Part of a new collective of businesses in one small building, ICHI Lucky Cat Deli brings a super-affordable sushi spot to lunchtime in Bernal Heights; most five-piece rolls are under $5, and sashimi goes for $3 a slice. But if you're in the mood for something hot and decadent, a pork tonkatsu slider might be in order. Crowned with beige tonkatsu mayonnaise, the pork patty bears a magnificently dense and grease-free crunch, something which our copious amount of research into the fried depths has rarely encountered. It might look small, but big things come in small packages, and this is plenty satisfying for lunch. You could also get crafty and purchase a slice of, say, maguro sashimi to throw on top for a unique treat (we also had dreams of smearing our slider with the tub of luscious uni in the case). There are also eggplant and micro-greens sliders for the vegetable-inclined.

ICHI Lucky Cat Deli 331 Cortland (at Bennington), 822-4024.

  • 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.'"
