San Tung Doubles In Size, Queues Form for Dry Wings

Fans of San Tung's dry wings know that even at off-hours, the wait time at this Inner Sunset favorite can be tedious. Rather than open a second, stand-alone location, the owners took the path of least resistance, annexing the adjacent storefront once it opened up but leaving the wall intact. And so we have San Tung #2, instead of merely a double-wide San Tung.

Sweet-hot, crispy and more or less obligatory for any fan of the fowl, the wings are among the best in the city. Otherwise, the restaurant is pretty much a mirror image of its antecedent, although with fewer banquet tables, a lone unisex bathroom and a smaller menu. It's as if they know a huge proportion of the business will always be wings, and cut out the filler.

Meanwhile, the lunch scurry remains impressive. A team of servers sweeps the room, refilling tea and juggling plates and menus with aplomb. Beyond the wings, a satisfying dish of pork with garlic had an ungodly number of chilies in it, and we mean that as form of the highest praise.

San Tung #2, 1033 Irving St., (415) 242-0828

  • 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.'"
