The sun is shining, birds are singing and stomachs are rumbling like truck generator mimics. It's time to take lunch outside and get back in touch with the curb-side dining culture. St. Paul kicks off the season in fine form with not just one, but two food truck courts.

The first begins May 15th  at 11 a.m. across Kellogg from the St. Paul courthouse. The lineup features  Vellee Deli serving Asian fusion goodies like a currito a Thai curry burrito and outrageously yummy banh mi; Simply Steve's serves sliders, sandwiches and more; Fork in the Road serve their slow-roasted pork gooey grilled cheese; Gastrotruck combines fine-dining to paper boat vessels (and has some of the best vegetarian/vegan burgers you could ever want); and the final spot will be held by rib-masters 128 Cafe. They will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Thursday there is another crew of trucks serving lunch just down Kellogg and Robert Street by a grassy stretch with a view of the river. This food truck court even has live music, provided by The Herringbone Badgers who play Irish and Scottish folk music. Trucks serving food include A Cupcake Social that proves the cupcake trend need not be a passing fad; Cafe Racer, a relatively new truck who serve takes on Colombian classics - their pork plate is not to be missed; Home Street Home truck that makes wholesome, made from scratch dishes to love, and Neato's Burgers, home of the drive-in style burger and the duck fat fries that make us swoon. These guys will also provide picnic blankets, so that diners can enjoy the park setting.
