Music at the Intersection has an incredible lineup of food trucks this weekend
The Music at the Intersection festival held in the Grand Center Arts District Saturday, Sept. 9, and Sunday, Sept. 10, aims to bring a global spotlight on St. Louis culture, from the city’s world-class musical artists to the food that fuels them. (Check out our previous article on the festival for a more general overview of what to expect.)
This year's festival will have an all-star lineup of St. Louis food trucks. Visitors will have the opportunity to taste a bit of everything, including barbecue, Thai cuisine, woodfired pizza, Italian ice and fresh-pressed juice.
“We had great success last year with our food trucks … guests will be able to enjoy just about anything that they could desire,” said Chris Hansen, executive director of the Kranzberg Arts Foundation, which hosts the event.
The festival’s lineup of acts on four wheels is as follows:
Many of the trucks will be bringing out their classic menu while others will be launching specialty items. Cajun Seduction will be adding gumbo to their traditional menu of mac and cheese, crab cakes and catfish. “My thing is to make memories, and not just provide food,” said owner Ken Lige. “I want the food to be memorable.”
Doughboys will be serving up fresh, personal-pan wood-fired pies. Customers can customize their own pie or try one of Doughboy’s specials like the sweet heat chicken pizza with pineapple, peppers, onion and sweet heat sauce. For those worried about long lines, fear not because Doughboys will be cooking up pies in under three minutes in their wood-fired oven.
Farmtruk is known for its delicious takes on American comfort classics. From chicken and dumplings to their brisket mac and cheese, Farmtruk aims to satisfy your cravings. Some other dishes include the B.L.E., a bacon and egg breakfast sandwich with bibb lettuce, tomato and basil aioli served on a Vitale’s egg bun; and Farmtruk’s take on tacos, which includes your choice of protein, avocado cream, pickled red onion, pickled jalapeno, mixed greens and micro cabbage on a flour tortilla.
Go Gyro Go
This popular truck serves gyros in a variety of flavors, including classic – a mix of beef and lamb – along with chicken souvlaki, chicken tahini and veggie gyros. You can also order the Naked Gyro in any of the mentioned flavors but it will be served on a bed of romaine lettuce rather than in a pita.
Grace Chicken + Fish
The truck version of the brick-and-mortar Grace Meat + Three will be serving their signature fried chicken tenders in three-piece meals, as well as their catfish in two-piece meals served with comeback sauce and green tomato relish. For sides, try the garlic seasoned fries or creamy coleslaw.
Another thirst-quenching option for visitors is Juicemasters: the one-stop truck for fresh-squeezed fruit juice and smoothies. Owner Corey Logan recommends the watermelon and fresh mint lemonade. If you’re in the mood for something even more rejuvenating, try something from the superfood smoothie menu, where customers can enjoy fresh fruits and veggies in delicious blends.
Mr. Noodle will be on site Sunday serving an assortment of lo mein bowls with various proteins and veggies. We were not able to confirm specific menu items as of press time, but the truck has offered a variety of dishes in the past, including sweet and sour chicken, teriyaki chicken and Thai chile tofu.
Pure Catering STL
This truck will offer catfish, chicken wings, chicken tenders and nachos for entrees. On the dessert side, there will be funnel cake fries and Ted Drewes ice cream.
Scoops & More
To cool off in the late summer heat, pop by Scoops & More and nab some premium Italian water ice in a variety of fruity flavors.
The Sweet Side
For dessert, stop by the Sweet Side truck and sample some of their cookies, brownies and cakes. Grab a chocolate chip cookie, an oatmeal cream pie (which is also offered in a vegan variety), a classic slice of New York cheesecake, or the St. Louis classic gooey butter cake.
Treaux’s Cajun BBQ
Treaux Cajun BBQ will be bringing some bayou flavors to the Sauce Magazine food truck court. Customers will have the chance to try boudin, a Cajun smoked sausage, smoked chicken quarters, vegan jambalaya and red beans and rice. For those with a sweet tooth, owner Quen Bell will be bringing a selection of kettle corn from Sweet and Simple Kettle Corn.
Tuk Tuk Thai
Tuk Tuk Thai’s menu hosts a fleet of familiar southeast Asian offerings like sweet and sour, sesame and spicy kimchi chicken. Vegetarians will be able to try the Thai chile tofu. All entrees are served over a bed of white rice. Sides include spring rolls, Thai dumplings and crab Rangoon.
Wok & Roll
Wok & Roll serves up a variety of southeast Asian fusion food. Whether you're in the mood for a Vietnamese banh mi, tacos or sushi rice, Wok & Roll has got you covered. Other dishes include fried rice, spring rolls and crab Rangoon.
