Just Another Food Truck Spot . . .

Last September I shared with you Loyal Readers my first experience at Off The Grid; a food truck culinary extravaganza held Friday evenings at Fort Mason.

In what I would equate to the millennium's answer to the mall food court; there is a new contender in town.

Located at corner of 11th and Bryant Street across from the Costco parking garage is the semi-permanent SOMA STREATFOOD PARK.

What was missing at the Fort Mason's traveling food fest is more than compensated for at this location.  SOMA StreatFood Park has a covered seating area with a giant projection screen for watching sporting events!

While the truck options on the day that I visited were limited at best, I have driven past this place when some of the more well known and followed trucks were serving their creations.

On my visit I ate at the Slider Shack.

I got the Choice Of 2 Sliders for $7.00 and a side of Cader Tots for $3.00.

My first slider was the Kalua Pork Slider which is "slow cooked a minimum of 12 hours with Hawaiian Alaea salt for a distinctively smoky Hawaiian imu flavor, dressed with Slider Shack's spicy Polynesian green sauce, and topped with more BBQ sauce if you like."

Mine was not topped with more BBQ sauce and I found this slider to be a bit on the dry side.

My second slider was the Original Slider which was made with "Marin Sun Farms 100% grass fed beef, infused with Slider Shack's unique marinade for 24 hours.  Pepper jack cheese and pickles complete this masterpiece."

My palate was quite pleased with the Original Slider as it had a nice kick.

To finish off my meal I tried SF Delights Thai Coffee Tiramisu.  While I would give the presentation an A+ the taste satisfaction was just OK.

 I look forward to visiting SOMA StreatFood Park again in the future and trying other truck food creations.
