  • Vegetarians can apparently thank St. Francis back for its veggie burger.

Five highlights from the blogs and beyond:

1. This week, SFoodie hit the two-thirds mark on our countdown of our 92 favorite dishes (well, this year), covering ravioli in Russian Hill, SOMA breakfast pastries, and Burmese noodles in the Richmond.

We here at SFoodie do want to note that, having read our fair share of bell

hooks and Adrienne Rich in college, there's no

hierarchy to the 92, but instead a collective of equally delicious,

mutually supportive foods.

2. Laura Hooper Beck just posted a list of her seven favorite veggie burgers in the Bay Area. Plant Cafe I knew about, Saturn Cafe I'd heard about, but the St. Francis Fountain devil burger? Interesting. So far, commenters have added veggie burgers at Namu and Hotel Utah to her rankings.

3. Seeing Roger Feely, aka Soul Cocina, announce his last dinner feels like the closure of an era. Feely emerged as one of the great community-builders of S.F.'s street cart scene, helping to organize events, both indoors and out, and help shepherd fledgling food businesses into commercial kitchens. Most of us here are sad to see him leave town.

4. Some dishes you have to taste to appreciate, while the genius of

others can be sniffed out just by reading their titles. Jun Belen

identifies one of the latter: a pulled pork adobo sandwich in Oakland.

5. Lastly, Alastair Bland assigns some weekend homework: tasting barrel-aged beers.

  • 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.'"
