Each year we eagerly look forward to the San Francisco Street Food Festival, a boisterous celebration of street food fare. Put on by La Cocina, a community incubator kitchen that prides itself on working predominantly with female immigrants, the festival serves up a variety of enticing ethnic foods that are hard to find elsewhere. Recently, we attended a preview of some of the delectable bites that will be on offer. Keep clicking to see some of our favorites of the night, many of which will be available at the festival on Aug. 17.
This past weekend saw the third annual San Francisco Street Food Festival, a gathering of San Francisco's most sought-after street merchants, food trucks, and restaurants, organized by nonprofit incubator kitchen La Cocina. The occasion — "a celebration of vendors and entrepreneurship," according to the organization — helped increase awareness (and funds) for up-and-coming food businesses. It was also just plain delicious. See what you missed when you click through.
