Ground beef in a bun, topped with barbecued pulled pork. In the wrong hands, this is why you're fat. At 15 Romolo (at Broadway), this is known as the Dirty South-style burger. The kitchen has kindly made it slider-sized to keep arteries from clogging completely.

After devouring it, we were delighted to find chef Jake Kwan-Rosenbush in the kitchen, cooking to the appropriate soundtrack. Kwan-Rosenbush reports to executive chef Kate Borzee, a recent transplant from Coi, and the two come up with inventive and well-sourced menu items like this grass-fed and grain-finished beef burger along with co-managing partner Scott Baird. Thank heaven (and these guys) for portion control.

  • 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.'"
