Gobbles at your doorstep.
​While the thrill of tracking down the latest in street food (and meeting fellow hunters in the process) is something everyone should experience, if you simply don't have the time or energy to track these people down and follow them on a whim, quite a few of these new-fangled S.F. vendors are available to deliver to offices and homes. Minimum orders vary, but veer more towards at least a dozen of a product (yet still tend to be priced well below a restaurant delivered item).

Embarrassed to try and stalk Bill, the bacon potato chip guy of Who's Your Daddy? in the park? You can indulge in the dangerously meaty delights in the privacy of your cubicle. Curtis of Creme Brulee Cart fame has been firing up private staff parties at the likes of Chronicle Books and Wired, and is ready to pour some sugar on your office. Gobba Gobba Hey makes office runs, and even held a photo contest on his Twitter page to gob the winner's office for free. (Apparently, gob is now officially a verb.) CookieWagSF will bring you some freshly baked goodies, and has also been contemplating selling frozen dough, too. So you can go overboard trying different flavors, but not all at once.

Often, these folks will periodically publish their email addresses on Twitter to announce that they do these sorts of deliveries and special events. If you find a vendor you like and follow them on Twitter and they don't mention that they do private orders, chances are it wouldn't hurt to ask them directly (through Twitter). Some may not have even realized the demand for it yet.
