Last time Niloufer Ichaporia King showed up to do brunch at Foreign Cinema, the city's food insiders sort of lost it. It's happening again. On June 26-27, Foreign Cinema's Gayle Pirie and John Clark are inviting in King, author of My Bombay Kitchen, to help fix breakfast, only this time, the food promises to wander far from the author's Parsi roots.

King likes to travel to warm places, apparently, and brunch will throb with the flavors of Veracruz, India, and what a press release calls "beyond." Date filling in the signature Pop Tarts, kheema turnovers, prawns and yogurt rice, salt cod pancakes: And more than one of the city's food insiders, we wager, losing it. Details after the jump.

  • 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.'"
