Great review, Michael. Yes, I had read about Mission Street Food primarily on local blogs, like SFist and EaterSF. I *may* have also seen the Chronicle article, but it was certainly a phenomenon that I learned about online. Funny that in my head the low-fi nature of the event meant that I was pronouncing it Mission “Street Food” and only 12 hours later did I realize oh, it was “Mission Street” Food, as simple a name as you can get.
They are also there on Thursdays, btw.
