Food Trucks, Street Fairs, and Sunday Streets

This past weekend was a San Francisco trifecta for street festivals.

We started the weekend off with a bang at Off the Grid at Fort Mason, a food truck extravaganza.  As the food truck craze has persisted for a few years now, San Francisco's offerings are plentiful and diverse.

In addition to local food, one of our local breweries, Magnolia, was serving their beer.

After taking a preliminary lap around the trucks, we zeroed in on a pork belly bun, grilled chicken banh mi, tamale, and an Asian pork cutlet sandwich with wasabi.

I saved room (well actually, K & D, my whole dessert stomach) for the creme brulee truck we had passed on the way in.  
We chose the El Jefe--It's like Bruce Willis with Hair 
Mexican Hot Chocolate Creme Brulee?  Yes, please.

We plan to return to Off the Grid again soon!

Our Saturday excursion took us through Japantown, where we hit up the Nihonmachi Street Fair
with game booths, live music, dance performances, and more food trucks.

This ukulele player was rocking out to the Mr. Brightside by the Killers and Build Me Up Buttercup.  He was entertaining!

They wrapped up the Nihonmachi Street Fair with a t-shirt rocket.  I never win those kinds of things, but somehow luck was on our side, and we walked away with a prize.
(Now I just need to find a place to wear my 2XL t-shirt....)

Sunday Streets was next; more photos to come!


  1. Bourbon in the last post, then pork belly and creme brulee here. I think we should go in search of more blog fodder - it's delicious!

  2. And to think you still have a working dessert stomach. Who knew! I'm heading to vacay, and may need to break one of those out for myself.
