World Street Kitchen is a more casual offshoot of the upscale Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurant Saffron operated by chef Sameh Wadi out of a parking lot at Nicollet and Fifth when weather permits. The truck's menu spans the globe: everything from family recipes (Mom's spinach pie) to lamb barbacoa tacos to Mexican-style corn on the cob coated with crumbled chilis, fresh cheese, and lime aioli. Wadi's curried chicken banh mi is better than the ones at most Vietnamese restaurants: a French baguette with a delicate crust, sliced in half and mounded with spicy shredded chicken, pickled vegetables, fresh basil, and cilantro. World Street Kitchen's beverage selection includes Mexican Cokes and lemonade that's made with roasted preserved lemons to give it a more intensely concentrated flavor. If you need something sweet to get you through an afternoon's worth of conference calls or data entry, try the killer salted caramel ice cream sandwich--it's cream with a burnished copper soul tucked between two chocolate discs. To the downtown brown baggers who think they can do better: Yeah, right--good luck!
