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!
