Business is booming for some San Francisco street food vendors.

As the undergound food revolution gains in popularity, and goes legit in some instances, ours friends at Mission Mission tell us one of the early food vendors on City streets is planning to expanind his operation.

Brian Kimball of the Magic Curry Kart is planning to start a new Vietnamese noodle venture to compliment his curry serving magic. Business has been good enough that just last month Kimball was able to upgrade his cart to a bike-powered model in order to cover more events.

Kimball is even considering quiting his day job to dedicate himself full time to street vending. And his success prompted his brother, the Creme Brulée Guy, to take up the family business.

That's pretty impressive for a man who says he got into the business to earn a few extra bucks.
