SFBC Bike-In Movie Night and Ed Man Chew's B-Day.

Category : , , , , , ,

Triplets of Belleville and hella street food carts.  I think that almost, if not every, street food cart was in attendance tonight.  From OG's to the new kids.

You can really see the growth of the street food cart scene between the last two Bike-In Movie events.  Street cart attendance had to have tripled in the span of the month between movies.  It's awesome to see the burgeoning street food cart scene as well as be part of it.  It was a great event and it was great to see everybody (venders and eaters) tonight.

Tonight, we finally debuted the long awaited and hugely anticipated "Vegan" adobo.  It came across as a huge success and we received really good feedback about it.  Tonight's vegan adobo featured long beans, bok choy, okra, and potatoes along with the secret Adobo Hobo adobo sauce.  Hopefully it can remain as another option for us.

If you want to see more Bike-In Movie events, please support and join the SFBC today!

Setting up at the last SFBC Bike-In Movie Night while enjoying some Brazilian Bites.

The SFBC is having another Bike-In Movie Night on Wed.  The last Bike-In Movie Night featured the movie "Klunkerz" and also had a Q&A session with Gary Fisher, mountain biking legend.

They will be showing The Triplets of Belleville on Wed. and it should be another awesome event featuring a lot of the other street food carts.  A lot of the OG's like Creme Brulee Cart and Magic Curry Kart will be out as well as a newcomer, Adobo RollO, who will be serving up a pork adobo with a coconut based sauce. 

Ride out and enjoy the movie along with some good eats.

See you there!

Fabric8 Gallery Grand Opening
Receiver Gallery - Skinwalker by Brian Willmont Opening

Fabric8 last week and Receiver Gallery last night.  What's better than food and art combined? 

Last week's event, Street Art x Street Food at Fabric8 was awesome.  Street food vendors Creme Brulee Cart, Soul Cocina, Gobba Gobba Hey, and us helped celebrate the Grand Opening of the Fabric8 Gallery.  Lots of good food and lots of great art.

Last night, we were at the Receiver Gallery for the opening of Brian Willmont's Skinwalker.  The street cart line-up consisted of Wholesome Bakery, Gumbo Cart, Brazilian Bites, and Adobo Hobo.  Anthony of Anthony's Cookies even stopped by and got about 10 servings of adobo.  BTW, the cookies were off the hook.

Art and food compliment each other perfectly, so you better come out the next event!

Check out our homey Soul Cocina. He's a culinary nut! or Soul Cocina on Twitter - 8 Questions for The Adobo Hobo

Category : , asks 8 questions to Adobo Hobo.

1. “The Adobo Hobo?” How did that come about?
2. How did the whole idea of twittering the location beforehand come into play?
3. Where are you from?
4. Do you have much experience with the street food scene? Or at least, eating street food?
5. To be honest, not a lot of non-Asian people know about adobo is, or do they? Do people look at you all crazy and go “wait, isn’t that some Spanish thing?”
6. Since the Dolores Park or the Mission — where you’ve been serving food — isn’t exactly Daly City, what are some of the questions you get about the food? And have you changed your family recipe any to cater to the crazy hipsters?
7. From the business perspective: How much of this pure money business versus a hobby, versus a way to just get some Asian food up in this?
8. True or false: There’s never such thing as too much garlic.

Silly us. Just when we suggested that street vendors might be beginning to exhaust cooking genres comes Adobo Hobo, hawker of Filipino adobo. Turns out the Hobo's named Jason, a guy in real estate who learned the ins and outs of the dish from his mom (duh). He's making his maiden cart voyage in the Mission this weekend -- follow along on Twitter to find out where and when...
