It was Eat Real that shamed us: So much food served up from trucks, so little of it, Jonathan Kauffman and I realized, from mobile vendors who toughed the sometimes mean streets of San Francisco long before truck food trended French, or Filipino, or TyFlo. In the weeks since, we've concentrated on grazing the city's traditional loncheras. Here, in descending order of deliciousness, are six of the city's most prominent.

1. El Norteño: Bryant at Harriet (between Sixth and Seventh Streets).

What to get: Goat and tongue tacos, $1.50 each.

Grade: A

  • 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.'"
