Bini's Kitchen


Binita (“Bini”) Pradhan and team


Bini was born and raised in Nepal, and food was often the center of her family and community. Her mother cooked for the Nepalese royal family. After moving to San Francisco, Bini followed her mother’s passion and was accepted into La Cocina’s food business incubator program. Her signature momos (Nepalese dumplings) are stuffed with turkey, lamb, or a mix of fresh vegetables, mixed with her special blend of freshly ground and roasted spices, and steamed to perfection. In addition to her stand at the farmers market, Bini also now has her own restaurant at 1001 Howard Street, San Francisco. 


Ingredients are sourced locally when possible. They offer gluten-free, vegetarian, and dairy-free menu options, and they do not serve any beef. They source some of their spices directly from Nepal.

Fun Fact

Bini was trained as a chef with a bachelor’s degree in hotel management catering from Mumbai, India.
