The city's bursting at the seams with street food, our city blocks featuring everything from trucks selling kimchi tacos to carts wielding bacon crème brulee. What about the other foodie trends working their way up the haute cuisine ladder? INFORUM’s group of epicurean innovators will give you a taste of what’s going on in the culinary underworld. Learn which neighborhood blocks grow the most umami mushrooms as we give you the dirt on foraging. Or maybe you’ll get inspired to go public with your chipotle peanut brittle after hearing about the Underground Farmers Market, a new haven for outlaw urban eaters. Join us for a look at what’s fresh on the alternative food scene, both the trends and the motivations behind them.

The Street Food Tasting After-Party will include tastings from Magic Curry Cart, Sweet Constructions, Radio Africa & Kitchen, Onigilly, CatHead’s BBQ, Canvas Underground and Toasty Melts.
