The Scoop: Guerrilla Street Food adds to growing fleet of area food trucks

January 11th 11:01am, 2011

011011_guerrillaSome folks in the Twitter world have known since late fall that Guerrilla Street Food was coming to St. Louis, but it wasn’t until today that owner Brian Hardesty was ready to talk in detail about his food truck venture.

Hardesty, currently executive chef at Terrene, and longtime friend Joel Crespo plan to hit the streets with their food truck this April. While Hardesty and Crespo will pick up their vehicle – one that they hope to one day covert to biodiesel – at the end of this month, Hardesty told The Scoop that they’re still in the process of securing licenses to do business in St. Louis City and County.

Guerrilla Street Food will feature a rotating menu of grilled food or, clarified Hardesty, “things that we can do on a grill.” Hardesty described the concept as “affordable food that is perfect for eating while walking down the street.” Sandwiches are a yes, but so are some Asian items. Crespo has quite a bit of expertise in Filipino cuisine, said Hardesty, so look for the duo’s interpretation of steamed pork buns, known as siopao, and other Filipino street food. Hardesty also noted that the food would be made fresh on the truck, and that they will be using local products as much as possible, including proteins like beef, pork and chicken. As part of the plan to serve from-scratch food, Hardesty and Crespo will also be making their own bread.

A Web site is still to come, but you can keep track of the food truck on Twitter (@guerrillastreet) or check them out on Facebook.
