Siamese-kaze, a Little Lime-on-Lime Action at Basil Canteen

Asian citrus is popping up with more frequency on drink menus around town, but the Siamese-kaze at Basil Canteen is hardly a bandwagon-jumper. It's been a staple here since the place opened in 2008. Vodka infused with Thai kaffir lime is whirred together with house-made lemongrass syrup and a wedge of the less tangy American/South American lime. It makes a lovely foil for the spicy Chiang Mai- and Bangkok-inspired street snacks and dishes on the menu.

Basil Canteen: 1489 Folsom (at 11th St.), 552-3963.

  • 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.'"
