First time we clicked a link and scrolled through a Jun Belen post ― a recollection of lechon in Manila ― we were smitten. S.F. blogger (and occasional SFoodie contributor) Belen has fierce photo skills and an eye for taking Filipino cooking out of the world of titas and vinyl tablecloths and into the realm of the modern foodie. Turns out Saveur was impressed, too. Today, Jun-Blog showed up as a finalist for its 2011 Best Food Blog Awards, for Best Regional Cuisine. Another favorite San Franciscan on the list: Irvin Lin's Eat the Love, a finalist in the Best Baking and Desserts category. Lin's also had a SFoodie byline. Congratulations, gentlemen.

  • 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.'"
