While the menu at Papalote is as meat-centric as any other burrito place, the restaurant does periodically bring out some vegan specials. One example is the vegan adobo burrito that gets unleashed during occasional "Mexi-Pino" days, and there's currently a vegan tamale filled with soft cubes of locally grown organic pumpkin. It contains zero lard, of course, which we can't say we miss.

These are pumpkin tamales sweet enough to stand in for dessert, yet restrained enough to work as a main. Fleeting as a Shamrock shake, they're available weekends through Thanksgiving at Papalote's Mission location only.

Papalote Mexican Grill: 3409 24th St. (at Valencia), 970-8815.

  • 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.'"
