A Twisted new food truck
Spotted on Marquette Avenue in downtown Minneapolis, and on Mears Park in downtown St. Paul: Another food truck with bricks-and-mortar roots. This time it’s the Twisted Fork Grille (1342 Grand Av., St. Paul, www.twistedforkgrille.com), which is hawking walleye fish cakes, turkey-wild rice wraps, roasted corn-bean burgers, sweet potato chips and more. Track its whereabouts on Twitter, @twistedforkgrille.
Saturday and Sunday mornings
Weekend breakfast (served 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.) is now on the menu at the Red Cow (3624 W. 50th St., Mpls., http://redcowmn.com). Chef Evan Connelly is preparing pastrami hash, barbacoa beef chilaquiles with a chipotle hollandaise, a pancake flight (red velvet, sweet potato, whole grain with apples), a peanut butter-bacon-and-egg-topped burger, Scotch eggs and more.
Here’s a Saturday tip: Browse the Fulton Farmers Market (4901 Chowen Av. S., Mpls., www.fultonfarmersmarket.org), located a block from the restaurant, before or after breakfast. The market is open 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
