Top New Food Trucks to Enter the Arena

On your mark, get set, eat. Off the Grid has launched their 2016 season, which means none of us need worry about who’s cooking dinner on Friday night (or any other day of the week, depending on your location). With over 200 vendors sizzling, sautéing, stuffing and serving, the network of Street Food vendors offers a diverse options to say the least. A few notable newbies have joined the Fort Mason lineup, where 30 vendors serve from 5-10 p.m. each Friday.


A16: Making the less-traditional transition from brick-and-mortar to food truck, A16 is finally offering their Monday meatballs and five signature Neapolitan pizzas any night of the week and without the inconvenience of needing to book a table.

PB&JG (Peanut Butter and Jelly Guy): The Grilled Cheez Guy dips into dessert with sweeter sandwich offerings including PB&KJ (peanut better and Kelly’s habanero jelly) and his latest signature sandwich, the Elvis. Made with peanut butter, banana, and bacon, it will have you well on your way to a coronary. (The racially-charged Black Elvis includes a thick layer of Nutella).

Bacon Mania: Add crispy crumbles or supple strips of bacon to anything you already shouldn’t be eating (chili cheese fries, mac ’n cheese, a double-fried grilled cheese sandwich or frankfurter) and that’s what you’ll get from the guys at Bacon Mania. Vegetarians need not even try.

Southern Comfort Kitchen: Cajun cooking in a truck, with an emphasis on New Orleans standards like seafood gumbo, a hearty chicken and sausage jambalaya, aioli-smothered crab fries, and a variety of po’ boys and sandwiches, this Southern Comfort is best served with beer.

Rasoi: Started by Indian-native Heena Patel as a La Cocina project three years ago, Rasoi focuses on using Western Indian flavors and Northern California ingredients to create offerings like Bollywood biryani with zesty chicken and garlic cheese naan drenched in masala sauce.

Frozen Kuhsterd: The West Coast-style of a northern frozen favorite, Frozen Kuhsterd adds a little pretense (and lot of whimsy) to this scoopable, blendable, creamy caloric dessert. Featured flavor combinations include Four Barrel Coffee and Vanilla Bean, under a puddle of Guittard chocolate and torched marshmallow fluff topping.
