San Francisco’s biggest music festival is coming this weekend and while Paul Simon may be the musical headliner, the food is always a huge draw. This is one of the few times a year you can find some of the best dishes in SF all in one spot, so I’ve scoured the food vendor list to come up with the best picks for the folks in town just for the festival, (or for the SF folks who never leave their own neighborhood).
