The 8-month-old Hong Kong Lounge II in the Inner Richmond is a smaller, more reserved offshoot of the Outer Richmond's Hong Kong Lounge, known for serving some of the best dim sum in the city. Instead of ordering from carts, you mark your choices on a paper menu with more than 80 dishes organized by type (steamed, fried and baked, noodles and porridge, dessert), which makes for a calmer, more thoughtful experience than frantically pointing at whatever looks good rolling by. The food arrives hot and steaming from the kitchen, fresher than anything you find getting stale on a steamer cart. Siu mai are larger, meatier, and more luscious than most, with an almost equal pork-to-shrimp ratio, and Hong Kong Lounge's sticky-sweet coffee spare ribs don't disappoint here. It's hard to go wrong with the menu, but don't leave without trying the egg custard desserts like steamed egg yolk buns, whose pale, round exterior conceals a sweet, molten rush of egg custard inside.

  • 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.'"
