Dongbei Mama Sweeps Into the Richmond, and Ike ― WTF?

Posted By on Fri, Mar 25, 2011 at 5:20 PM


Today in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

SFoodie's Tamara Palmer peered into the windows of MaoMao Kitchen, a yet-to-open Dongbei eatery on Judah earlier this week. Now comes word of Dongbei Mama at 4737 Geary (at 11th Ave.) in the Richmond, another Dongbei spot that took the place of Panda Country Kitchen, and is already open (its one and only Yelp review: three stars). The pitch: Northeastern Chinese dishes like spicy pig ears, crispy pig intestine, napa and pork belly stew, steamed lamb dumplings. And a name that makes us smile.

Meanwhile, Eater keeps its eye on the Marina, with word that Gravity (3251 Scott, at Chestnut) will morph into Hudson. The pitch: high-end bar, with appetizers that include a cheese plate and "edamame poppers." The edamame part makes them high-end.

And finally, from Grub Street: Ike. Holy shit, dude.

  • 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.'"
