Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Spice girl: We swore we caught a big, spicy whiff of Indian Bento over the weekend, via a yellow Mini Cooper (driven by a woman named Pashmina) making home deliveries of disposable (okay, reusable) containers filled with stuff like organic spicy garbanzo curry with stir-fried vegetabes ($11.95). The Rub? You gotta buy five of 'em, minimum. Burrito Justice lets you smell the magic.

Eww-la-la: We thought Willie Brown was merely unleashing a cute Garchikism Sunday on SF Gate, when he offered this bit of overheard conversation designed to tweak the meat averse.

I overheard what has to be San Francisco's definition of vegetarian cuisine at Le Central the other day. When the woman at the next table was asked, "What will you have?" she replied, "Nothing that has had a mother." But then we thought again: Willie was at his beloved Le Central, the fusty bistro essentially unchanged since 1974. We're wondering if the squeamish diner wasn't a vegetarian after all, but merely wanted to avoid lunching on a bit of human DNA. What does she know about the cassoulet?

  • 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.'"
