Local Flavor: Fried Green Tomatoes at Cajun Pacific

A recipient of Best Weekend Restaurant in SF Weekly's annual Best Of issue, Cajun Pacific (4542 Irving at 47th Ave.) is a sweet little taste of Louisiana in the decidedly non-N'Ahhlins avenues of the Sunset.

While the menu changes from week to week, the fried green tomatoes with remoulade ($8/$12 with grilled shrimp) is likely to star throughout the summer while tomatoes are around; the ever-lovely host Stacey is hand-picking them herself for maximum flavor. The appetizer joins other CP staples like gumbo, Creole crawfish and pasta, and po' boys as well as playful one-off ideas. 

The restaurant will be open most Thursdays through Sundays through the summer, but will be closed on the weekend of July 30. Reservations aren't required for this teeny tiny place, but they're an awfully good idea unless you want your flaggin' fanny to wait in whipping wind.

  • 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.'"
