Best-Looking Food Truck - Ngon's Converted VW Bus - 2013 Best of MN

  • May 19, 2013 - 9:04 PM

Most food truck operators opt for the basic big-and-bulky converted-laundry-vehicle model. Not Hai Truong. The chef/owner of Ngon Vietnamese Bistro launched his food truck last year in a meticulously restored 1967 Volkswagen bus. Fun and funky, with a two-tone green paint job punctuated by Crayola-colored peace signs, the blast-from-the-past allows Truong to take his brand of locavore-meets-Vietnamese cooking beyond his charming University Avenue restaurant, in style. Truong, a total gear head, did the work himself, in the garage of his St. Paul home. Track its whereabouts on Twitter. Better yet, just look for the distinctive pop-up roof.
