Natalie Coleman and Alex Brand believe the world can be a better place. After meeting at Wesleyan College, they discovered a shared passion for travel and food. Soon after graduation, they struck out on an ambitious bike expedition from Prague to Bangkok, collecting experiences and flavors along the way. They soon opened a stand at the Mill City Farmer's Market selling their locally sourced, heavenly tasting foods. As soon as the City Council voted to allow food trucks, they poured everything they had into constructing their sunny little yellow trailer. They opened three years ago and work morning, noon, and night in the warm months, and then pack it all in and go back to traveling the world while the rest of us suckers dig out from our snowbanks. The flavor results of these experiences are homey, sophisticated and exotic all at once. A recent visit included a Mexican-style braised beef, rubbed with coffee and mellow spices. Tender, fall-apart, grass-fed beef was then tucked into a Salty Tart hoagie and topped with a crisp slaw. Menu perennials like the BLT and ham-and-cheese are served on crispy baguettes, laced with adorable little greens. No visit to their cart is complete without a taste of their homemade sodas: always balanced, refreshing, and never overly sweet. Find them at the Mill City Farmers Market and on weekdays on Nicollet outside the IDS building. To find its location each day, follow it at dandelionkitchen.com.
