Saul Deli‘s Executive Chef Peter Levitt will be rustling up some street eats at Berkeley’s second Off The Grid street food event in the Gourmet Ghetto.

Levitt will be using Off The Grid’s own truck which was created expressly to allow chefs and members of the general public to test out the experience of operating a food truck.

Saul’s street-food menu sticks to its Jewish, sustainable roots and will consist of Raspberry Lemonade; Saul’s Pickle Plate; Chicken Matzo Ball Soup; Fired Corn on the Cob with Spiced Gribenes; Potato Latke, Apricot Sauce, Crème Fraiche; Savory Potato Kugel with Crème Fraiche; Corned Beef On Challah Roll, Mustard; Sweet Peach and Brandied Prune Kugel with Whipped cream; and a Choco Halvatashen Cookie. Prices range from $2.00 to $4.00.

Off The Grid, which operates several regular street-food events in San Francisco and is planning further expansion, held a soft launch in Berkeley last Wednesday. Such was its popularity, with estimates of up to 2,000 people turning up, that several of the food trucks ran dry.

According to Heather Hensley, Executive Director of the North Shattuck Association which co-hosts the event, the line-up for June 8 will be Liba Falafel, Hapa SF, Brass Knuckle, Five Ten Burger, CupKates Truck, Fins on the Hoof, Skylite Snowballs, The Taco Guys, as well as Saul’s.

Off The Grid, runs from 5-9pm at the intersection of Shattuck and Rose where the north Berkeley Farmers’ Market takes place.
