  • The foie gras ice cream sandwich: Get there before the protesters do.
Mission ice cream innovator Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.) has its famous (and controversial) foie gras ice cream sandwiches today. For $5, you get some chilly and creamy duck liver goodness, nestled between two gingersnaps. In related meat-sweets news, Humphry launched lard caramels this week. Like its lard shortbread cookies, they're something of a collaboration with -- or maybe homage to -- Boccalone, the lard's source. Both Humphry and Boccalone Salumeria (One Ferry Building at the Embarcadero) are carrying them, $3.50 for a pack of four. Demand is said to be high. On Wednesday, Humphry's Jake Godby tweeted that "Kevin & Eli from Top Chef got the last pack." Elimination doesn't seem to be a challenge today, however. Apparently there's a steady stash for the takin'.

  • 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.
