Best food truck food at the Treasure Island Flea Market?

The Librarian Oct 27, 2013 09:48 AM

The FM is held the last weekend of every month, and we went yesterday. Usual great selection of eccentric stuff - definitely recommend. They also have a line-up of food trucks, and I was wondering what is recommended. It's a little overwhelming because there are so many choices. Thanks!

    Not listed on the FM's site, but I recently read an article about
    Cannoli Corleone in Modesto that has sold at Treasure Island. Wonder if anyone has tried the cannoli?

      highly recommended:
      -curry up now: chicken tikka masala burrito
      -Frozen Kustard-distinct unique flavors, ice cream like.
      -Adam's Grub Truck-unique sammie offerings, mostly fried.
      -the chairman: not a fav but most people like it.

      so so:
      -hapa sf: filipino fast food, fresh meat but salty
      -little green cyclo/an the go: not everything on the menu is fab. just some items. didn't try them all.
      -yumsilog: premade filipino food with egg toppings.
      -burr eatery: artisan made burritos (from scratch)
      small and pricey (4 when i had it)
      -sam's: just the chowder
      -old world food truck: eastern european.jewish soul food : schnitzel was pretty good.

      -lots of misses, overpriced..

        If you order the schnitzel at Old World, make sure you get it with the "smear" - which I believe is their version of chopped chicken livers - it makes the sandwich!

        Here's a link to the market's food truck page, if that helps people know which ones you're talking about.

          Thanks - that does help. Have you tried the food from any of these trucks - either at TI or elsewhere?

              Report from April:

              Old World Food truck keeps eluding me, but I loved a pop-up they did a few years back

              Rib Whip's defunct brick and mortar in the Marina served better ribs than what I recently had at their truck in the Haight
