La Victoria Bakery opened in the Mission in 1951, when Gabriel Maldonado brought his family from Mexico to San Francisco. Sixty years later, Gabriel's son Jaime Maldonado runs the restaurant, offering simple but elegant Mexican food.
La Victoria and Soul Cocina chef Roger Feely have built on the bakery's reputation by co-hosting regular pop-up restaurants, which offer delicious regional specialties made with the freshest seasonal ingredients, served in the Maldonado's popular neighborhood hangout. Normally, their dinner menus are a la carte, but for this upcoming winter dining event, they're offering a full prix fixe menu that blends flavors from around the world for an international holiday experience.
