We haven’t talked about the ~SAN FRANCISCO STREET FOOD FESTIVAL~ from La Cocina since April, so it seemed like a good time for a reminder. The seventh annual festival, which is always one of the biggest, most delicious blowouts in the city, is now happening on Pier 70 in the Dogpatch on Friday and Saturday August 15th and 16th. It runs both days from 11am to 6pm and features tons of the best food available in San Francisco and beyond.

This year, there will be more than 70 food vendors, including locals like 4505 Meats, Kin Khao, Los Cilantros, El Huarache Loco, El Buen Comer, Lanxang Kingdom, and The Whole Beast, to name just a very few. For the full list of vendors and their menus, head here and get ready for hunger pangs. There will also be plenty to drink and live music to keep you grooving all weekend long.

This year, La Cocina is also launching two new programs for the festival, Islands and Chef’s Counters. The islands will be separate areas entirely devoted to one of three food themes—tacos, dumplings, and seafood—where you can explore various interpretations of those foods. The chef’s counters will offer an intimate, sit-down counter environment for only 12 people at a time, where you’ll be served be the chef directly and have the opportunity to learn about their dishes.

In addition to the festival, meat lovers will also want to check out the spit-roasted pig supper on Saturday August 15th at 6pm, and be sure to get your tickets and passports now to save a bundle and show up prepared.
