EaterSF just hipped me to the post that Chron food critic Michael Bauer put up on his Between Meals blog this morning. In "A few of my favorite things," Bauer names 10 of his favorite local comfort foods and asks what ours are. Read his entry and all of the comments. He's started a wonderful little meme there, to which I'll respond over here and ask that you do the same. It's fun! These are my current faves, in no particular order, and you can probably tell that seafood in the deep fryer and dessert are great sources of personal comfort:

1. Butterscotch pudding at Nettie's Crab Shack

2. Liquid Chocolate in Venezuelan flavor at Christopher Elbow

3. Apple pie milkshake at Sparky's 24 Hour Diner

4. Wasabi-garlic potato salad and fried shrimp cake at Delica RF-1

5. Fish and chips at Piccadilly Fish & Chips

6. Carne asada burrito at Papalote

7. Scones and lemon curd at Lovejoy's Tea Room

8. Panna cotta with truffled honey at Zaré at Fly Trap

9. Crab cakes at Cajun Pacific

10. It's-It original flavor ice cream sandwich

  • 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.'"
