Restaurant Details

Painted like the inside of a carnival tent in yellow and orange vertical stripes, Sai Jai Thai is the first of a trio of Tenderloin restaurants that have made Larkin Street a destination for Thai food. Some of the best dishes on its menu are the Northeastern ones -- a sweat-inducing papaya salad with pounded blue crab, a tart green-mango salad set on a cloud of crispy fried catfish (yum pla dook foo), and the grilled pork shoulder, so juicy it seems to have sucked in its marinade like a sponge, served either as a salad or over fried 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.'"
