Last in our series of Chinese New Year's menus from Chinatown restaurants is this one, from Imperial Palace on Washington Street.

May you have a fertile new year.
  • May you have a fertile new year.

Like most of the other menus we printed, it's classic Cantonese:

Mincemeat with lettuce wrap
Honey walnut shrimp
Mushrooms and string beans with shortribs
Soup with chives and dried scallops
Young spring chicken
Garlic rice noodles with steamed lobster
Pig's feet braised with red bean curd
Mustard green with supreme broth
Steamed fresh fish
Chive noodles

One last thanks to Adobo Hobo's

Ed Chui and his parents for doing the translations.

Imperial Palace: 818 Washington (at Grant), 956-9888.

  • 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.'"
