This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Aug 5, 2011 at 5:30 PM


Highlights from the blog this week:

1. Caroline Chen discovers that huge numbers of San Francisco restaurant staffers are working illegally. The San Francisco Health Code declares no one with a venereal disease -- or bubonic plague, for that matter -- should be allowed to work in a restaurant. Somehow, we think this law isn't enforced often.

2. This week's top five: SFoodie's favorite hot dogs in San Francisco. Missing from the list: We couldn't get in to AT&T Park in time to verify that our favorite ballpark frank, at the Hebrew National stand, was still there. Giants fans?

3. Laura Beck discovers that ladies are a special group of people worthy of their own lady gin. Also, that she loves the floral taste of lady gin. SFoodie wants to know: Is Bloom strong enough for a man, even though it's made for a woman?

4. W. Blake Gray attends the preview dinner for the SF Street Food Festival and falls for Azalina Eusope's Penang Curry Bomb, which she has concocted for the Aug. 20 event. It's a combination of a roti canai and a slider, with a buzzy heat and blueberries (!).

5. New truck alert: The intrepid Luis Chong chats up the owner of Smokin' Warehouse BBQ in the Bayview and learns he's fitting up a truck to bring his cue to the northern reaches of San Francisco.

  • 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.'"
