It's bulgogi taco time

Just because it's officially fall doesn't mean we're going to part with our favorite curbside lunch routine. Recently we visited St. Paul where we found a lunch well-suited to these cooler days.

Brava's chicken curry sounds perfect for a fall afternoon

A semi-circle of colorfully decorated trucks held court outside Harriet Brewing this summer, luring fans with seductive scents of bulgogi, fried pork belly, and Argentinian empanadas. The first food truck rally organized by the Minnesota Food Truck Association (MNFTA) was such a success, they're now hosting a second rally for fall, and this one promises to be even tastier.

Meat in cones

It's a cone! It's an empanada! It's an emconada! One of the gentlemen from this truck was canvassing the sidewalk, enticing passersby to take the quick out of their downtown Minneapolis I've-got-business-to-get-to step and linger over a spicy bite of their wares. Just one bite had most of them hooked.

Super spicy green papaya salad from AZ Canteen

A light drizzle did nothing to deter food-truck fans. The first-annual Great Food Truck Rally rolled into Harriet Brewing on Saturday. The first food-truck event thrown by the Minnesota Food Truck Association proved that with a little planning, such events need not be mired in high ticket prices, long lines, and inventory issues that have plagued others. This day was filled with food, music, and local craft beer.

The colorful truck is adorned with the daruma, from which it gets its name. Inside the truck is a teppanyaki chef (who spent some time doing all that fancy flipping food work at Benihana) serving several meat and rice options to food truck fans.

Cold beer, cool tunes, and hot eats, what could be better?

Without question, a gathering of food trucks is cause for celebration. Throw in some beer and local music and it's likely an evening of fun. Now, not every gathering has been a huge success; poor planning and high prices have plagued some other truck events. The difference with this event is that it's actually being run by the trucks -- no one knows their fans better than these small-business owners. The Minnesota Food Truck Association is inviting everyone to their first annual Great Minnesota Food Truck Rally on Saturday, July 27, at Harriet Brewing.

Finally, there's a truck serving finger-licking Korean-style barbecue on the streets of the Twin Cities. Ever since Roy Choi's Kogi truck kicked off the food truck revolution, we've been waiting for someone to bring us some mobile bulgogi. Today we found that truck.

Make your mobile food dreams come true

Food trucks may be in hibernation (although not all: Chef Driven Co, Tot Boss, Fork in the Road, and a couple others are still braving the frigid temps). However, street eats season is just a couple of months away. Have you got a great mobile food idea? We found a trailer that's looking for a new owner.
