Kauffman's Five: This Week in Food Bloggery

Posted By on Fri, Apr 16, 2010 at 5:17 PM

Five morsels ― electronic or, um, flour and water ― that struck my fancy this week:

1. Bite of the Week: Not having to eat any more hot dogs for a while actually makes me a little giddy, but that's probably just the effects of nitrate withdrawal. In terms of real food tasted this week, the most memorable would have to be the bhature cholle at Vik's Chaat Corner. As usual, I also walked out of Vik's market with $20 worth of cooking projects, too.

2. New SFoodie contributor Jun Belen's interactive map of the new neighborhood farmers markets is a post to bookmark. Holy crap! is the map filling up.

3. SFoodie editor John Birdsall was mightily impressed by new pho shop My

Father's Kitchen. A Turtle Tower rival?

4. Social Kitchen & Brewery, a new brewpub in the Inner Sunset featuring Rich

Higgins' beers, opens Tuesday. Brian Yaeger tasted Higgins'

five house beers, and every one sounds easy on the palate.

5. Tablehopper's (old-school) interactive list of over-

and under-hyped restaurants in San Francisco has caught a lot of

people's attention. Not only does the photo evoke impassioned comments

wherever it shows up, it has given a restaurant critic a few names of

places to check out.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
