Thankfully the street food festival is becoming an annual tradition in August, run by the La Cocina culinary and business incubator. This celebration of good food from passionate food entrepreneurs, many from other countries and lower income women, weaves DJs and live bands between an orgy of savories, desserts, drinks, and a whole lot more. We spent hours tasting and sharing numerous delicious dishes with Francis Lam of Gilt Taste, Susannah Chen of Yum Sugar, Amy Sherman of Cooking with Amy, Rob Bengstrom of Red Boat Fish Sauce and Into the Flames. Our collective favorite bites of the day were: Azalina’s Malasian Penang Curry Bomb Bun—great curry flavor, heat and the buns were fried to crispy perfection. The Arepa Lady from New York –especially the corn arepa; Ryan Farr’s 4505 Meats cheeseburger; Kika’s Brazilian Cheesebread and S’More; and Sabores Del Sur grilled beefheart.
