A little over a year into SoMa StrEat Food Park's life as the RV park equivalent for food trucks, the little permanent seven-days-a-week rally has steadily refined the offerings. While we love the pop up ambience and bare bones simplicity of the kinds of gatherings that happen in random parking lots, StrEat Food Park's amenities make it feel a little different, somehow more restaurant or a food court. Not that this makes the street food any less legitimate or delicious.
