  • Chocolate, caramel, almonds, bacon: Natural bedfellows.

Ain't San Francisco grand? Soon, it should be easier to sell food on the street, and in the meantime you can get two varieties of nicely wrapped chocolate candy with bacon in it right on the pavement thanks to Nosh This, Kai Kronfeld's street vending project that offers both savories and sweets at various locations.

While chocolate, caramel, almonds, and bacon are natural bedfellows in the brittle (which is particularly good when it gets a little melty), we didn't dig the pig's inclusion in the rocky road anywhere near as much. We know there's a relation between marshmallow made the old-fashioned way and animals with hooves, but it's not something we'd revisit.

  • 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.
