Old World Food Truck Pop-Up at La Victoria [San Francisco]

pane | Feb 9, 2012 09:38 PM

Many thanks to Windy, who clued me into the Jewish pop-up at La Victoria, where I experienced the best knish of my knish-eating career. To-die-for flaky exterior, fluffy potato center without a hint of gumminess...I ate only one, but easily could have downed three.

Other than that, we split a chicken schnitzel and short rib borscht, and both were good. Particularly the schnitzel, with spice caraway honey and and apple-cabbage slaw. Borscht was good, but I prefer a more grounded root-y, beety flavor.

The dine-in situation, in the back of La Victoria Bakery, looked lovely. We took it to go, which caused more confusion that we expected. When we asked if they had serving utensils to go, the guy stared blankly at us and said "Not...really?" Luckily we walked past home on the way to Shotwell's, and picked up our own, but probably a good idea to plan to dine in.
