Highlights from the blog this week:

1. Luis Chong, our noodle correspondent, has been on a tear this week. Not only has he reported on the improved ramen at Kasumi and the noodles at Chotto, he also stuck his head into the new SOMA location of Turtle Tower to give us a preliminary report.

2. Alex Hochman tracked down Dan Jablow, whose Jablow Meats has just begun selling smoked bacon, pastrami, and ham at underground markets near you. It's not often a man asks himself, "How can I put my stamp on meat?" and comes up with 15-hour pastrami smoked over mesquite and cherry.

3. I was thrilled, and not a little relieved, to see new beehives appear at Hayes Valley Farm after the bee slaughter of July '10. When I called beekeeper Karen Peteros to find out more about the return of bees to the farm, she said she's starting up a series of affordable beekeeping classes.

4. Laura Beck headed to Little Bird Coffeehouse in the Tenderloin for breakfast and found blue corn waffles -- not only do they look striking, they're also gluten free.

5. Other life lessons from Ms. Beck, who's our interim SFoodie editor this week: You want to be a professional chef? Get real.

  • 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.'"
