Anchor Fish & Chips: A new food truck, a party, and a dream realized
Northeast Minneapolis restaurant Anchor Fish & Chips is expecting quite a party when it launches its new food truck in its parking lot on May 19. Its debut will be part of the northeast Minneapolis 2012 Art-a-Whirl and will feature a few beer vendors as well as live music. Fish and chips, meat pasties, and a variety of other Irish goodies will be on the menu when Anchor joins the ranks of our eclectic mobile merchants. .
We recently talked about the young restaurant's new endeavor with co-owner and chef Luke Kyle.
The chips of Anchor Fish & Chips
When asked which city he'll base the truck out of, Minneapolis or St. Paul, Kyle explains that the current plan for the van is to primarily focus on festivals and events throughout the state. Kyle does say they'll probably try out some lunches in downtown Minneapolis, but it will probably only be a few days a week. The truck won't offer the full restaurant menu, naturally, but you can expect to see the Irish mainstays such as the fish, the chips, the pasties, and, of course, the mushy peas.
