I volunteered with La Cocina and was lucky to have a preview of the Street Food Fest that’s coming up next weekend!
Sugar & Spun – cotton candy with unique flavor: spiced mango, cookie monster, strawberry nutella and more.. You get the idea!
Dare you to try insects! Actually, they are yummy, great snacks I say :O (Eji’s Ethiopian) Oh and they don’t just catch any bugs, these insects were raised for human consumption!
I imagined Indian food to be heavy on the sauce, spices and creamy in texture. Papdi Chaat taste nothing like that, it’s a good balance of crunchiness and flavor. (Rasoi)
These little dumplings are so good that they receive a local grant – Bini’s Kitchen. By the way, the dumplings are called momo, Himalyan cuisine, cute name!
Something different from 4505 meats
Their name says it all – Crumble & Whisk: delish cheesecake
Not to be confused with Banh Mi, these are Bicycle Bánh Mi. The difference: they provide bicycle delivery and catering to SF and Bay area. Mother and daughter team, cooking up family recipes and making simple, authentic Vietnamese food.
Frozen Kuhsterd – Genius idea of combining dynamo donuts with ice cream and sauce!
I was already full, so didn’t have the chance to try the rest of the food.
Thank you for the great preview!
