We saw this menu and of course we had to order No. 46. We think drugs are simply too refined these days. Who needs heroin, for example, when you can have opium?

So how was the dish? We had an extreme reaction. We'll tell all in the next installment of our ongoing series of reviewing dim sum restaurants.

We noticed that nobody in the Bay Area was reviewing dim sum restaurants on a consistent basis. Guidebooks all plug Yank Sing; many also note Ton Kiang. But how about those tiny places on Clement Street or in Chinatown where people mill outside waiting on Sunday afternoons? Dim sum is an integral part of this city's food culture, but getting the straight dope on restaurants after the top names has been impossible, until now.

We promise, we'll tell you all about Crude Drugs Chicken Feet, as soon as we recover. In the meantime check out these dim sum restaurants we've already reviewed:

Lee Hou

South Sea Seafood Village

House of Banquet

Happy Garden

Yet Wah

  • 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.'"
