Gastro Truck, Barrio, Hola Arepa, and more

Food trucks bring new eats to the street

The vehicle comes to Minneapolis from St. Paul's Cupcake cafe on University Avenue and usually carries about a dozen varieties of the shop's signature confection. Classics like the Trademark, a chocolate mousse-filled vanilla cupcake, and Red Velvet are bestsellers, but we're extra partial to the flavors that pack in three times the fun, Triple Chocolate and Caramel Cubed. The treats are world class. No wonder Cupcake's pastry whizzes, owner Kevin VanDeraa and catering manager Alicia Hinze, were recent competitors on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars.

Sarah Burt has one of the smallest street carts and most limited menus, but her $7 Italian meatball sandwich is so good you won't be looking for anything else. Burt sets up shop at Fifth and Nicollet Mall, just a few blocks from her other cooking job at the more highbrow eatery Haute Dish. Her grandmother's Italian heritage influenced Burt's street food specialty, and its meatballs, made from a blend of beef, pork, and veal, come out perfectly rich and tender. The tangy marinara is chunky with bits of onion, garlic, and herbs and tastes as if it was just ladled from nonna's pot—though to keep the sandwich's ratios working out right, you'll either have to ask for an extra scoop of the red stuff or leave the last few bites of the bun's hinge behind.

The Twisted Sister House of Hunger offers a short menu of deep-fried hot dogs, tacos, and sliders. There's better beef brisket to be found at eateries that specialize in barbecue, but Twisted Sister's has a pleasant smokiness and crisp, browned edges. The secret to the sandwich is the griddled bun and a generous squirt of sriracha mayonnaise, a.k.a. "polygamy sauce," owner Wesley Kaake's take on Utah's signature fry sauce. For dessert, Twisted offers four-bite wedges of frozen Chubby Girl cheesecakes for $3 a pop. The salted caramel version dipped in dark chocolate is especially delicious.
