Andrew Zimmern and His AZ Canteen Food Truck

Andrew Zimmern’s AZ Canteen just debuted this past weekend at the Minnesota State Fair. It’s kinda funny he would choose to introduce the truck to the public there since carny food is probably one of the worst things people associate with Food Trucks. Check out the Menu and Ingredients (this is straight from the AZ Canteen site):

Menu

  • Andouille, Oyster and Crab Gumbo
  • Crispy Pork Belly with Green Papaya Salad, Chiles, Lime With Fried Egg
  • Cabrito Butter Burger with Roasted Tomatoes, Charred Onions, Pickles
  • Cabrito Sausage Grinder with Cabbage Slaw
  • Griddled Veal Tongue on a toasted Parker roll with Lemon, Capers, Arugula and Tonnato Sauce
  • IZZY’S Handcrafted Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • Nicaraguan Dulce de Leche Shaved Ice with Pound Cake “Loly’s Style”

 

Available Sides

  • Potato Salad / Chips

Beverages

  • Jamaica Hibiscus Punch
  •  A Selection of Natural Handmade and Artisanal Sodas
  • Juice of the Day
  • Bottled Water

 

Ingredients

From our singular cabrito sausage and sliders — custom-blended for AZ Canteen by Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors — to our signature IZZY’s ice cream sandwiches, we’re thrilled to serve some of our favorite food items.

  • Cabrito Sausage & Cabrito Burgers – Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors
  • Pork – Pastures-a-Plenty
  • Andouille Sausage – Kramarczuk’s
  • Produce – Hidden Stream Farm
  • Eggs – Fairview Farms
  • Local Dairy – White Water Gardens
  • Artisan Breads – New French Cafe & Bakery
  • Ice Cream Sandwiches – IZZY’s ice cream with Birchwood Cafe Cookies

 

There’s some stellar ingredients as well as interesting sounding food on the truck that makes me wonder what the food costs & prices must be. It was very cool to see that his visit to Raspado Loly’s in Sweetwater made such an impression on him that he added a tribute dessert. The rumor is the truck will be touring the country and since he hosted the SoBe Food & Wine Festival’s Trucks on the Beach this year it would make sense we would be one of the stops. I would pencil in February 2013 for a visit if I were you.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
