Proper Food launches chef-designed on-the-go meals for airport passengers
From Monday, July 11, SFO passengers bound for flights will be able to purchase a chef-led take-out meal, salad or sandwich from Appropriate fooda concept of entrepreneurs who met at Stanford.
The chain was founded in San Francisco’s financial district in 2014 by now co-CEOs Howard and Dana Bloom, with a menu created by founding executive chef and COO Juan Muñoz (Cammpton Place, City Club of San Francisco) . It is now a bicoastal operation, with nine locations in SF and four in New York. This location just south of San Francisco will make it the 10th for the Bay Area.
The Blooms’ idea was to offer fresh, seasonal food on the go or, as they call it, “a new version on the go”. All meals are prepared daily in a South San Francisco Police Station kitchen and delivered to each location. At the end of the day, leftover meals are donated.
Popular dishes include Chimichurri Hanger Steak, Sweet Potato Enchiladas, and Korean BBQ.
The special summer menu includes a Tuscan eggplant sandwich with roasted marinated eggplant, pecorino cream, artichoke spread and fresh basil on focaccia; a summer salad with fresh peaches, figs and goat cheese; a chicken, pesto and hummus wrap with homemade hummus and roasted tomatoes in a whole wheat wrap; and a Tofu Asada Burrito, with marinated organic tofu, white cheddar, basmati rice, black beans, avocado and salsa.
Catch an early flight? There are a dozen breakfast options, including breakfast plates with scrambled eggs and kale, gluten-free oatmeal, and Chiquito breakfast burritos.
Details: Proper Food will be open daily for breakfast and lunch from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., with longer hours later this summer, at Terminal 1 at San Francisco International Airport. https://properfood.com/
