Name: Voodoo Potato Chips 

Brand: Zapp's

Origin: Gramercy, Louisiana

Found at: Queen's Louisiana Po-Boy Cafe (3030 San Bruno at Paul)

Cost: $1.25

Ingredients: Potatoes, peanut oil, sugar, salt, sodium diacetate, torula yeast, dextrose, onion powder, autolyzed yeast extract, citric acid, garlic powder, paprika and turmeric extract, paprika, spice, natural smoke flavor. 

Calories per serving: 203

The word: Kettle-cooked potato chips fried in peanut oil and doused with "secret" spices from Louisiana. 

Tasting notes: These have a bit of a kick, but aren't atomically hot, with a paprika-tinged finish. Good crunch, too.  

Buy it again? Yes, and probably with a bag or three of the similar Cajun Crawtator flavor as well. 

Extra credit: Take our cue and have a Louisiana-style throwdown with authentic po boys, seafood platters, and bags of Zapp's at the newly opened Queen's in the Portola District.

  • 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.'"
