Man, we're salivating just looking at that picture and remembering that smoked beef sausage and glossy toasted bun. Damn. We drove down to Redwood City to check out Southern Sandwich, the new truck from Nathan and Brett Niebergall. The brothers owned Frisee in the Castro, which closed in late 2008 and was not the type of place where you could get pulled pork or hush puppy po'boys. But as SFoodie editor John Birdsall discovered when he interviewed them, they wanted to cook the food of their childhood for this mobile venture.

During our visit, a Redwood City police officer told the Niebergalls they had five minutes to close up because they'd been parked there for more than a half hour, so we dashed out quickly and forgot to drown our Carolina pulled pork sandwich in one of several tempting-looking hot sauces. In the end, though, we are still dreaming about that smoked sausage.

Southern Sandwich is expected to return to Redwood City this week after a week off working on kitchen fixes that will hopefully lead to a permit to operate in San Francisco. In the meantime, it's definitely worth a trip if you're looking for new lunch options on the Peninsula.

  • 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.'"
