SF Cart Project has just published Instrucktional, a how-to guide for prospective truck owners

"It's available for anybody demo-ing an idea," Cohen says, "maybe chefs who are thinking about opening a restaurant, or who are interested in trying out some street-food ideas."
Thomas Thong, who's cooked at the Slanted Door and worked briefly as sous chef at Heaven's Dog, is teaming up with Alembic bartender Danny Louie to launch TomKat, an Asian food truck.
185 Berry has been hosting daily food-truck minipods (JapaCurry, Senor Sisig, Little Green Cyclo, Brass Knuckle, and more) since Specialty's departed.

Alison Rowe vowed to keep the JapaCurry truck from doing business on Second Street, promising to block his truck.
