While crêpes and curry might sound like an odd combination, the one we tried at the Alemany Farmers' Market recently was delicious, not to mention a nice way to cope with the current cold weather.

Operated by a very friendly woman named Azalina, the Malaysian Lacy Crêpes food stand lets you customize your curry plate. Pick your choice of curry: mint chicken or a vegetarian option (kabocha squash and lentil), and your choice of lacy crêpe, either green onion or curcuma (a.k.a turmeric).

Our favorite combination was the mint chicken over green onion crêpe ($5.50). The crepe was made in a random lace pattern (hence the name), and the flavorful curry was loaded with ground meat, which was just fine with us. If you feel the need for some healthy veggies, perhaps ask for a half and half with the veggie curry. Also on the menu: samosas ($3.50 for two) and chai banana fritters ($3.50).

Malaysian Lacy Crêpes Alemany Farmers' Market, 100 Alemany (at Peralta); Sat., 8 a.m.-3p.m.

  • 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.'"
