SoMa StrEat Food Park, the new permanent street food space at 11th and Folsom, is gearing up for its big grand opening next Wednesday with a series of soft launch lunches. Today was the first preview of what's to come and six trucks were serving a steady stream of customers: Mr. Nice SF, Smokin' Warehouse BBQ, Sunrise Deli, Brass Knuckle, La Pastrami and Golden Waffle.
"The inspiration to form a permanent street food pod came from both the lack of opportunities and infinite barriers the current street food vendors in San Francisco are faced with and from the existing permanent pods other states have been comfortably enjoying throughout the last decade," said founder Carlos Muela via email.
"We love the SoMa neighborhood and there is a lot of opportunity here. It is easy to get to and centrally located. As of now, there are not that many food options in the neighborhood, but we hope that will begin to change with the addition of the park."
