 “lt takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.” – e.e. cummings

Change is in the air as summer swiftly makes way for fall…

This Saturday is the annual SF Street Food Fest, a melange of dozens of food trucks and stands serving global food on a few Mission blocks. It runs a little smoother each year, and though mobbed, many beloved carts and restaurants serve special street food. State Bird Provisions (just named Bon Appetit’s # 1 new restaurant in the US) is offering hand-pulled burrata with garlic bread and shots of their incredible “World Peace” peanut milk, while guest carts include one of my favorite Portland food carts, Euro Trash.
