Bar Bambino, Sisig Surprises, & Pinkie-Wavers: This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Sep 2, 2011 at 4:30 PM


Highlights from SFoodie this week:

1. Alanna Hale interviews Bar Bambino's Lizzie Binder (here's part 1 and part 2) about the Mission restaurant's switch from all-around-the-boot to Northeast Italian food, how she California-izes heavy traditional recipes, and the new cafe coming this fall.

2. Luis Chong discovers Ramen Underground, a new noodle shop in FiDi run by a former Katana-ya cook.

3. W. Blake Gray walks into a dive bar ... and ends up eating a beefy French onion sandwich. Despite feeling like a pinky-waver for trying to order white wine at Clooney's, Gray ends up chatting with the chef of the Galley, its new-ish restaurant, and eating a little ahi-watermelon crudo.

4. I find what may be my favorite sandwich this fall, the Sisig Surprise at Toast Deli in Daly City. Chopped pork doused in soy and lime, a perfectly fried egg, White Chicks on TV -- pretty much a peak experience.

5. Lou Bustamante interviews Joe Alessandroni, manager of Rickhouse, which was just voted the best "high-volume bar" in America. You can have craft cocktails without waiting for your bartender to measure out every ingredient with an eyedropper? Bustamante says yes.

  • 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.'"
