Juhu Beach Club to Bring Indian Street Food to Temescal

An assortment of Juhu Beach Club's slider-size pav: the Holy Cow (center) and Sloppy Lil' P (on either side).

To the abundance of feathers in Oakland’s culinary cap, let’s add one more: our very own Top Chef alum, Preeti Mistry, who, as previously reported, has found a brick-and-mortar home for her popular Indian street food pop-up, Juhu Beach Club, in Temescal, at 5179 Telegraph Avenue (the former SR24 location).

Mistry said she’d been full-speed-ahead on plans to open in San Francisco’s Mission district when she and her then-business partner parted ways. At that point, she’d been living in Oakland for about a year and had watched amazing restaurant after amazing restaurant sprout up on this side of the bay.

“It seemed like the obvious choice was to open here,” she said.
