Foxy Falafel's new truck: a first taste
Owner Erica Straight is rocking her newly minted food truck, and she's hitting the streets of St. Paul. After a few false starts, the new truck is out and serving up her famous vegetarian sandwiches.
The falafel are just as scrumptious as we had remembered. Crunchy on the outside, tender with a wisp of herby flavor on the inside. It's worth noting the brilliance of her packing in the pita bread. First a layer of highly seasoned shredded cabbage is layered into the bottom, then a swipe of garlicky, tahini-rich hummus, followed by the balls, then topped with an abundance of cucumbers. Perhaps the most astonishing thing about this sandwich is the jewel-colored tomatoes dotting the top. They are astoundingly flavorful. Tomatoes are not supposed to taste like this so early in our growing season, but there they were.
Just like her farmers market locations, there are also gluten-free ways of getting your falafel fix.
