What to Have for Lunch: Sisig and Soccer in South City
|Sisig tacos, $6. World Cup play, free.|
Research for last Monday's lunch pick took SFoodie to Tanguito, the Argentinian food truck on the Wharf, where we ate choripan and watched the World Cup. In the same vein, we'd recommend you get on the 101 and drive a few short miles to South San Francisco, where William Pilz's Hapa SF truck is parked outside the StandBy, a retro bar that pretends to be a dive.
Get there by 11;30 a.m. and you'll have your sisig tacos ― marinated, fried pork cheek and shoulder meat, shredded cabbage, creamy avocado sauce, and finely slivered radishes ― in time to catch the beginning of the England-Algeria game inside. Afterward, you can pick up sweets from the hundred-year-old Galli's Sanitary Bakery.
UPDATE: Ah, street food trucks. So mobile, so fickle. Apparently last night Hapa SF decided to go to his regular Brisbane spot instead of staying at the StandBy, as he'd told SFoodie he would when we stopped in. So here's his address. Screw soccer. You didn't care about England versus Algeria anyway.
