Chaac Mool Proxy Pop-Up
Where: The Proxy Project, Octavia and Linden Streets
When: Sat., April 16, 11 a.m.-8 p.m., and Sun., April 17, noon-7 p.m.
The rundown: Chaac Mool owners Maria de la Luz and Luis Vazquez come form a long line of professional cooks and bakers in the Yucatan. They're currently in La Cocina's small-business incubator program, catering events and popping up Friday nights at Off the Grid Fort Mason Center. And Chaac Mool's leasing La Cocina's street-food trailer, slated to be a regular daily feature at Dolores Park, despite stirrings of NIMBY opposition. This weekend, Chaac Mool's doing a trailer soft opening, not at Dolores but at the emerging Hayes Valley Proxy Project, the first in a planned series of La Cocina pop-ups there.
Menu: tacos with handmade corn tortillas (cochinita pibil, vegetarian, chicken relleno negro); nachos with the same protein options; vegetarian brazo de reina tamales; vegtarian guiso (i.e., vegetable stew) in sope “bowl”; aguas frescas
