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!

    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

        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!

          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?
