You might hear some cool tunes blasting from a food truck every once in a while -- we recall boogieing to Michael Jackson at the Filipino breakfast mobile called the Wow Truck recently -- but now a local food truck has inspired its very own mixtape.

Yesterday, DJ King Shameek released a 77-minute mix dedicated to Borinquen Soul, a Puerto Rican truck based in Oakland. It's got the fast pace of a hip-hop mix (and features Puerto Rican rappers like Big Pun) but also incorporates modern and traditional Puerto Rican tunes.

  • 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.
