Confessions of a San Fran Foodie

Off the Grid Logo-1


Off the Grid is one of my favorite places to spend time with family and friends because it’s food truck heaven! Off the Grid has several locations they visit for lunch and dinner in SF and have multiple food trucks at each location. If you’re looking for a relaxing night out filled with mouthwatering food, music, and art, Off the Grid Friday nights is the place to be! They are located at the San Francisco Fort Mason Center from 5:00-10:00pm. Food trucks are on the rise and it seems like a new one appears every week, so below are some of my favorite trucks and dishes I recommend.

Shanghai Lumpia-4

This is hands down my favorite food truck! They serve Modern Organic Filipino food that’ll have you dreaming about it for days!

The Shanghai Lumpia  is a great appetizer and comes with 7 pieces for $5. The sweet and sour sauce compliments the crunchy fried goodness of the lumpia. This is a great dish for families. Parents can order a side of rice with the lumpia to make it a complete meal for the kids and get another order for themselves as an appetizer (trust me, the kids aren’t going to share theirs.)

The Chicken Adobo is my favorite plate! I could seriously have it for dinner every day! It’s always cooked just right and the chicken perfectly slides off the bone. It’s served with steamed Jasmine rice topped with green onions. This can also be a kid friendly dish (just ask for no green onions and they’ll also take the meat off of the bone for you if let them know it’s for the little ones!)

This is a gourmet food truck serving Korean and Japanese food! It’s completely genius …I don’t know why I didn’t think to combine their deliciousness together before!

There are three types of Koja’s, but the Korean BBQ Chicken with Pineapple is my favorite! It’s served in a toasted hand-made rice bun with Japanese seasoned romaine lettuce, Korean BBQ chicken, and caramelized pineapple. It’s juicy, crunchy, sweet, and salty!

Kamikaze Fries-8

Kamikaze Fries If you’re looking for a full meal (or just feel like pigging out like me) I would add the Kamikaze Fries, which are crisscut fries topped with Korean BBQ Beef, Kimchi, drizzled with their signature sauce! (Are you drooling yet?)


3) Cupkate’s

You didn’t think I would forget about dessert, did you? After having multiple cuisines for dinner and sampling from your family and friend’s dishes it’s time for dessert! Don’t worry you don’t have to go very far because Off the Grid has a variety of desserts to choose from!  I’m a sucker for cupcakes, so Cupkates had the key to my heart and stomach! 

The S’mores cupcake on the menu is described as a, “gooey chocolate cake sandwiched between a graham cracker crust bottom and toasted marshmallow frosting.” The graham cracker crust compliments the soft gooeyness of the cake and the marshmallow frosting. BEWARE! It’s highly addicting!

Red Velvet-11

The Red Velvet cupcake is moist and has a tasty cream cheese frosting to top it off. If you love Red Velvet cupcakes this is a must try!
