Restaurant Details

Shabu Pub's signature hot pot -- in which slices of thinly sliced meats are quickly cooked in hot broth -- isn't quite as Japanese as the restaurant claims. It's a blend of Japanese and Chinese hot pots, with spicy miso and Mongolian broths available and a choice of meats that ranges from traditional beef to heretical lamb and seafood. The restaurant is packed with big families, many of whom are opting for the all-you-can-eat option, which includes giant bowls of vegetables and loops of half-cooked udon noodles. And if the raw beef and lamb is sliced so thin that it tends to disintegrate, the rhythm of the DIY meal makes it a pleasant night out.

  • 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.'"
