A new concept from the team who brought us Steamy Piggy and Formoosa, will add another restaurant on Convoy. A liquor license application was recently filed at 4433 Convoy Street for Flama Llama, replacing Chef Chin which recently closed.
Their Website confirms they’re the latest sister restaurant to Steamy Piggy, which got its start down the road on Convoy in 2017. Steamy Piggy blends flavors from China, Korea, and Japan with dishes like Piggy Baos, Bulgogi Bowls, and Spicy Ramen.
Owner Frankin Chou Chan most recently opened Formoosa this year, featuring Taiwanese classic dishes like Beef Noodle Soup, Beef Roll, plus specialty coffees and teas.
Now their team is onto Flama Llama, which will bring a new take on Latin American cuisine to Kearny Mesa. Menu highlights include flavors from South America like Ropa Vieja or Mojo Pork served with beans and rice, Arroz Chaufa, a Cubano Sandwich, and Yucca Fries. Their drink menu features a Passion Fruit Limonada, Mango Agua Fresca, Mango Pineapple Sangria, and Horchata.
While Flama Llama does give a preview on their Website, the restaurant is not yet set up on social media. An opening date for Flama Llama has not been announced.
