  • Lean cuisine: Adobo Hobo's sisig is less fatty than the traditional version.
We were lucky to be able to sample Adobo Hobo's pork sisig tacos before they sold out at last Wednesday's street-food lunch in South Park. Featuring pork butt, Hobo's version of Filipino tacos contained leaner meat than is usual with sisig, which is traditionally made with meat picked off a pig's head, marinated in lemon juice or vinegar. Diced grilled pork was served on freshly warmed tortillas, topped with chopped onions, jalapenos, sour cream, and crushed crispy chicharrón (fried pork rinds) -- a mouthwatering combination. And at two for $5, the price was easy on the wallet. Adobo Hobo introduced sisig tacos in December; we're hoping we see them again at future street-food gatherings.

  • 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.'"
