Tucked into the car-free block of Buchanan known as Osaka Way, Miyako (1707 Buchanan/Osaka Way at Post) offers both Japanese and Korean dishes, from ramen and sushi to bibimbap. There are a lot of standards from which to choose, but there's clearly some fun being had with the maki: There is a huge selection of special sushi rolls with playful names and ideas. Never ones to back down from a challenge, we took on Mission Impossible ($13.95), a roll that features no less than four types of fish and three different sauces. Raw, spicy tuna, imitation crab (likely pollock), and cucumber are on the inside, with grilled white tuna, grilled salmon, jalapeno-infused masago, miso dressing, mustard, and cheese sauce on top. Less than halfway through, we understood its name, but still pressed on until the end in a battle between a full tummy and an enamored palate.

  • 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.'"
