy, fermented cabbage.
On the Bridge serves lunch and dinner, seven days a week, and we have a unique assortment of beer and wine available. Cross the bridge, and savor the fusion flavor.
