The Off the Grid street food empire continues to expand its markets in the East Bay and debuted another location in Berkeley last night. Located at the corner of Haste and Telegraph, this new Thursday night venue drew big crowds from nearby UC Berkeley, judging by the large groups of students that were waiting for The Chairman buns and Senor Sisig burritos. Hapa SF, Old World Food Truck, Southern Sandwich, Sunrise Deli, El Sur and the Creme Brulee Truck were also in attendance. Off the Grid also has a North Berkeley market on Wednesday evenings from 5-9pm with 10 trucks.
