Chinese food has long been my favorite cuisine. But when it comes to mobile vendors, it's scarcely been seen served up in San Francisco in any recognizable form. Even Off the Grid's mammoth Fort Mason Center event, with its charter mandate to serve only Asian and Latin fare (or at least food inspired by those cuisines) has been hard pressed to come up with a truck dedicated to traditional Chinese food, though it has staged trucks featuring traditional Thai, Vietnamese, Indian and even Filipino dishes. Things may be changing for the better; recently I've become aware of not one, but two food trucks that have come on line and feature Chinese food in traditional forms. I caught up with the first of them, the Hongry Kong truck today at the SoMa Streat Food Park.

I'm eager to sample the dim sum offerings of the Hongry Kong truck whenever and wherever I catch up with it again. I'll also have my eyes peeled for the other recently launched Chinese food truck, Bao & Bowl, and will report on it when I catch up with it. Let's hope these two trucks are the beginning of a wave of Chinese food trucks
