The Scoop: Mangia Mobile newest food truck to hit STL streets

January 31st 12:01pm, 2011

13111_mangiaLittle Sicily is rolling through the streets of St. Louis. Mangia Mobile is the latest food truck to hit the area, and owners Catherine, Thomas and Alex Daake are dishing out house-made Italian-American fusion fare with recipes inspired by their grandmother.

Mangia Mobile is a full-service kitchen-on-wheels, with all food cooked to order. The menu includes street food delights such as soft-ball sized arancini, a caprese panini, fried chicken sandwiches, meatball subs, T-ravs, hand-cut fries and pigs in a blanket. The Daake siblings use local products whenever possible, seen in the likes of bread from Fazios Bakery and coffee from Chauvin Coffee. Payment is cash-only.

Mangia Mobile travels all over the city of St. Louis, but can most frequently be found downtown at 8th street and Walnut Street (by the Bowling Hall of Fame) serving lunch weekdays from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. In addition, Catherine Daake said that the Mangia Mobile will use 8th and Walnut as home base for all home Cardinal games, at least for the first few innings.  Track the truck via Twitter @MangiaMobile or Facebook.
