This week's guide to SF's best pop-ups and temporary restaurants.

Bicycle Banh Mi

When: Thursday, Nov. 21 at 6:30 p.m.

Where: Haus

The Rundown: With all the pho options in the city, we're sure the city has room for another temporary offering. Bicycle Banh Mi will pop up for Soup Night this Thursday at Haus with hot bowls of rich broth, silky noodles, sliced beef bountiful herbs, and bean sprouts. The coffee shop will turn into a little noodle house with southern-style pho options like phở bo tai (beef noodle soup), phở chay (vegetarian with seasonal mushrooms and tofu), and grilled pork spring rolls. The house will also be serving Canh Chua Cá, a Vietnamese fish soup with a sweet-and-sour tamarind and pineapple edge. The soup is served with sliced taro stem, okra, tomato, and mung bean sprouts.

Chrissy's Waffles

When: Sunday, Nov. 24, noon-3 p.m.

Where: Biondivino

Cost: $8

The Rundown: This Sunday is Wafflesgiving, where pancake's cooler older brother will be exalted in baths of syrup. Chrissy's Waffles is hosting the event with offerings like an herb waffle with Nueskes cherrywood bacon. Don't do the meat thing? Try the malted buttermilk waffle topped with poached pumpkin. Enjoy either (or both) with a grapefruit-and-bitters Prosecco cordial.

Hapa Ramen

When: Tuesday, Nov. 26

Where: Wing Wings

The Rundown: The people behind Hapa will be serving duck ramen and pork steamed buns to warm the oncoming rainy weather. Rumor is that they'll be serving foie gras, which was banned for sale last year. But it can be still offered as a gift. 'Tis the season of giving, after all...

  • 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.'"
