    The Creme Brulee man has become an icon for street food in the City.

    The City's attempt to make street food legal couldn't come at a better time for the Indian food truck Curry Up Now.

    The popular street food vendor that has made waves on the Peninsula has had its move to San Francisco stalled by red tape.

    Tuesday San Francisco health officials discussed how to permit and regulate the growing street food movement at a SPUR meeting Tuesday night. Currently about 60 street food vendors operate under the radar in San Francisco.

    The Curry Up Now truck tried to go through the proper paperwork to operate legally in the City but its January launch was delayed when it failed to secure the necessary permits. Instead the Indian food truck will open shop Wednesday night in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Brisbane.
