Name: Pineapple Pasteles
Brand: Elisa's Café
Origin: San Francisco
Found at: Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom at Division)
Cost: $4.29
Ingredients: Organic sugar, organic flour, organic salt, organic pineapple, organic cinnamon, soybean oil, olive oil
Calories per serving: Not listed, which must mean they have no calories, right?
The word: Pasteles are made with a wide array of fillings that are often savory, but here they take on a simple, sweet twist. 
Tasting notes: These are clean, light, and nicely flaky -- even with the absence of butter.
Buy it again? Yes, and will maybe buy two next time. They went quick.
Extra credit: Try them in person at Elisa's Café (4901 Mission at France), a Nicaraguan restaurant in the Excelsior.

  • 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.'"
