  • Hapa SF's William Pilz is doing two pop-ups this month.

Mod-Filipino food truck Hapa SF has announced two pop-up dates this month, Sat., Jan. 22, at La Victoria in the Mission and Tue., Jan. 25, at Bar Basic in SOMA. Owner William Pilz tells SFoodie the idea is to preview dishes that might end up on Hapa's regular menu.

Pilz's pulutan pop-up at La Victoria last summer left SFoodie raving ― expect the Jan. 22 dinner to be like that in form, anyway: reservations (e-mail*), table service, BYOB, kid-friendly.

The Bar Basic event promises to have more of a street-food feel, with Pilz preparing food on the Hapa truck and having servers run it to tables inside the bar. Another big difference: Bar Basic is walk-ins only. And Pilz is working with Par Basic to design a couple of special drinks for the event ― probably a calamansi cocktail and a coco-tini.

Here's the preliminary menu for both events, obviously subject to change:

• "Kilawin" chicken

• Ginger-scallion chicken lumpia

• Salad of duck confit adobo with County Line spicy lettuces and baby beets

• Dungeness crab and artichoke pancit

Mechado sliders with achara

• Shellfish arroz caldo

• Vegetarian "sisig": Hodo Soy tofu and Ferry Plaza farmers' market vegetables

• Halo-halo cannoli

• Calamondin cheesecake

La Victoria: 2937 24th St. (at Florida), 642-7120

Bar Basic: 510 Brannan (at Fourth St.), 227-0449

For La Victoria reservations, e-mail with name, size of party, preferred time (with second choice), and your phone number.

  • 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.'"
