Here's the Menu For Saturday's SF Street Food Festival

This year marks the final SF Street Food Festival in the Mission, and possibly the last one ever—time to make it count. To help you plan your gastronomic adventures, we've got the full lineup of what everyone's serving. Every cuisine imaginable is represented at the festival: you'll find Thai, Mexican, Italian, Japanese, Indian, and more, plus vegan options and plenty of sweets.

If you want to extend the fun to Friday, there's also a Fried Chicken Family Meal this year, featuring global takes on yardbird from To Hyang, the forthcoming Citizen Fox, Hopscotch, Abura-Ya, Starbelly, Traci des Jardins, and some guests from out of town (including Seattle's Huxley Wallace Collective and Alabama-based Jim and Nick's). $75 buys endless fried chicken and sides, plus three drink tokens; bump it to $125, and you get access to an open bar. All the profits from both events benefit La Cocina, which helps immigrant women start their own food businesses; you'll see many of their alumni serving at the event, so stop by and say hi.

As always, each vendor will present one small bite, one large bite, and a drink (usually), with no single item over $8. Without further ado, here's Saturday's massive menu:

The festival runs Saturday from 11 a.m until 7 p.m., but if you know what's good for you, you'll arrive early for the best bites and shortest lines. Remember that credit cards are a no-go: if you don't want to deal with carrying a bunch of cash, get yourself a passport beforehand, with tiered options designed for solo or group dining.

The sheer number of booths can also get overwhelming, so check out the
downloadable festival guide and map and plot your route before heading in.
