'food festival' on Serious Eats
I arrived in San Francisco on Wednesday night after a whirlwind drive across the country, not really knowing much about the city I'm going to be living in for the next two months. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that the fifth annual San Francisco Street Food Festival was not just taking place the day after I arrived, but indeed right around the corner from my new digs. Saturday morning, I grabbed the dogs and as many hungry mouths as I could find, and hit the street, determined to taste my way through the entire event.
In the misty volcanoes of western El Salvador is a little town called Juayúa. Show up on a weekday and you'll see some interesting murals and a few picturesque buildings and you'll think it's a pleasant enough but rather sleepy place. Show up on a weekend, however, and you'll find the madre of all Central American food festivals. Papas fritas, pupusas, tortas, iguana (!) and more bites!
