Whole Sum Truck

You can find a food truck or two at just about every brewery and distillery in town, but there are a few spots in St. Paul where the army of eateries on wheels gather on a regular basis, making it easier to catch that fish taco for a quick lunch.  Find these trucks around town or the Landmark Center’s food truck rally every Wednesday through the summer.

Panini Pinups

This patriotic truck is all about nostalgic Americana serving pressed, classic sandwiches like grilled cheese or The Minnesota Spam topped with American cheese, Sriracha mayo and tomato. Swap a slice of caramelized pineapple instead for the tomato as a nod to our 50th state.

Bacon Me Crazy

Our nation’s love of bacon runs deep, so deep in fact, there is a plethora of food trucks around the country showcasing the sizzling delicacy. In St. Paul, we have Bacon-Me-Crazy, which features the golden strips of pig fat on lunch items like the Triple Threat Burger, bourbon bacon grilled cheese and bacon cheddar fries. Seriously.

Whole Sum Kitchen

Lunch doesn’t have to weigh you down. Whole Sum Kitchen serves healthy, fresh, vegan friendly juices and smoothies free of concentrates, extra sugars, purees or additives. While the smoothie bar started rolling in 2015, they have recently introduced food items as well including salads and acai bowls.

The Soup Coupe

Sometime it gets cold in the summer in Minnesota. Shocking, yes, but that should not deter food truck loyalist. The Soup Coupe serves soul warming cups of goodness like chicken wild rice, Sante Fe black bean and tomato lentil. Get it in a cup or, even better, a bread bowl. They have wraps available for those muggy days too.

Tiki Tim's

Tiki Tim's changes their offerings as inspiration strikes, but their menu focuses on tropical dishes like Tiki Cakes- crab and shrimp patties kicked up a notch with jalapeno peppers and drizzled with roasted red pepper mayo. You can even hire the shiny blue truck to cater your next Luau.
