I had better luck with fried chicken. The meat is tender and simply seasoned. The exterior is crisp (did I mention that already?) and not greasy. You can order a plain fried-chicken sandwich or the "Chicken Parmesan," which is topped with provolone and marinara. There's also a grilled-chicken sandwich, with provolone and a roasted red pepper and sun-dried tomato spread. (All three are priced at $7.)

Not in the mood for fried food? If you're lucky, the homemade salsiccia special will be available: a plump, fennel-spiked sausage with sautéed onion and green bell pepper, served on a soft bun. Pair this — or anything, really — with Sicily Streat's French fries. They're the best thing the truck has to offer, the potatoes sliced medium-thick and cooked to that perfect balance of crunch and softness.

The "Yadi Hottie" taco, a World Series special, featured Yucatan pork, Sriracha-cha (a cream-based sauce made with Sriracha) and a white-cheddar blend. See more of Jennifer Silverberg's Cha Cha Chow photos here.

T-ravs, chicken Parm sandwiches, sausages with peppers and onions: This isn't exactly trailblazing cuisine in St. Louis. Give Sicily Streat credit, though: The siblings seem to have scoped out a few landing spots where the stuff's not within arm's reach.

No wonder Mangia didn't want them to use their name.....they are serving raw meat to people! (and a food critic at that!)

Not really sure I understand your rip on Downtown STL at the beginning of your article. Don't know where you live but I assume you work in the Loop, possibly the most played out neighborhood of all time. There are many food options downtown, many of them quite interesting. Food trucks are now one more.

For all of Sicily Streat's bloviating during the Great Mangia Name Mugging of 2011, you would think they would have their prep down when the proverbial rubber hit the road - especially after they time and again maligned the food at Mangia compared to their own. Truth be told, I've never had an un or under-cooked meal served to me at Mangia...so...there you go.

i didn't take his comments as any kind of rip on the city-just saying that the food trucks hadn't been in his neighborhood. i also work downtown, and there are very few restaurants within walking distance, and the food trucks have yet to come anywhere near me. i don't think he was bashing anything.

I thinks he should have said "but of course food trucks go where the people are many and the local government allows"
