A Guatemalan restaurant with high pink walls and tables covered in flowery plastic, Palacio Latino is a gem hiding in plain sight. Mostly open during the day, the restaurant serves ho-hum Mexican and Salvadoran food and vibrant Guatemalan classics like enchiladas mixtas (tostadas with pork, pickled beets, and cabbage) and chicken pepian (pumpkin-seed stew). Signs on the wall list a dozen varieties of tamales, snacks, and sandwiches for takeout, but the restaurant's sopa de gallina is a sit-down meal. The cooks braise a hen long enough to grow tender, then broil and serve the meat on the side, turning the broth into a rich soup and savory baked rice.

  • 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.'"
