Look Sacramento! A mobile food vendor! Believe it or not, all the regular restaurants in Minneapolis did not simultaneously implode or go out of business. Food carts CAN exist, even right next to regular restaurants, like this one.
The Chef Shack was darling and had inventive and fun choices of things to eat. Thai curry! Bacon beer brats! Soft shell crab sandwich! Goat cheese ice cream! And all these great homemade condiments!
And even more. I am in love with this idea.
Here’s a sweet potato taco.
And pulled pork nachos. Both delicious. And affordable.
Here’s the view on either side of us. Mill City Museum and the Guthrie Theater. In the center where we were was a little farmers’ market with a number of little mobile food vendors. I think there were more stalls under the mill’s overhang (see below) with people selling more food and possibly crafts, but we got there a bit late to see them.
We got there just in time for snacks at the Shack! Go over there if you’re in the ‘hood. Good, affordable, fun food for meat and veg-heads alike.
