Sandwich Trailers, Beer Restaurants, and Berkeley Bowl: This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Dec 2, 2011 at 4:50 PM


Highlights from the blog this week:

1. Laura Beck lays out a few strategies for surviving a trip to the Berkeley Bowl. It involves caffeine, bicycle helmets, and not being afraid to tackle women four times your age. Note: She does not guarantee that your groceries will be intact by the time you exit.

2. Marla Simon scouts out Hil's Cooking Mobile Trailer, a new sandwich truck in a silver capsule-shaped Airstream from a woman who's been appearing at Oakland's First Fridays.

3. SFoodie lists its five favorite restaurants for beer geeks -- restaurants where the food and the booze are equal, and sometimes complimentary, draws. Naturally, a few of the city's beer geeks have taken offense. Feel free to join the fray in the comments.

4. SFoodie coffee correspondent Noah Sanders reports that De La Paz's cocktail-bar-like cafe is scheduled to open in February -- but the owners are doing test runs every Friday, serving a limited menu of drinks and sampling the week's freshest single-origin coffees.

5. Lou Bustamante gives a comprehensive preview of Mosto, the new tequila bar connected to the second Tacolicious outpost in the Mission. Palomas, margaritas, sotol ... we'd drink that.

  • 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.'"
