Pisco Sour, a Peruvian Celebration at La Mar

Posted By on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 2:31 PM


La Mar Cebicheria Peruana's Pisco Sour (Pisco Quebranta, lime juice, simple syrup, egg white, and regional bitters) has felled us on more than one occasion. Though Pisco is a brandy (i.e., distilled from grapes), the foamy egg white fills us with nostalgia for (don't judge) the Orange Julius. We always seem to sip the foam way too quickly, watching the little orange dash of bitters placed carefully in the center collapse into a formless mass at the bottom of the glass. Be careful: It's a recipe for wobbly walking. The restaurant is offering them for $5 on Feb. 4-5 in honor of the practically official Peruvian holiday, Pisco Sour Day, on Feb. 5.

La Mar Cebicheria Peruana: Embarcadero at Pier 1 1/2, 397-8880.

  • 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.'"
