For years, SFoodie has made a regular pilgrimage across the Golden Gate Bridge to San Rafael to indulge in Puerto Rican classics and new twists at Sol Food. Luckily, the restaurant has set up temporary digs in San Francisco to serve lunch at SF FoodLab, a restaurant that's part of the new pop-up project called A Temporary Offering at the Renoir Hotel (1106 Market).

The restaurant is offering an abbreviated menu in San Francisco featuring rotisserie meats, a veggie/plantain casserole and daily specials such as chicken soup with plantain dumplings or pasteles (beef or veggie pie), with most entrees priced between $8-10.

Customers order at the counter and can eat in the casual and comfortable space or easily take the meal to go. Orders are ready in moments, unlike in San Rafael where a wait to order is common practice.

Incidentally, owner Sol Hernandez was very gracious about us shamelessly begging her to permanently set up shop in San Francisco. For now, she says she plans to pack up and leave SF FoodLab after June 29, so there's still time to get a Puerto Rican fix in the city. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays.

  • 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.'"
