How am I going to try all of these?! -  POP GOURMET

In part of the celebration of Japanese popular culture, J-Pop Summit will include a Pop Gourmet Food Festival for the second time.

The fest, split into five areas, will host a sake tasting ($10), food trucks, other snacks and beverages, and the most highlighted event, Ramen Street.

Food trucks will include Adam's Grub Truck, BACON BACON, The Chariman, The Creme Brulee Cart, Frozen Kuhsterd, Garden Creamery, Hiyaaa!, Hongry Kong, JapaCurry, Keep Rolling, Korean Bobcha, Phat Thai, Qui Chef, Ultra Crepes, and We Sushi.

Onigilly, Meiji, and Sapporo will also be contributing to the festival.

Seven varieties of ramen, including a ramen burger from Fujin Ramen in LA, from eight different restaurants will be featured at the Ramen Street. Each bowl will be $8. With a local shop, Men Oh, and several from LA and even Japan, this will be the first San Francisco visit from Ramen Street. Hosted by the Ramen Yokocho Association, Ramen Street has also popped up in LA and Las Vegas.

In addition to the food fest, there will be a Pocky eating contest where contestants will compete to see who can finish seven boxes of the popular Japanese snack. The first prize winner will receive 365 boxes of Pocky, but it's hard to imagine wanting a year's supply after scarfing that many Pocky sticks down your throat.

The free two-day summit will be on Saturday and Sunday, July 19-20 in Japantown on Post Street.

  • 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.'"
