Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

High on a budget: The New York Times filled up on foil-wrapped fatties over the weekend as part of its Save or Splurge travel guide (the save: less than $250 a day; the splurge: conspicuous consumption at Coi). According to Jaime Gross, it's possible to feast for less than $20 in the "multiethnic Mission District" -- as long as you stick to the burritos at El Farolito, Papalote, and El Metate. But what's with wiggy girl in the pic, looking equal parts stoned and funereal? And is she really dipping a tab of E in guacamole?

Stuff on bread: Hot Food Porn offers up a half-yearly meditation on food trends so far, including these: hot dogs/sausages, all types of tacos except Mexican ones, slow food in trucks, even slower food in carts, ridiculous ice cream flavors, shutting down restaurants, and awesome mini burger commercials. Allow us to add a few more: gin, pizza that just won't die, and public butchery. What's next? Um, more pizza?

  • 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.'"
