Do not go to Whole Foods to buy pozole. But say it's lunchtime, and you find yourself in the SOMA store, facing the deli wall of murky soups in their plastic containers. In that case, the chicken pozole is a find: toothy hominy corns, hunks of dark meat that don't suck, and an orangey-red broth with the warm-tobacco taste of ancho chile. Of course, setting aside microwave button-pressing, the whole interactive element of pozole will be lacking ― no customizing at table with toasted oregano, shredded cabbage, onion, lime ― something, arguably, that's pozole's greatest pleasure. But consider it axiomatic: tasty, less-than-perfect pozole > deli case baguette sandwich. Every time.

Whole Foods SOMA 399 Fourth St. (at Harrison), 618-0066

  • 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.'"
