What with travelers spending more time waiting in airports, and airplane food disappearing (a mixed blessing?), it makes sense that SFO's new Terminal 2 has more food vendors than gates.

For this week's full-length review, I took advantage of a couple of short trips on Virgin to eat my way around the new terminal. Much of the food is, indeed, better than what you'll find in terminals 1 or 3, while some of it is half-heartedly upscaled. You can read the full review for details, but I also gathered photographic evidence, which follows.

Of course, if you're flying United, Delta, or Singapore Air, you're going to have to go through security twice just to eat and then return to your gate. Remember: No liquids.

Even at Terminal 2, ubiquitous SFO stand Andalé serves gloopy, ill-seasoned Mexican food that measures down to the standards travelers are accustomed to.

Would I order it again? A better question: Would I even eat it if someone gave it to me for free?

  • 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.'"
