Restaurant Details

You won't find a lot of frills at this unassuming Pakistani and Indian joint in the Mission District, but that won't matter because the food is righteously good. At Al Hamra, start with the whisper-light pakora (vegetable fritters) and fresh-baked naan stuffed with onion, potato, or spicy ground lamb, then feast on good tandoori dishes or excellent, spiced-to-order curries that include achar ghosht (lamb with roasted peppers and pickles), fiery chicken makhani, or aloo palak (puréed spinach with potatoes). For dessert, try the kheer (rice-pistachio pudding). No alcohol.

  • 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.'"
