Prepare to get all sticky.

Silly us. Just when we suggested that street vendors might be beginning to exhaust cooking genres comes Adobo Hobo, hawker of Filipino adobo. Turns out the Hobo's named Jason, a guy in real estate who learned the ins and outs of the dish from his mom (duh). He's making his maiden cart voyage in the Mission this weekend -- follow along on Twitter to find out where and when. 

Jason said he'll be using a turkey deep-fryer to keep the stuff warm, with a steamer setup for rice. He's taking a better-for-you approach to the classic dish: chicken only (skin removed), low-sodium soy, and -- here's the real departure from tradition -- he's skimming the fat from the surface. A plate of adobo and rice will cost you $5. And if you miss Jason this weekend (or, presumably, next), you'll be able to taste what he calls "cultural comfort food" at the Eat Real Festival late next month in Oakland.

  • 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.'"
