​Last night's street food panel hosted by Commonwealth Club's Inforum was a lively musing on the diverse and still-growing local mobile food scene. Is it a trend? "While it's trendy," said Off the Grid promoter Matt Cohen, "it's hopefully becoming a part of people's lives."

After the discussion, there was an afterparty at 111 Minna, featuring great grazing from a variety of food vendors, including the bike-powered Magic Curry Kart, pop-up (soon to be permanent) restaurateur Radio Africa, and homespun cart Toasty Melts.

Most telling, though, was the comment board that Inforum set up to poll the crowd about their street-food favorites. The people have spoken, and it looks like it's a heat between tacos and buns.
