San Francisco Food Carts Visit Palo Alto

San Francisco has all these cool food carts with super tasty and interesting foods, and many of these vendors connect with their customers via Twitter and Facebook.  How more Bay Area can you get – gourmet food from a cart that you learned about on Twitter?  You gotta love it.

Magic Curry Kart and Crème Brûlée Cart ventured down the peninsula this week and visited us poor cart-starved people here in the Palo Alto area. I met up with one of my real life blogging friends Gudrun Enger (aka Kitchen Gadget Girl) in front of Moxsie (who got the carts down here in the first place) for curry and crème brûlée yesterday for lunch.  It was really fun…we felt like we had escaped suburbia for city life, if but for a few small moments.

So, how was the food?  It was really good! First let’s talk curry.  I really liked the flavor of the sauce, the vegetables were yummy, and it was just the right amount of spicy. I ordered veggie because the line for chicken was too long…oh, and that whole new year’s resolution thing I’m doing. I don’t like tofu, but this was pretty good tofu, made even better by the sauce.

Now let’s talk crème brûlée. I shared mine with the girls and was wishing the whole time I had splurged and gotten one for each of us. Our chocolate crème brûlée was oh so tasty. And, too my surprise, there was peanut buter buried inside! It ended up being a very pleasant surprise, by the way. Well done, Crème Brûlée Guy, well done!

If you live in San Francisco and for some reason aren’t following these guys on Twitter (Magic Curry Kart and Crème Brûlée Cart), start following please. You need to get out there and enjoy their food for me.


  1. I LOVE San Francisco! One of my favorite weekend vacations is to stay downtown, and then spend all day Saturday at the Farmer’s Market and the Ferry Building.

    Alas, I’m in WI – but we do have some nice food carts here! One of my secret fantasies is to have a sophisticated ice pop cart – one that uses only local/seasonal ingredients, like rhubarb and concord grapes.

    What? A creme brulee cart…thanks for telling us the day after 🙂 I knew about the ones in LA (korean taco truck), glad to hear they’ve moved up here, but need them down south more often 🙂

  6. I am officially jealous! Brilliant.

    Korean BBQ?! Awesome, guess I should pay closer attention to Twitter. Do you know the times yet? Based on last week, I am going to plan to get there early. There were quite a few folks who did not get any creme brulee 🙁

    I’ve just started following then all on twitter…don’t use it as much now that I actually have to work all day 🙂 but will have to pay attention. Thanks. Of course it’s spring break so we are taking a rare vacation on friday up to Susanville.
