9 Things You (and we) Missed at SF Matcha Fest

We’re having serious FOMO. That’s “fear of missing out,” for those who don’t follow online lingo.

Spark Social SF and SoMa StrEAT Food Park, the hip San Francisco food truck gathering place, celebrated all things green Sept. 10 with its SF Matcha Fest produced in partnership with @matcha.sf.

About 3,000 people hit the festival that featured 24 vendors. The organizers say the positive feedback already has them working on a second event.

Here’s what we—and you—missed among the many matcha features.

Matcha Mojitos

Saturday night plans, perhaps?

Matcha Tiramisu

Who needs coffee when you have matcha to layer with sponge?

Matcha Toffee

McFaddy Candy Co. made the trip to San Fran to share its buttery matcha candy.

Custard Cake

Um, can we have a bite? They often call custard cake “magic.” We can only imagine when matched with matcha.

Chocolate Matcha Sauce

Oh, and does that say doughnuts and mochi.

Tropical Cool

An interesting combination of Dole Whip and matcha. Hmm, such creation possibilities are swirling (or should we say, floating?) in our minds.
