Three and a half years after the birth of a street food business on Linda Street in the Mission, Brian Kimball has lately concentrated his Magic Curry Kart activities on putting his two chili sauces and trilogy of curry pastes on Northern California shelves. But on November 17, he'll pull his hand-crafted spice bicycle cart out of the garage to cook burgers at Fabric8 from 2-6 p.m.
The occasion is for a launch party to support the Mission art gallery's Kickstarter initiative to fund their new whimsical cityscape parklet designed by Ursula X. Young.
When the Magic Curry Kart was a more regular fixture on these Mission blocks, Kimball typically sold his Thai curries over rice. But he's branched out into noodles, Magic breakfast sandwiches, and burgers, the latter with his green curry paste mixed in the beef patty. Burgers will be $7 and he might also bring something called Magic noodles for $6, weather permitting. The assumption is that burgers are a lot easier to eat in rainy weather than noodles might be, though the gallery will provide cover from any potential inclement weather.
