The philosophy behind Paper Rooster is simple: unfussy fare featuring quality ingredients and a crafted, practical approach to humble, satisfying food.


Why Paper Rooster? 

Paying homage to his Chinese-American roots and the powerful history of Paper Sons and Daughters - a practice borne out of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 - owner Stanley Y. brings to the forefront an era of danger and sacrifice that planted the seeds to the strong and vibrant Chinese community in San Francisco today. Roosters are often regarded in Chinese legends as symbols of light and good fortune - and of course, carefully prepared chicken is at the heart of Paper Rooster's menu! We welcome everyone through our doors and hope you will join us soon.
