Another thing I wanted to cross off my St. Louis bucketlist was go to a Food Truck Friday. It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like – on summer Fridays, 20+ of food trucks gather in Tower Grove Park to bestow us with their delicious food.
As you can imagine, a ton of people go to this thing. After waiting in the back of a very, very long line, we were told that the food truck ran out of food (does that even make sense?!).
So we moved on to a different truck, where we waited in another long, long line. This husky in front of us captured our interest for a while, though!
When it seemed like every food truck we lined up for ran out of food, we fell back on plan B – go somewhere else to eat. 🙁 So I didn’t get to taste the food, but I can say that I went to Food Truck Friday!
I probably won’t get a chance to go back in the near future, but here’s a tip for y’all who want to try it this summer: GO EARLY! And divide and conquer (so you can sample them all)!
So I didn’t get to taste the food of FTF, but luckily, we were in an area full of great restaurants. Our plan B was dining at Rooster on South Grand.
I was kind of surprised that inside was so empty for a Friday night, but maybe everyone was at Food Truck Friday? Good for us because there was no wait…
I was taking pictures of my food when the waiter came by and announced that it was the duck ragu. Wait, that’s what I ordered…turns out they placed Elise’s food in front of me by accident. So I got a snap of the pork confit noodle instead:
So there ya go, hope you’ll have better luck with Food Truck Friday than I did!
Have you ever been to FTF? What are your favorite restaurants in St. Louis?
