SFoodie brings us news of an upcoming street food destination: ~SOMA STREAT FOOD PARK~. Carlos Muela, who is behind the project, has just begun construction on the project at 346 11th Street at Division.

Inspired by Portland’s non-mobile street food scene, Muela hopes that providing a permanent street food park will make life easier for food truck vendors, who often have a hard time finding a place to situate themselves for business. The plan is for different trucks to rotate in and out of the park’s nine slots throughout the week, serving lunch and dinner (city permits allow them to serve until midnight). SFoodie also notes that “shelter for up to 200 diners, lights, and permanent restrooms” are part of the plans. The opening is still a couple months out.
