Mpls Food Trucks - Who's The Best?

Diana_mn | Jun 23, 2011 10:51 AM

I have the good fortune of working in downtown Minneapolis, which is in the midst of a food truck explosion during weekday lunch times. So far I have been able to sample food from four of them (Dandelion Kitchen is next on my "to do" list).

I have to say, there is not a bad truck in the bunch. But I'm beginning to develop my personal ranking of "the best."

For me Hola Arepa is mouth-wateringly craveable & dificult to stop thinking about once my lunch time rolls around. The savoriness of the meat, the spiciness of the sauces, the pickled onions & condiments - it's just the perfect street food. I would place that one at the top of my current list.

World Street Kitchen and Vellee Deli would be neck and neck for the number 2 & 3 spots, and right on the heels of HA. I'd give WSK the slight edge for creativity in changing their menu offerings regularly and deliciously. But Vellee's Korean bbq is not to be missed (and I have yet to try their banh mi)!

The Smack Shack would be slightly behind for me, mostly because they're at a higher price point than the others. They're still turning out amazing food. Lobster rolls on the streets of Minneapolis? Who' would have imagined?!

So anyway, that's how I'm seeing things at the moment. What are others opinions, and what am I still missing out on? Summer (if it ever gets here) will be over fast, and I want to take advantage of these trucks while they're around!
