2 Girls 4 Wheels is a food truck serving the Greater St. Louis Area. It serves pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs, brats and more.
One of the first in the wave of mobile vendors in St. Louis, Cha Cha Chow harkens back to the prototypical food truck, focusing on tacos. These aren’t traditional Mexican tacos, mind you; they’re playful takes on the form. The best might be the beef short rib, the meat braised for five hours and served with red cabbage and a creamy, spicy “Cha Cha Sauce.” Other taco varieties include pulled pork with salsa verde, and curried sweet potato. A few sandwiches, including a good grilled burger, are available. The homemade aguas frescas present a refreshing alternative in the beverage department.
Eliott Harris won a following for his work behind the sushi bar at Miso on Meramec in Clayton. Now he has gone solo — and mobile — with Chop Shop, serving inventive, overstuffed sushi rolls that you can hold in your hand to eat, like a wrap or burrito. Rolls include the “El Camino” (spicy yellowfin tuna with cucumber, avocado and a ginger-garlic ponzu) and the “Woodie” (snow crab utzed with a chile aioli).
A contemporary take on the old-fashioned lunch wagon, with food prepared in a traditional commercial kitchen and dished up from the back of a modified pickup. The signature sandwich, a strange mixture of falafel and couscous, is actually the one to skip. The gyro, on the other hand, is good, featuring thin and tender strips of beef. Also available is a curried chicken sandwich. The side dish is a sack of fried naan chips with dipping sauces. Follow Falafelwich on Twitter @falafelwich.
Feed Me Banh Mi is a food truck serving the Greater St. Louis Area. It specializes in Vietnamese food.
Go! Gyro! Go! owner Nick Cowlen grew up in the restaurant business, working for his father at Clayton's Top of the Sevens restaurant. After a spell in real estate, he along with his wife, Laura, launched Go! Gyro! Go! this past fall. The truck's signature gyro follows the classic template: thin, tender strips of seasoned beef and lamb folded into pita with tomato, red onion, parsley, feta cheese and tzatziki sauce. The meat is excellent, the seasoning adding a lightly spicy punch to its natural flavors (to me, at least, tasting of lamb more than beef), while the toppings — especially bright red slices of tomato that actually tasted like, you know, tomato and the thick, tangy tzatziki — provide a cool, crisp counterpoint. A small, but welcome touch: Your pita is lightly toasted on the grill. Go! Gyro! Go! also grills skewers of marinated white-meat chicken, which it serves as a straight-up shish kebab or removed from the skewer in a pita with the same toppings as the gyro. The chicken has a good balance of grill char, its own essence and a bright, simple marinade (I tasted a hint of citrus and a dash of herbs). A vegetarian gyro swaps out the meat for cucumber, green pepper and kalamata olives. The online menu lists a "Bifteki Gyro," featuring Greek meatballs, but this wasn't available on any of my visits.
That Guerrilla Street Food is a truck might be the least interesting fact about it. From their mobile kitchen, Brian Hardesty and Joel Crespo serve delicious, inventive Filipino fare of a sort rarely (if ever) seen in St. Louis. The signature dish — the “Flying Pig” — is the standout: tender slow-roasted pork with chiles, sriracha sauce and calamansi (a lime-like citrus fruit), all served over rice and topped decadently with an egg cooked for an hour in a sous-vide bath. A limited menu, but impeccably fresh ingredients at a very fair price.
