Yasukochi's Rice Cracker Cookies Solve the Salty/Sweet Conundrum

Tucked inside the tiny Super Mira grocery store, the 35-year-old bakery Yasukochi's Sweet Stop (1790 Sutter at Buchanan) is largely known for its version of the classic Blum's coffee crunch cake. There's not a lot here to remind you of the neighborhood's Japanese heritage but for one other highlight under Yasukochi's glass. It's an original invention that would be easy to miss while gazing at cake.

Rice cracker cookies (sold in bags of a dozen for $9) satisfy that complicated simultaneous craving for both salty and sweet, though the taste does lean more towards the former than the latter. The rich butter cookie shatters to reveal a more than generous smattering of crushed orange rice crackers inside. And if you just can't get that coffee crunch cake off your brain, Yasukochi's will sell you a bag of the topping for five bucks.

  • 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.'"
