Plus is souping the new juicing?

Andytown Roasters to Open Second Location in the Outer Sunset
Snowy plover fans, get ready for another Andytown on Taraval between 46th and 47th avenues. Hoodline reports that the shop should be open by late August, not far from Streamline Cafe and the soon-to-rise-from-the-ashes Riptide.

FOB Kitchen Takes Over Gashead Tavern's Kitchen Duties
Filipino food has been on a tear lately, with Pampalasa wowing people in SoMa, Daly City's Tselogs announcing a second location around Union Square, and now FOB Kitchen expanding from a two-night-a-week pop-up inside the Mission's Gashead Tavern to conquering the kitchen wholesale. Inside Scoop noted that it's not a permanent thing, but with a $17 rice plates with thinly sliced Estancia grass-fed top sirloin, soy, and lemon, sauteed onions, there's a good chance this might be a forever home.

Hoodline also reports that local chain Onigilly is about to open its fourth location, in the Financial District just like the other three. Expect some Japanese fast-casual the week of Feb. 15 at 545 Sansome Street.

Feasting on Mammoth?
David Ireland, whose house and studio at 500 Capp Street is now open, famously preserved a slice of birthday cake in a Mason jar as a work of art. To disprove the Explorers Club's claim that mammoth was served at a function in 1951, scientists turned to a preserved piece of the meat. People thought it was ground sloth from Alaska, but the New York Times shows that it was something else entirely.

Souping, the New Juicing
So says the New York Times in one of its potential uh-oh trend pieces. To get you on board the souping train, there are "colorfully named offerings include Kale-lifornia Dreamin’, Lentil Me Entertain You!, and And the Beet Goes On, a borschtlike crimson concoction." Who's in?

Subway Abandons $5 Foot-Longs, Starts New $6 Foot-Long Campaign

In the first major piece of news to come out of Subway that has nothing to do with yoga mats and kiddie porn, the chain is upping the price of its signature $5 foot-long sandwiches by a buck, according to Restaurant Business. In other news, inflation is still running at historic lows.

  • 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.'"
