The deviled ham Scotch egg from Il Cane Rosso was our favorite bite of the day.

Saturday marked the fourth annual San Francisco Street Food Festival, and it was as busy and caloric as ever. Lines snaked in many directions from booths all along Folsom Street, and the festival spread out across eight city blocks and then some, with beer-and-booze gardens on either end. (A frequently overheard phrase: “Whatever has the shortest line. I’m hungry.”) On Saturday afternoon we were particularly psyched to eat some greasy food, given the after-effects of a Friday night involving too much rosé and bourbon, and several fried items in particular helped alleviate the nasty bodily state we found ourselves in. Behold our slideshow of the sunny scene, and some food highlights from the fest.
