The Asian families who pack the place day and night know something: San Tung (1031 Irving at 12th Ave.) lives up to the hype and then some. With certain entrees at almost half price during the lunch-special hours of 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., it's also a great deal. We crave the dry-fried shrimp ($6.50 at lunch; $11 at dinner), which is actually served in a sweet, peppery sauce, a nice foil for the carrots, shrooms, and green onions. You may not always be up for the room's bustle -- ordering to go is a quicker option during the rush. That way, you can be digesting your food by the time others are just getting seated.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
