How many effing yogurts do you need to choose from? Choice is overrated, especially in the Whole Foods dairy aisle, when you wish somebody could just hand you the damn Wallaby Peach Passion and let you move on.

That's one of the joys of the $9 prix-fixe lunch at Jai Yun in Chinatown. You sit. The nice lady brings. You eat. And what she brings is pretty much an untarnished delight: A heap of enoki that look like filament-thin noodles, dressed up with feathery bits of frilly tripe; fluffy wedges of eggplant cooked Sichuan style.

It's all quietly delicate, and there's no telling in advance what you'll get. Which is the point.

Jai Yun 680 Clay (at Kearny), 981-7438

  • 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.'"
