San Francisco Food Trucks
Chairman Bao - We know a thing or two about pork buns. If you cut us open, we might bleed pork buns. The Chairman’s are some of our favorites. The steamed bun is split down the middle, add the braised pork and the cabbage, and it all adds up to a perfect first course for your lunch. Beware: the line is long for this food truck, but the bun is worth the wait.
Seoul on Wheels - If you’re a fan of the San Francisco-style burrito but are looking for a different take on it, the Korean burrito (or if you prefer, Korrito) is going to make you very happy. The Korrito is all about the Korean-style marinated meat combined with the kimchee. Strangely, added to your usual burrito ingredients, these things work really, really well. The line is usually long here too, but it moves fast.
Keep on Trucking (and EATING!)
Liba Falafel - Liba’s is not your usual falafel. This food truck is a full on falafel bar which offers up condiments such as braised eggplant in tomato sauce, red cabbage with black sesame seeds, brussel sprouts with red apple and mustard vinaigrette, rosemary peanuts…the list goes on! All the food from Liba’s is made from scratch everyday and it is served with Liba, which means love. As their tagline says “let your falafel affair begin!”
Cupkates - Time to move on to desserts, and at Cupkates you should definitely get the S’mores cupcake and the Salted Caramel cupcake. A few quality local ingredients come together in a baking alchemy to create cupcake gold.
Creme Brulee Cart - We first tried creme brulee from this cart when it was pulled into an alley on a windy day. There was a momentary challenge with the wind and the torch which burns the creme, but we just loved that part of the experience. It’s so hands-on! Today there’s both the cart and a food truck so take your pick.
