Located just around the corner from the Powell Street station, or on the gateway to the Tandoorloin, Little

Delhi is one of the city's better Punjabi restaurants, with terra-cotta and gold walls, uniformed servers, and online ordering and delivery. Maybe we should have included a ruler or a pencil for scale here: Each of the restaurant's three giant lunch combos (also: veggie, $5.99; tandoori chicken, $7.99) is a Grand Slam of a meal, cheaper than a downtown burrito and twice as filling. You're not going to get off-menu, cooked-to-order dishes here, just a simple chicken curry, cardamom and cinnamon flashing out of its cloud of aromatics, and a deeply spiced, butter-bomb saag paneer. They come with puffy naan, its flipside shiny and brown from the tandoor, and enough rice to take home for tomorrow's lunch.

Little Delhi 83 Eddy (at Mason), 398-3173.

  • 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.'"
