Forkin' Frisco: A guide to San Francisco street food
Forkin’ the streets
Street food has never been more popular in San Francisco and beyond. Mobile chefs working out of everything from repurposed taco trucks to improvised carts have changed the culinary landscape. Street food gives cooks who might not have the capital to invest in a brick and mortar restaurant an opportunity to share their passion.
Crème Brulee Cart
Since 2009, this cart has been pushing some amazing interpretations of the classic dessert. Flavors include White Russian and s’mores. For information on the cart’s daily location, follow @cremebruleecart on Twitter.
Bacon wrapped hot dogs
Like a clandestine, nameless force, these carts are typically found in their native habitat of Mission Street between 18th and 24th streets. Occasionally they migrate to the Castro to sell their delicious, greasy treats.
Serving some amazing Yucatecan cuisine, Chaac Mool has become a semi-permanent fixture of Dolores Park. Grab a couple Yucatecan tamales and enjoy a sunset date in the park with that special someone.
The Rib Whip
The Rib Whip is exactly what it sounds like – hearty BBQ served up out of a truck. Juicy ribs aren’t all they offer; the menu includes seasonal items like grilled asparagus as well. Visit theribwhip.com for their daily location.
