HAL 9000 Guest Chefs at Tonight's '2010: Seafood Odyssey' at Mission Street Food

Posted By on Thu, Jan 7, 2010 at 8:00 AM

The theme of tonight's Mission Street Food is "2010: Seafood Odyssey" and features a menu designed by HAL 9000, the famously sentient computer Arthur C. Clarke created for 2001: A Space Odyssey. HAL's just back

from Jupiter, apparently, with a slew of retro-futuristic dishes priced at $12 and under,

including shrimp and uni-stuffed tofu, scallion soubise, and chili

vinaigrette; spicy crab cake with fried plantain, young coconut juice,

and rice paddy herb; and nori financier with roasted pineapple and

whipped mascarpone. Service begins at 6 p.m. at Lung Shan (2234 Mission

at 18th St.). E-mail reservations ( will be

accepted until 3 p.m. today -- they're highly recommended. Profits will

benefit the St. Anthony Foundation, contributing to its daily meal service to more than 2,600 locals. Note that MSF also states it won't resume its regular Saturday night service until Jan. 23.

  • 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.'"
