Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Can't we all just get along?: Sure, you've lived a life devoted to moral relativism, but can you handle taco relatvisim? At Bay Area Bites, Thy Tran fills up the Hyundai and heads to the reservation for Native American fry-bread tacos. Note to the haters: She ain't havin' none of your bull-honky purism. For the taco aficionados among you: Do not pepper me with hate comments about what constitutes a "real" taco. Instead, Tran finds bliss in discs of shallow-fried biscuit dough topped with nacho-like bric-a-brac. Hell, call it a galette if you want to -- looks good to us.

The China syndrome: Is it just us, or does Foodhoe's meticulously documented report on dinner at Masa's make the place seem -- um -- tacky? It's not the food. That looks predictably seared and glisten-y, with the odd swipe of sauce on the plate. It's the plates themselves that appear hotel hefty, starting with the freebie amuse of turnip greens soup served in a clunky cup. We know -- scale can be deceiving. What looks like an office lunchroom mug is probably a tad more petite. Still, the truffle flan on a ziggurat of crockery? Just not feelin' it.

  • 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.'"
