The Mission Frjtz - the original in Hayes Valley is about to close and move next door - is bigger and boasts more Euro style, from the French pop soundtrack, skateboards and glass mosaic art by owner Santiago Rodriguez on the wall to a black-and-white, curvilinear Art Nouveau decor by Natasha Shah Designs.An order of frjtz, which stop just short of steak cut, costs $3.25 to $4.75 depending on the number of dips. The 19 offerings range from curry ketchup and creamy wasabi mayo to a surprisingly addictive spicy yogurt peanut. Splurgers can upgrade to white truffle oil frjtz for 75 cents more.
But this incarnation of Frjtz is more than just gourmet sauces and delicious fries: they’ve got crepes and mussels too! Oh, and beer. Lots of fancy Belgian brews and ales and whatnot.
