Our little hill in Castro Valley
Attention foodies! I highly recommend you spend a Monday evening in Hayward - specifically the triangle that separates Mission and Foothill off of Jackson. Off the Grid is going to be occupying the space every Monday from 5:30 to 9:00 this Fall and apparently continuing into the Winter from 5:30 to 8:00. Here’s the link to their website, www.offthegridsf.com for further information and an opportunity to see who is frequenting the event, which seems to be about 8 trucks a week.
Last week Andria and I went and ate at Streatery, who was featuring such delights as Oxtail over grits and Beef Brisket sandwiches on Ciabatta. We also got the lemon curd donuts and must confess that we went back for a second serving.
The event featured some long time Bay Area food truck favorites such as Chariman Bao, Seoul on Wheels, and Curry Up Now. There were also Peruvian, Thai and staples such as burgers and (really good) dogs, plus live music, and seating if you are a little strategic. We’ve actually been to the event twice now including its debut a few weeks ago, and it’s settled down just enough to the point where it’s comfortably busy. It’s nice to see our neighboring city of Hayward doing something cool and supporting the foodie movement.
