The weather was gorgeous, the lines weren't too long, and the people were friendly -- and hungry -- at the sixth annual SF Street Food Festival  last Saturday.
About those shorter lines, though -- that meant we had access to pretty much any food we wanted in less than 10 minutes! (Except for the ever-popular ramenburger from Nombe , the line for which stretched almost the length of a block.) Uh oh, we were faced with unlimited choices, too many for our stomachs to bear, try as we might. And we might!
Highlights for us included the octo okono from Stones Throw  (basically a fried octopus popsicle), excellent and tender turkey momos (Nepalese dumplings) from Bini's Kitchen , Thai iced tea gelato from Secret Scoop , thickly wrapped beef pho rolls from Rice Paper Scissors  (with awesome Vietnamese coffee), sharply spiced ahi tuna kitfo (a kind of tartare mixture) from Radio Africa Kitchen , and aquavit-cured salmon crostinis from Chef Pelle Nordic .
Things causing a general sensation: a huge portion of Berber-spiced lamb from The Whole Beast , Hella Vegan Eats ' potsticker burrito, schnitzel sliders from Little Red Riding Truck , and a smoked salmon rueben from Fine & Rare. 
This is supposedly the festival's last year  (at least in the Mission), partly due to neighbor complaints about parking (sigh), but I have a feeling we won't see the last of it. Although you did just see the last of that schnitzel slider you left unattended on your plate, yoink.
