There’s only one Food Truck Friday left, which I sadly will be missing. I figured it was important for me to impart my food truck knowledge/recommendations so others can partake in all of food glory that I will miss out on. With that said, I have not been to every food truck in STL, so please add your own recommendations. I’m also only recommending trucks that I know go to Food Truck Friday. (Sarah’s Meltdown, Cheese Shack, I miss you so!!) Many of these places now have brick and mortars as well, which is probably a testament to how good they are.
Guerrilla Street Food – Sometimes the food can be so heavy (yet so good). The Fresh Lumpia are a great started. Light spring rolls (not fried) with vegetables. It comes with a sweet dipping sauce with gives it just a bit of zip.
Frankly Artisan Sausages – Their French Fries are out of control. Some of the best I’ve ever had. I love all fries: curly, shoestring, thick, thin, but the perfect fry has a slight crunch on the outside and soft pillowiness (yes, it’s a word when it comes to describing fries) on the inside. I had their standard brat, which was great as well.
Lulu’s Local Eatery – The Sweet Potato Falafel was one of the first things I ever had from a food truck and it remains a staple for me. I’m not a vegetarian, but this sandwich packs so much flavor I’d become one if it meant eating this everyday.
K-Bop STL – I’ve only been able to go here once, but I will definitely be back. I had the Teriyaki Chicken Bop, which was delicious: sweet potato noodles, lettuce, sweet chicken. Many of their other ‘bops’ sound awesome, but all have ‘spicy’ in the name. Given that Food Truck Friday has been pretty sweltering most months this summer, I steered clear, but I’ll be anxious to
Seoul Taco – Isn’t Mexican and Korean the best food combo ever? If you’ve been to Seoul Taco, you’re nodding your head. The burrito is my go-to. The kimchi fried rice give it the perfect amount of spice. A hearty meal for a great price.
Sarah’s Cake Stop – I am in a committed relationship with Sarah’s. There is no one else in my eyes. (My husband and I ever rented the truck for our wedding.) I love their brownies, specifically the Twix. My husband always gets the Snack Cake cupcake. A surprising stand out though is their Wedding Cake. It’s sweet and moist but lighter than many of their other options.
