SF Street Food Festival

The 4th Annual SF Street Food Fest was yesterday in the Mission. It is a tasty fundraiser for La Cocina. Nicasio and I had a great time last year. This year I went on my own, sent to represent Nicasio and the several other friends who could not make it for various reasons.

My strategy is to try new places, that I don’t normally have access to. So while I know there were booths representing some delicious favorites that now have storefronts, or regular pop-ups (Wise Sons Deli, Hapa Ramen) I skipped them to explore new tastes from places that are just getting started.

I present images of the booths and the food the came out of it in the order it was consumed!

Hey kids, here’s what you missed!

Empanadas: 1 with black beans, corn, salsa, etc. and 1 with banana and chocolate.

Slow-roasted pork banh mi and root slaw.

So having had eaten more than a complete lunch at this point I am full. But I know it is my duty to press on!

Chicken mole on a croissant.

Strawberry basil lemonade and jambalaya!

I was very full at this point but I wanted a sweet and I thought some coffee help it all go down. Blue Bottle to the rescue! Here’s my exception to skipping the foods I can get anytime. Blue Bottle coffee is the best!

Saffron snickerdoodle and a hand-drip coffee.

Finally I got a treat to go. I forgot to take a picture of her cart, but this comes from Yvonne’s Southern Sweets. I had it for breakfast this morning.

Individual-sized sweet potato pie.

I ate way to much and felt like I could just use my giant belly to roll myself home, but I think I did my duty for everyone I was representing. Plus it was tasty.

See you next year SF Street Food Festival!

    Everything looks delicious! You did of good job of representing! Sounds like fun. We don’t have food carts in these parts.

  2. I am seriously jealous! I’m eating double next year.

    I am so jealous, we don’t have Bahn Mi, or Empanadas, or even Jambalaya anytime in Lake County. . .

  5. Hey Kirstin,
    You’ve got a lot of great content on here about the city and your different passions. I’m working for a new start-up called HeyLets and we’re trying to get people excited about doing what you do. We want our users to rediscover their city through mini-recommendations from people with similar interests and hopefully pay it forward. I was wondering, would you be interested in sharing some of your positive experiences in your community with us?
