But music isn’t the only reason people will be at the sold out festival – there’s art, wine, beer, and food too. Being the foodie city that SF is, the list of food vendors is overwhelming. To make your life easier, and to make sure you don’t miss out on the best eats, we’ve chosen 10 food spots  you must try at Outsidelands.

1. Three Twins, Ice Cream

If you get a sweet tooth, don’t think about getting anything other than ice cream from Three Twins. Their Cardamom and Lemon Cookie are “inconceivably delicious.”

2. Bun Mee Vietnamese Sandwich Eatery, Vietnamese Sandwiches 

The best Vietnamese sandwiches in SF. Grab a Pork and Chicken Banh Mi inbetween music sets to get re-fueled.

3. Pica Pica, Arepas and Yuca Fries

Tried an Arepa? They’re gluten-free and can be filled with everything from black beans to pulled pork.

Gourmet sausages grilled on an open flame – just like you were at a summer BBQ. Plenty of options which range from Chicken Cherry Sausage to Vegan Apple Sage Sausage.

Customized coffee made one cup at a time – the best coffee in San Francisco. Order an Iced Mint Mojito if it’s hot out – you can thank us later.

9. Tacolicious, Tacos
