Best Food Trucks Saint Paul Minnesota
Aside from working inside Giant Metal Boxes (Food Trucks) on days when the temperature either dipped below 20 degrees, or soared above the 90 degree mark, I LOVED working on food trucks.
But, I will never forget that one winter night when the temperature was 12 degrees Fahrenheit (-11 C) during my shift in a FREEZING COLD METAL BOX.
Upon returning home from that horrific work shift with frozen fingers, toes, and a crushed ego, I peeled off my ski clothing and fur boots, and burst into tears exclaiming, “This is officially the day I regret having to drop out of college!”
Food Truck Owners are some of the most passionate and hardworking people I’ve ever met and I can totally appreciate the hard work and effort it takes to own and run one of these eateries on wheels.
Rolling On The River
Saint Paul, Minnesota is home to some amazing “meals on wheels” food trucks, which are mostly at Rice Park, Mears Park, or parked at random spots around the city throughout the week.
TBEX North America 2016 closing night party attendees were privy to food stylings from seven of the Best Food Trucks Saint Paul Minnesota, which were rolled out along the banks of the Mississippi River for our exclusive dining pleasure.
In addition to the fine food and drink served along the riverbank, we also had the chance to cruise along the Mississippi on a Padelford Riverboat!
Food Truck Festivities
Although I tried REALLY hard to eat everything that was offered, I fell a little short. In addition to the SEVEN food trucks, there also were NINE hometown breweries on hand. Since I don’t drink beer, I concentrated HEAVILY on feeding my face (no pun).
There were also THIRTY Hometown Brews offered at the party, and many of the Travel Bloggers enjoyed quite a few of them.
THANK YOU To The Walking Tourists
Truth be told, I was too busy shmoozing, shooting a Periscope Video and eating, to take too many photos of the food, so THANK YOU to The Walking Tourists for sharing most of the pictures for my blog post!
