A casual noshery featuring Asian street food is preparing to open at Crow Canyon Commons in March, the restaurant founder confirmed Tuesday.

'Spice Kit' is operated by French-trained chefs Will Pacio and Fred Tang. The duo hung up their toques years ago to open counter-service eatery featuring Asian street food with locally-sourced ingredients.

This will be the third location for the team, with locations in Palo Alto (340 South California Ave.) and San Francisco near Rincon Hill (405 Howard Street). The exact address of the restaurant in Crow Canyon Commons is not yet known.

If you're hankering for grilled pork belly, a classic bánh mì sandwich or the Korean ssäm bap, this place has you covered.

"Frankly, Spice Kit’s ssäm, buns and taro chips are about as good as any food can get," reads a 2011 review of the restaurant in the San Francisco Examiner.

Take a look at their menu here.

It would be helpful when you are mentioning new restaurants to say where the new restaurant is located by not just the center name.

cwentker: My apologies, I didn't note that the address isn't yet determined by the city's economic developer. I'll update the story to clarify. Thanks!

It is next to iTrim in the old Shampouches spot. Down by zPizza and Jamba Juice. There is also a Noodles company opening in the old burrito store.
