After a tip-off on Chowhound, it looks like the awkwardly named ~INDO-BALI COOKING STREET~ has opened in the Financial District. More from the post: “Same owners as Bangkok Best, but cook is Indonesian. Curries, Rendang and stir-fries; plates including rice and roti in the $8-$10 range mostly.” We have a peek at the menu for you. There is also 20% off everything from 2pm-3pm during their weekday “happy hour.” 343 Kearny St. at Pine, 415-956-5501.

Looks like ~BURGER URGE~ in the Upper Haight is opening Friday November 18th. As previously mentioned, the 75-seat spot is fast-casual, with around 10 burgers to choose from made with Niman Ranch beef, plus a turkey burger, a vegetarian burger, and sandwiches, soups, salads, and beer and wine. Mon-Fri 11am-11pm, Sat-Sun 8am-11pm. 1599 Haight St. at Clayton, 415-522-0122.

Am sorry to report that ~THE CHUBBY NOODLE~, the pop-up in Amante and home of some of the juiciest fried chicken I’ve had in the city, is on a temporary hiatus while owner Pete Mrabe sorts out some staffing during the holiday season. Stand by for an update soon. 570 Green St. at Stockton.
