Truck Park on West 7th

A while ago the wife and I stopped by the Truck Park venue in Saint Paul and got to sample one of their homemade, and gigantic, ice cream sandwiches. This past weekend we had another opportunity to visit for a large gathering of friends. We arrived a bit early so we could get some real food, and I opted for their street tacos.

I also decided to get an Old Style brand beer, since I figured that corn-shell tacos deserved a nice corn derived beer. Needless to say, not the best beer I’ve ever had.

Once all of our friends arrived the party started, and the restaurant brought out 4 of their giant 15 lb. ice cream sandwiches. These are made with ice cream from Sebastian Joe’s and cookies from T-Rex Cookie. The cookies that made up the top and bottom are the size of pizzas. They filled them with all different flavors of ice cream which meant that you had no idea what type of ice cream would be in your slice. It was a lot of fun.

IMG_1886.jpgI managed to eat about 80% of my piece, however I lost willpower with the bottom cookie. The cookies are so thick that it’s really hard to get through them. I feel like I could have just gone with a single cookie on the bottom, since I had to spoon out the ice cream anyway. Despite this, it was incredibly delicious. An awesome way to round out the day.
