San Francisco's premiere cream puffery Pacific Puffs entered the food truck fray this summer, almost two years to the month after launching its Union Street storefront in 2009. Thankfully, one of Cow Hollow's most compelling sweet offerings isn't limited to that neighborhood anymore.

"The thing that really appealed to us about going mobile is the ability to reach a broad, enthusiastic customer base in a dynamic way," says Rhys Carvolth, who started the company with his brother Trent. "The hard working and diverse mobile food culture is one that we've always admired and respected. We are so grateful to be part of this community now."

The Puff Truck offers the same puffs (classic, classic sugar, seasonal fruit whip, chocolatier, and chocolatier sugar), but one advantage to stalking finding it is to experience flavors that are limited to weekends only in the store. Recent specials include peanut butter, coconut, and lemon. And as for those other cream puffs you might be used to, let's just say we wouldn't bet on Beard Papa in a smackdown against this puff daddy. Follow Pacific Puffs on Twitter for the most current scheduling information, or look for the truck for lunch on Wednesdays and Fridays at Truck Stop near the Transbay Terminal and various Off The Grid events.
