Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

Eat, pay, and get out: Hot Food Porn gets all reflective about the kind of restaurant a chef who refused to compromise would open. No distracting bar scene and extra layers of service -- it's a matter of getting potentially douche-y staff the hell out so a chef can focus on cooking, then getting dishes to diners without making them cycle through extraneous hands. What would such a place look like? Hint: Check out HFP's pic homage to Dennis Leary's Canteen.

The eww report: Cooking with the Single Guy checked out Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' Big Idea Party last night, featuring street snacks from Mission Street Food. Pics, descriptions -- only Cooking turned up a bit squeamish about the animal fats in some dishes. What did he like? So-called Blasian Chicken (heavily charred bird over minty bread hunks), sort of. Thanks for the reporting, Cooking -- hope you stopped for pizza on the way home.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
