  • Ginger cookies at E&O Asian Kitchen.

Sometimes, a truly great cookie can be elevated further by truly great presentation. The dessert menu at E&O Asian Kitchen humbly lists one dessert as "warm ginger cookies," but what you won't discover until it lands on the table is that the cookies are served in a silver bucket.

Some people might find food in a bucket offensive, a poke at your pig-out, but Cook E. Monster is delighted at this particular serving vehicle. Of course, this wouldn't mean anything if the cookies weren't excellent. They've got a rich flavor that's suggestive of molasses and are soft, and slightly spicy. They pleasingly fall-apart at the many crackly points that arise, offering a nice textural balance.

The cookies are also available packaged to go, but they probably will not make it that far -- even though they're large and you get five of them to an order.

  • 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.'"
