Popular Santa Ramen in San Mateo is adding a second location expected to open April 8. Just as S.F.'s Green Chile Kitchen recently opened the spin-off Chile Pies (& Ice Cream) at its pre-expansion site, owners are launching offshoot Ramen Dojo in the original Santa space. Dojo will specialize in spicy versions of ramen.

Owner Kazunori Kobayashi is introducing his own variation of "stamina ramen," which will make Dojo the first shop of its kind in the Bay Area. A type found in Japan, as well as in New York and L.A., stamina ramen is supposed to give you plenty of energy (translation: plenty of calories). Dojo's spicy ramen will be available in three base broths: shoyu, tonkotsu, and miso. We feel invigorated just thinking about it.

Opening April 8:

Ramen Dojo 805 South B St. (at Eighth Ave.), San Mateo, (650) 401-6568; open daily 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5:30-9:15 p.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.'"
