Restaurant Details

Anyone unfamiliar with Cantonese food will find it hard to feel lost ordering at Yuet Lee. In fact, it'd be hard to lose sight of this Chinatown restaurant. You could probably spot that electric-green exterior through the fog from the top of Coit Tower. Newcomers can't - and shouldn't - ignore the list of the Chinese restaurant's "10 famous dishes" taped up next to the kitchen window. Seafood, like steamed whole fish make the list, clams with black bean sauce, and the ultrafamous salt-and-pepper squid, still crackly and tender after three decades in business, as well as check out the spare ribs. The rice plates and chow fun are decent, but the fresh seafood is among San Francisco's best after-midnight (hell, after 10 p.m.!) dining options.

  • 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.'"
