Five highlights from the blog this week:

Luis Chong announces himself a fan of Fins on the Hoof, Todd Middleton's new food truck -- though he disappoints SFoodie by realizing that the truck doesn't serve exotic genetically modified seafood.

Tired of lists proclaiming Buca di Beppo San Francisco's kid-friendliest restaurant, W. Blake Gray determines which of San Francisco's restaurants are least family-friendly. Next time you want to hit Alembic for a couple of cocktails and some bone marrow you'll need to tie up your 3-year-old outside.

Caroline Chen takes in the roar of press releases surrounding the opening of a Calbee store -- S.F.'s first branch of a Japanese snack food chain -- and then does a little calculation. Are Calbee's veggie snacks really healthy? Uh ...

Do you really want to drink Mission Chinese Food's "house white" with your kung pao corned beef? W. Blake Gray didn't think so -- he took advantage of the restaurant's inexpensive corkage fee to bring a few bottles of his own.

Caroline Chen has advice to vegans: If you want to do the crime, now you can do the time (without sacrificing your food values), because S.F. jails serve vegan meals. (Just make sure it's not a major felony, because the state pen isn't so seitan-friendly.)

  • 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.'"
