Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Eat, pay, and get out: Hot Food Porn gets all reflective about the kind of restaurant a chef who refused to compromise would open. No distracting bar scene and extra layers of service -- it's a matter of getting potentially douche-y staff the hell out so a chef can focus on cooking, then getting dishes to diners without making them cycle through extraneous hands. What would such a place look like? Hint: Check out HFP's pic homage to Dennis Leary's Canteen.

The eww report: Cooking with the Single Guy checked out Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' Big Idea Party last night, featuring street snacks from Mission Street Food. Pics, descriptions -- only Cooking turned up a bit squeamish about the animal fats in some dishes. What did he like? So-called Blasian Chicken (heavily charred bird over minty bread hunks), sort of. Thanks for the reporting, Cooking -- hope you stopped for pizza on the way home.

  • 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.'"
