Special Limited Spicy Menu at Off the Grid Saturday

Posted By on Fri, Jul 1, 2011 at 10:35 AM


Hot Food, Cold Nights

Where: McCoppin and Valencia

When: Saturday, July 2, 5-9 p.m.

Cost: $32.64 (advance); $35 day of event

The rundown: Off the Grid is trying something new this weekend at its McCoppin location. Each of the five food trucks will serve a special spicy dish only to people who buy a ticket for all five. "It's sort of like a spicy tasting menu," says Off the Grid founder Matthew Cohen.

The menu: lechon kawali on a bed of Asian-style noodles from Senor Sisig; chiles gueros rellenos con chimole de res tacos from Chaac Mool; Korean rice cake from Tomkat; the Papa-rizo from Toasty Melts; and spicy grilled pork patty banh mi from Little Green Cyclo.

That sounds like a lot of food, and potentially heartburn, to me, but Cohen says, "It's for people to come and try with their friends." He adds, "It's not supposed to be aggressively spicy." SFoodie recommends you bring a knife for cutting the sandwiches and perhaps some cooling aloe drink.

The vendors will have their regular menus for people who don't buy tickets, but those folks might be looking enviously at the red, sweaty faces of those who plan ahead. Only 100 tickets are available.

Buy tickets at Eventbrite.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
