About Ravi Kapur

Chef Ravi Kapur began in 2012 by popping up under the LYC banner at friends’ restaurants, including Citizen’s Band. After a somewhat regular series of pop-ups for a year or so at Citizen’s Band, he moved his mobile eats to other venues. He did a couple of events at the underrated Contigo in Noe Valley and a series of dinners at State Bird Provisions. After gathering a loyal customer following, he became the chef/co-founder of Liholiho Yacht Club.

"I am pretty sure that chef Ravi will take over the world with this spam. I love everything about it. The texture and flavor is right on. I have never had a better version. The dish as a whole is so comforting and makes me really happy when I eat it. Every now and then you have to close your eyes when you take a bite from a dish—this is one of them for me."

"Today my phone broke for the 2nd time in 2 days, while playing basketball my shoes ripped, and pretty sure I have a concussion from that same game. But hey, spam and clams saved the day."
