Honey Badger Don't Care That It Inspired Some BBQ Sauce

Posted By on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 at 10:35 AM

HONEY BADGER BBQ SAUCE
  • Honey Badger BBQ Sauce

A video posted on YouTube called "The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger," a witty parody of a National Geographic wildlife documentary, has garnered more than 48 million views since January 2011 and officiated a meme and catchphrase: "Honey badger don't care!" More recently, it has inspired a new line of barbecue sauce from San Francisco.

Honey Badger BBQ Sauce comes in a container that looks like a honey bear but is actually a vicious creature holding a snake and snarling, which is pretty much what the honey badger does in the YouTube video. The sauce has a honey and habanero pepper base, and there's also a limited edition "triple cobra strength" version that is only fit for humans with a badass capacity for extreme hot sauce.

  • Imagine these in your trail mix or granola.

A pouch of toasted coconut chips from local (and, it must be said, unfortunately named) Dang Foods came in the mail the other day. Like all unsolicited food samples that arrive at SFoodie headquarters, we sampled them diligently ... then found ourselves eating the whole bag.

  • Hapa Ramen, vegetarian-style.

Chef Richie Nakano and crew have worked for nearly a year to open the first brick-and-mortar location of Hapa Ramen. While an opening date has yet to be set, after two years of throwing pop-up events and appearing at Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market and Off the Grid events, Nakano's kitchen equipment has taken a bit of a beating and hopes for a fresh start in the new space.

SoMa Streat Food Park Grand Opening Today

SoMa Streat Food Park, San Francisco's first Food-Truck Pod, Grand Opening

Where:
This triangular park at 428 11th Street boasts covered seating for over 100 people, heat lamps, free WiFi, a projection screen for movies, bike parking and a (soon to be opened) beer garden.

When: Today! The park will be open for business 7 days a week.
Monday - Friday, lunch from 11 AM-3 PM and dinner from 5 PM - 10 PM
Saturday and Sunday 11 AM - 10 PM

Cost: Varies by truck. The ten truck spots will rotate daily to provide a variety of options. Inspired by permanent food truck pods in Portland, this uniquely San Franciscan park takes advantage of the truck's mobility to make sure there is something new every time you visit.

The Rundown: After a soft opening less than a week ago, the Streat Food Park is already buzzing with neighbors, lunch-breakers and people tracking down their favorite food truck. After a year and a half of preparing the park, Carlos Muela is excited to see a community already building as someone trades a bite of an organic and alternative twist on a bahn mi from Little Green Cyclo for a nibble of one of La Pastrami's dagwoods. It's not all sandwiches, as the park had something for everyone when I visited the soft opening yesterday. While lines were longest at NorCal's only Thai Food Truck, Phat Thai, the Golden Waffle catered to a lunch time sweet tooth. The Streat Food Park will not only be a way to casually say hello to a coworker outside the office or hit a few food truck destinations in one blow, but also a new kind of space for San Francisco to get creative with and take advantage of.

Kickstarter is an organizational force to be reckoned with. By giving small businesses the power to harness the income of friends, family, and fans through a rewarded-donation system, the website has allowed an impressive share of previously under-the-radar micro-companies to baby step into the big leagues.

San Francisco's food world is taking full advantage of Kickstarter's financial possibilities, with three up-and-coming food projects thrusting themselves on to the site in the last few weeks.

  • 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.'"
