Restaurant Details

Ruchi's menu displays a canny mix of dishes: A few conventional northern Indian restaurant dishes for the neophytes. A much bigger selection of dosas, vadas, and southern rice dishes, as well as a couple of uncommon Andhra Pradesh specialties, such as the tamarind-soured Nellore fish curry. But the reason the room fills up at lunch is the restaurant's ever-changing lunch thalis, album-sized trays filled with silver cups. One cup always contains sambar, a mustard-spiked yellow dal; another, yogurt with loose curds; a third, some kind of vegetable stir-fried with curry leaves and toasted lentils. The pleasure of ordering the thali at this SOMA restaurant is never knowing what it contains until the tray arrives, and once it does, never knowing which of its delicious contents to focus on.

  • 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.'"
