About Mel Lopez

Born and raised in Stockton, CA. Started off cooking in the kitchen with my grandma since I was 5. Mixed Mexican and Filipino heritage means that I ate GOOD all the time. Came to SF after high school and met my bestie at Bix as young line cooks and we vowed to open up a restaurant together one day. Pearl 6101 is a woman driven, fairly priced, non-bullshit, cozy neighborhood spot that stands out from what SF is now more accustomed to in the best way possible. ✌🏽😎✌🏽
