Community Alliance with Family Farmers (Thurs 3/12)

This week, Mission Street Food will be closed on Saturday--but we will be back to two days the following week.

This Thursday, we're happy to team up with an old friend, Collins Anderson. Collins is currently the sous chef to Ed Carew at The Cottage Eatery in Tiburon. Previously, he enjoyed cooking at The Front Porch, Florio, Bar Tartine, and Incanto.

Collins's proceeds will go to Community Alliance with Family Farmers in honor of his grandfather, Gib Anderson, a man who farmed the land of Pine Bluff, Arkansas his whole life and who knows how much help an honest farmer needs. MSF will donate its share of profits to the San Francisco LGBT Center's Youth Meal program, which we heard about from a customer. Keep the suggestions coming!

Love the King Trumpet Mushroom with triple-fried potato, garlic confit and charred scallion sour cream on a homemade flatbread & that Salt & Pepper Ice Cream. I'm running around like a crazy person on Thursday, but hope, hope I can pop in for food early or *you know* get it take out. You guys are deliciously awesome!

I just heard about your restaurant on NPR in Los Angeles. This sounds great! My grandmother lives down the street, so first chance I get, I'm coming over!

Also, here in LA we have the Kogi Taco Truck! Thought you might get a kick out of googling them. The only you know where they are stationed is by following their Twitter!

Yes, we've been listening to stories about that truck with interest, (particularly since I'm from LA). Here's an article on them:
