Look for the paper sign taped to the window of this three-month-old South Indian café near South Park, former home of Naan N' Chutney. Once at the counter, scanning the plastic-enclosed menu, go for the papery dosa. Mysore masala, say, with its spiced, chunky mash of potatoes dyed turmeric-yellow, which leaves you pondering the taste of black mustard and onion seeds on the walk back to work. Not even sips of fiery sambal sambar could obliterate it -- even if you wanted them to.

Ruchi 474 Third St. (at Bryant), 392-8353

  • 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.'"
