The Street Food Fest Edition
Eat on the streets of San Francisco and you will quickly discover this is city of dedicated eaters. On August 18 I visited the 4th annual San Francisco Street Food Festival. The SF Street Food fest is four blocks of local food carts, food trucks, pop-up eateries and even a few hip brick and mortar restaurants host a booth. With street food culture in San Francisco fast becoming a normal way to eat a meal vs. just a dalliance or a novelty experience, the street food fest highlights that cultural shift by not only increasing in size, but in the quality and diversity of it’s offerings. If you’ve ever wanted to try Irish – Eritrean food, or Dosa’s from a truck. We have them for you. The street food fest is great because each vendor offers a small bite for $3, and a larger item for $8 and then a specialty drink or dessert. It’s perfect for snacking and sharing.
Some of the foodie highlights was a hot pastrami on rye from Wise Sons deli in the Mission. I think our New York BTR handlers would approve; Woody Allen did on his visit while shooting a new film. So would the L.A. BTR contingent who also knows good Jewish deli food. Another awesome eat came from the Brassknuckle truck in the form of a goat curry taco with pickled carrots and spiced yogurt. I don’t even know where to begin on that one. It was epic!
We’ve also got some great music from the likes of
