Saturday street heaven.

This Saturday, the Mission's area of 25th & Folsom, converted itself into a food beautiful chaotic orchestra with a moving sea of people, a myriad punching smells going through your nose and your stomach really not knowing what to do with it all. The San Francisco Street Food Festival had an amazing turnaround, the vendors kept saying, was way more than they had expected. Great cause, excellent collab. If you missed it or found yourself impatient, don't worry - there will be more happening with our neighbors across the east bay soon:
"The festival is a sister event to the Eat Real Festival, which will be taking place in Oakland's Jack London Square August 28 through the 30, 2009."
But, that said it was worth the wait, I think so. We were very-very hungry by the time we were closer to ordering, but very enjoyable. It was a bummer though, that they ran out of whatever beer was meant to be sold (tickets were $5 each) and ended up replacing it with cans of budlight... Anyways.
There was also the lush bike love aka bike valet parking provided by the SF Bike Coalition. Swoon!!

A bientot!

Two seconds ago, there was the cutest chihuahua in the cutest pannier.

'almost' there... Okay this crowd, multiply it by 12. Peoplesesesesses

Worth the wait.
huarache de nopalitos con crema. 2x.
This above is from El Huarache Loco. I love nopales, & it had been awhile I hadn't had any huaraches (think of a thick tortilla 2x with beans in the middle) in a while and it is a sweet reminder to get out to the Alemany farmers market more often, which is where you can find them every Saturday.
Good times!

    Someone please get that woman a set of handlebar grips, what she has now is a metal pipe weapon waiting to gouge someone.
