Every Tuesday hungry people looking to grab a bite for dinner will want to head over to Daly City. Serramonte Center is set to bring Off the Grid, a network of street food markets on wheels, with a special kick-off May 21.
Off the Grid at Serramonte will take place every Tuesday, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., packing the parking lot with an assorted mix of cuisine. From tasty tacos to Asian fusion, foodies, families and friends are invited to enjoy delicious street treats from more than seven food trucks including noodle dishes, desserts, rice plates and more.
“We are thrilled that Serramonte Center is the first Daly City location for Off the Grid,” said Serramonte Center Marketing Director Marie Villarosa. “Food trucks have such a huge following, and they will be a great addition to the shopping center’s current restaurant mix including Barracuda, Elephant Bar, Buffalo Wild Wings, Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill and Pho Garden.”
Feature trucks at the Tuesday, May 21st launch will be: Senor Sisig, The Rib Whip, Me So Hungry, The Chairman, Curry Up Now, An the Go, and Candy Bar Truck.
Off the Grid began in June 2010 with the simple idea that grouping Street Food vendors together would create an experience that would allow neighbors to connect with friends, and families to reconnect with each other. Since then Off the Grid has worked hard to develop markets that are both located in urban cores of cities, and that utilize spaces that are not easily activated effectively throughout the day.
Currently, Off the Grid operates 20 weekly markets in the greater Bay Area, and works with nearly 150+ vendors weekly. At its core, Off the Grid believes in the power of a shared food experience to connect communities.
