Broke-Ass Foodie: Organic BBQ Pork Buns from Tru Gourmet

Posted By on Tue, Jun 16, 2009 at 12:25 PM

Tru Gourmet serves beautiful, creative, and organic dim sum at the Metreon's daily Island Earth Farmer's Market, including vegan potstickers and dumplings in varieties like wild butterfish and Dungeness crab. While certainly pricier than many dim sum places around town, TG's baked BBQ pork bun ($2.50 each, or three for $6; pictured above with Dungeness dumplings) is one of the tastiest and most substantial we've ever sampled. The wheat flour bun contains a generous filling of lean Prather Ranch pork. Warning: Three of these fancy meat donuts might just send you into a deep and delicious food coma.

  • 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.'"
