Mission Street is a popular and one of the oldest streets in San Francisco. Part of its charm comes from its history of being close to the Spanish Mission Dolores and a section of El Camino Real. The street has several restaurants and the occasional food truck. There is also a restaurant called Mission Street Food which combines charity work with food-to-go.
The Mission Street North Food
Mission Street North is one of the areas to go for good food. One such food option is the burrito truck in Kingston which serves California-Mexican style tacos and burritos. Their best-selling food item is the Cabo Tacos which is what draws the people in and creates a food line.
Other Street Food Options
Every year for the past 5 years, Mission Street is the venue for San Francisco Street Food Market. This year it was held on August 17 and there were thousands of people who came to sample the food of more than 80 food vendors.
Some of the top sellers of the day were the deep fried macaroni and cheese, burgers, vegan food, and desserts like homemade marshmallows and s’mores.
The host of the event is La Cocina which is composed of women from the Mission District who want to give anyone a chance to launch their food business ideas. All vendors are small business owners or new food ventures from the highly diverse population of San Francisco.
For example, 4505 Meats is the vendor that sold fried mac and cheese. It is owned by a couple who started the business in 2009. Aside from the mac and cheese, they sell sausages and are currently trying to build up their catering service.
