Maybe you didn't grow up ruled by a Vietnamese mom. You can make up for some of the home cooking you missed at this SOMA coffee and doughnut shop with burgers banh mi, and daily lunch specials. The chicken curry has bulky pieces of firm, boneless meat, and roll-cut carrots chunky enough to appeal to a Clydesdale, only plastic-fork soft. The curry's warm-tasting with cinnamon and bay leaf and muted chile, bleeding into a modest heap of rice. If it's not busy, and you sit near the register, the ladies behind the counter will watch you ― mom-like ― while you eat. If you know what's good for you, you won't leave a scrap of rice.

Latte Express 648 Fourth St. (at Bluxome), 348-8898.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
