Ever had a burger in Sydney? It can skew wack, what with add-ons like beetroot slices and fried egg. Almost as disturbing as creepy-surfer Aussie TV chef Curtis Stone, the guy with the Rod Stewart rooster shag.

Fortunately for us, Sydney outpost South gets it righter than a lot of homegrown versions. The Queensland Wagyu burger with pickled pineapple and smoked cheddar would be on anyone's short list of local burger glory. The meat's tender, loosely packed, and beefy, and the slice house-pickled fruit doesn't overpower. South's chunky house chips (fries in U.S. of A.-speak) are just the right farinaceous foil -- rooster shag optional.

South Food + Wine Bar 330 Townsend #101 (at Fourth St.), 974-5599

  • 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.'"
