Posted By on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 10:35 AM

Vietnamese soul food will be served at a Mexican restaurant on Jan. 7. - FLICKR/STEVE RHODES

Saigon Soul Pop-Up Dinner

Where: Regalito Rosticeria, 3481 18th St. (at Valencia), 503-0650

When: Mon., Jan. 7, 5-9 p.m.

Cost: $45 for full tasting menu (purchase in advance via Eventbrite)

The rundown: Hey, it's 2013, so the concept of a Vietnamese soul food pop-up inside a Mission Mexican restaurant should be anything but a surprise. For this occasion, mobile street food vendor Bicycle Bánh Mì is collaborating with chef Seth Stowaway, who cooks for Bar Agricole and HapaSF, to fuse American Southern culinary sensibilities with traditional Vietnamese classics.

They've devised a five course tasting menu that includes items such as shrimp, grits, and spare ribs with Vietnamese herbs, spicy beef noodle soup with collard greens and pineapple-mint relish, and rice paper rolls with Dungeness crab and chicories.

Tip: Menu items ($12-15) can be ordered individually for walk-ins who haven't purchased the five-course option in advance.

  • 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.'"
