V2: Take the T-Line for Amazing Africa Fries

The T train can feel like the red brick road that Dorothy never followed out of Munchkinland. Beyond the Dogpatch, where does it go?

Newly open in a bare-bones spot on Leland Avenue, V2 — as in "V-Squared" — is a trek for a lot of folks, but anyone in pursuit of an excellent, inexpensive burger should make a pilgrimage for the half- or quarter-pound option, in beef or a house-made vegetable patty. Throw some bacon or avocado over those thick-sliced onions and you may want to unhinge your jaw to consume it whole.

Not unlike some super-secret menu item at In-N-Out that only the elite know about and that can only be ordered when the moon is waxing gibbous, the Africa Fries are the proverbial heart attack on a plate. Covered with fried onions, ketchup, berbere mayo, and lots of cheese, they're an addicting combination of sweet and savory and must be eaten with a fork.

Sure, there isn't a lot of seating and you need to ask for a napkin, but if you're a burger fiend who considers keeping a meal below $10 while becoming very full a victory, you have a new place to conquer lunch.

  • 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.'"
