Off The Grid
Dinner is served on the street tonight! San Francisco’s “Off The Grid” is a mobile market of gourmet food trucks that serve lunch and dinner weekly at various locations in the city. Tonight, the trucks converged on Upper Haight.
Yep, it’s cold in SF, but that doesn’t stop people from bundling up and getting in line for some taco truck action. These aren’t your typical roach coaches though. Gourmet, organic….hey, any trendy food buzz world you want to throw in the air, this mobile market has you covered.
The trucks line up in a circle surrounding the “dining area.” Basically a bunch of plastic chairs randomly strewn about on the street.
Where do you think I ate tonight? Best Sisig tacos I’ve ever had, ever! Every taco should have Sisig in it. Too mouth-watering to photograph. I think I finished two of them during the walk between the truck and my seat!
A little bit of live music adds to the ambience.
Of course, one of the most important reasons why I love dinner on the street is that I can have Suki with me. I’m not sure how she feels about it though. Can you tell she’s irritated that I won’t share my Sisig Tacos with her?
All images tonight courtesy of my D700 + Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G. Even though I’ve been loving my time with with the Olympus E-PL2, there’s a limit to its abilities. Trying to stop action and quickly auto focus under nothing but dim artificial lighting, with ISOs between 1600 and 3200, I was in D700 territory at tonight’s market. It’s worth noting, however, that the E-PL2 is so light and compact that I had it with in my bag as well.
