San Francisco Food Tour, Part 3: More Food Trucks!

I made another trip to San Francisco to try more food trucks with B! It was raining so, we didn't want to venture far into the city. So we took public transit to the city, and then walked a few blocks to seek out the Bacon Bacon truck and the 3-Sum Eats truck. They happened to be at the same spot, but unhappily, there wasn't a covered area to eat our food. We decided to go back the the Caltrain station, and ate our food there. I totally binged, I couldn't quite believe how much food I managed to eat. Here's the 3-Sum Eats menu for the day. I know they have varying items on different days, but here's what they had the day we went. 

Here's the sandwich B ordered, which I only got one bite of: the Cornflake Crusted Fried Chicken Sandwich. There were 2 chicken breasts, which I was surprised by. It had a great flavor and the slaw was a nice crunchy addition to the fried chicken. It also had a delicious mayo on it that had great flavor as well. 


This is the sandwich I ordered: Rosemary, Black Pepper, and Brown Sugar Crusted Bacon BLT. The tomato jam was delicious, and there was so much thick cut bacon on this! It was pretty messy, but I worked through the mess and ate the whole thing.


Now to what we ordered from the Bacon Bacon truck. Below, the Spicy Belly Fries, which were pretty good. The spicy peppers were a nice spicy touch to all the pork trimmings covering the fries.


Here's the Triple B Taco. This had some crunchy bacon interspersed with the pork and more of the peppers. By the time we got to eating this, the tortilla was kind of soggy, but it was still tasty. 


We then headed to Palo Alto on the Caltrain, and went to Edgewood Eats, which is kind of like Off the Grid. Some of our past favorite food trucks were there, including Chairman Bao and Koja Kitchen. I didn't really try anything new, just wanted to get some of my favorites again, while I had the chance. Here's a shot of the trucks...


Another shot of trucks...


Here is my Steamed Pork Belly boa, which this tasted better than the first one I had. Don't know what that was, since it wasn't because I was starving. Perhaps, it was because the pork seemed hotter and fresher? I have no idea, but I'm planning at trying my hand at making this at home soon, so look for that.


Here's the Steamed Coca-Cola Braised Pork bao. The last time I had this, was on a baked bun, and it was just as delicious on the steamed bao. 


Then I headed over to Koja Kitchen and ordered what I got last time, the Kamikaze Combo. I didn't bother with photos, since I already got good photos the first time there. But, I didn't get a good photo of the Mochimisu dessert, so I got a great shot this time. Here it is, in all it's glory...


That was the end of the eating, we were so full by the end of the day. To be honest, I wasn't blown away by the Bacon Bacon truck. It was good, but I thought 3-Sum Eats was much better. I mean, they have that whole "everything on our menu has bacon in it" thing going for them, but I didn't find the food very original or life changing. 3-Sum Eats is much more original, with their menu changing almost everyday. I was disappointed I didn't get a chance to try the chips with Dirty Ranch from 3-Sum Eats, because I love ranch. I also ordered their lemonade of the day, which was a nice refreshing blend of white nectarine, pear and mint. I highly suggest trying 3-Sum Eats, and if you really love bacon, maybe try Bacon Bacon. I don't think it would be worth making a special trip though.
