This arrives at the beginning of the meal for a little bit of a healthy kick. Can you name this dish (in its native language) and the San Francisco-based restaurant where SFoodie snapped this picture? Give it a go in the comments below. Give it up for SFoodie reader trufflefrites, who figured out that the kimchee fried rice pictured in last week's Mystery Spot is served at Namu. Your chance to be a champion starts now.

Here's something that's offered specifically as a brunch item, but we think would be suitable to eat at any time of day. Can you name this dish and the San Francisco-based restaurant where this frame was frozen? Give your guess a whirl in the comments below. Congratulations to Diana Parker, who figured out that the meatball pictured in last week's Mystery Spot is served at Tony's Pizza Napoletana.

We invite you to have a ball today by trying to guess who serves up this rather hefty bowl. Name the San Francisco restaurant in the comments below if you haven't already fallen asleep at your desk at the mere sight of this image.

Cheers to Antonia, who we were unable to stump with the last Mystery Spot, green chile apple pie at Chile Pies and Ice Cream.

This is one of the most unusual pies in all of San Francisco and it's well worth tracking down. Can you identify what kind it is and the establishment that serves it? Hint: a second location just opened up, but this is from the original. Congratulations to the mysterious lhc for cracking last week's Mystery Spot for the second week in a row by correctly pinpointing the image as the stuffed mirilton from Criolla Kitchen.

We know it's good to eat green things in general, but we usually like to be able to identify it first. Do you know what this mysterious green thing is and the San Francisco restaurant where SFoodie froze this frame? Name the dish and the eatery that serves it in the comments below, and we'll tell you how you fared. Congratulations to Jason Wiley and LHC for figuring out that the "Monkey Time" pictured in last week's Mystery Spot is served at Park Chow.

Where Can You Get Monkey Time?

Happy Monday, are you ready for some Monkey Time? First, you'll have to figure out the San Francisco restaurant where you can order a concoction of pineapple, orange, and primates freely -- or at least for your little one. Take a guess in the comments section, and we'll let you know if you're hot, cold, or right on the nose. Congratulations to Nanette, who pinpointed the burger in last week's Mystery Spot as the one served at Super Duper's Market Street location.

Here's a recipe for an afternoon nap under your desk, a juicy and cheesy food coma for your consideration. But where does it live? Can you identify the San Francisco-based eatery where SFoodie freezed this frame? Try your luck in the comments below and we'll let you know how you fare. Last week's Mystery Spot still needs to be correctly identified; hop over there and give that a go as well.

Who Serves This Up?

It's exciting to live in a city where there are so many people enamored of food that we can run this weekly guessing game and rarely stump our savvy readers. So we're kicking it up a notch this week with an item that appears in many places in San Francisco: Can you name what is in this bowl and the restaurant where SFoodie took this picture? Try your luck in the comments below, and we'll let you know how you did. Congratulations to eagle-eyed and sweet-toothed SFoodie reader Lindsay, who correctly pinpointed the smiley-faced ice cream pictured in last week's Mystery Spot as belonging to Belly Good Cafe.

  • 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.'"
