Aaaaaand we’re back! On Saturday, August 16th, La Cocina will be hosting the 6th Annual Street Food Festival in San Francisco’s Mission District with over 80 local vendors to celebrate food entrepreneurs in the Bay. We’re still working on all the details for this year’s epic festival, but read more below on last year’s event and what makes this day so special.
In 2013, guests left no block untouched, no menu item undigested, and no elastic pants unstretched. We saw evil genius in the form of deep fried mac ’n’ cheese from 4505 Meats, adorable umbrella-adorned Doughnut Burger Supremes from Hella Vegan Eats, to downright heavenly homemade marshmallows and TCHO chocolate s’mores from Kika’s Treats.
More importantly, we saw renowned Bay Area chefs cooking next to La Cocina entrepreneurs—the women who drive and inspire the festival every year and serve food any street, neighborhood, and the whole Bay Area should be proud of. By serving food, they serve the community, and continue to make the Bay Area's foodscape one of the most vibrant and diverse communities out there.
