In honor of Cinco de Mayo, Sweet Constructions is offering a new ice cream sandwich made with their award-winning brownie cookie and Mitchell’s Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream! Also this week: Snickerdoodle Swirl with Dulce de Leche Ice Cream, Vegan (and Flourless) Almond Cookie with Chocolate Coconut Bliss. Oh my yum!

Sweet Constructions bakes the kinds of sweets that we like to eat: small, rich, old time favorites with natural ingredients and an elegant twist – ice cream sandwiches, mini cupcakes, chocolate crackles, snickerdoodles, and brownies to name just a few. It started in the Mission when Kate and Mindi met as upstairs and downstairs neighbors on 21st Street and started baking together for friends and fundraisers, like at at Buena Vista School. They ventured out with their cookie cart onto Valencia St and are now in their second season at the Mission Community Market!

Also in honor of cinco de mayo, special treats from Mission Fave Chaac Mool! Support Chaac Mool in the La Cocina Cart while watching youth dancers or listening to Danilo. Show your love with CHAAC drawings on the street! Real chalk provided. Cinco do Mayo menu especial includes:

Crisp corn tortilla topped with choice of:
-Cochinita Pibil, Chaac Mool’s signature slow-roasted, achiote-rubbed Niman Ranch pork, lettuce tomato, nopales (stewed prickly pear cactus) and handmade red and green salsa.
-Pollo, shredded chicken breast marinated with fresh herbs, lettuce, tomato, jicama, mango and handmade red and green salsa.
-Vegetarian lettuce tomato, sauteed mushrooms and handmade red and green salsa.

CHILES RELLENOS de Picadillo de Res en Escabeche
– poblano peppers stuffed with niman ranch beef, slowly cooked in vinegar to give it a unique flavor.

Also for Cinco de Mayo:
Emmy’s – Jammin Jalapeno Jelly
Good Foods BBQ – Tacos!! Grilled chicken with a salsa Verde
