Restaurant Details

You have to give the smiling corn-cob sign above Pamonha's Brazilian Cuisine credit for truth in advertising. The cafe specializes in corn, or more specifically, a type of sweet-corn tamal (called a pamonha, or "pah-MO-nyah") rare in North America. The cafe's central Brazilian food is meat-centric and plain to the point of boredom, so you'll want to focus on daily specials like moqueca and feijoada, or the planet's most baroque burger, the X-tudo, whose toppings include hot dogs and corn. The reason for heading to Pamonha's, of course, are the pamonhas, each wrapped in corn husks and weighing in at a pound. Whether they're sweet or salty and studded with cheese and sausage, the pamonhas have the flavor of fresh corn pudding and the texture of a long-stirred polenta.

  • 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.'"
