Cold Coffee, Cold Chicken, and Hot Bama Messes: This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Jan 6, 2012 at 5:00 PM

Highlights from the blog this week:​

1. SFoodie's late-night cooking-channel scout, Michael Leaverton, discovers Bama Glama, whose dethgoth, party-planning host wears spiked sunglasses (yes, photographic evidence is provided). Leaverton's reaction to the show: coining the word "hatewatch." Bonus read: the comments.

2. Noah Sanders chats up James Freeman about Blue Bottle's brand-new bottled cold-brew coffees, now on sale at the Ferry Plaza kiosk, and perhaps soon in a supermarket in your neighborhood.

3. SFoodie comes up with our list of San Francisco 10 best burritos, a subject on which 50 percent of all San Franciscans consider themselves expert.

4. Cocktail correspondent Lou Bustamante hits up AQ, the new SoMa bistro, where the bartenders wield blowtorches and the Prey of Thieves cocktail combines scotch, port, and chickory-coffee bitters.

5. ABC Bakery & Cafe on Jackson may have a giant menu, but peer into the glassed-in kitchen and you'll see not one but two cooks dedicated to just one dish: the Hoi Nam chicken, poached and served cold with chicken rice, broth, and ginger-scallion sauce.

  • 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.'"
