Creatively repurposing a former car repair garage, this new community-minded venture seeks to introduce a little zen to San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighbourhood. Onsen blends a restaurant plating seasonally-driven, Japanese-inspired cuisine – dishes such as rice porridge with house kimchi, miso and pickled quail egg and daily sashimi offerings – with a spa and wellness area that encompasses six treatment rooms and communal bathing area, including dry sauna, steam room and cold plunge shower. Characterful touches permeate the space, such as the former mechanic’s pit being used here as an eight-person hot soaking pool.
