Best Street Food2012 Finalist See 2012’s Winner »
128 Cleveland Ave. N., St. Paul, MN 55104
There are many things to appreciate about the food from the 128 Cafe truck, but let's just skip the formality and get down to the bare bones of the matter: You have to get the ribs. Yes, the sesame beef skewers are incredible, served over that ginger-flavored slaw and dreamy pickled carrots. Yes, the truck does serve many of the seasonal, perfectly balanced dishes available at its neighborhood gem of a restaurant. But no one can say they know the Twin Cities food scene without tasting these ribs. Mahogany colored, enveloped in just a whisper of sauce, perfectly charred, the meat easily separates from the bone. The flavor is smoky, salty, rich, and crispy. Jill Wilson, owner of the restaurant and truck, was also the leader in organizing the initial food truck court last summer, gathering a crew along the streets of downtown St. Paul, giving workers a destination for their Wednesday lunch break from May through September.
