There's a wide variety of fantastic food available in an ever-expanding fleet of food trucks on the streets of the Twin Cities.

It can be tough to keep track of them. One good suggestion is to find out the Twitter handle of your favorite rolling restaurant and follow them that way.

The Roaming Hunger website has pretty good info on our local trucks.

And the Heavy Table has a great recent look at the food truck scene in Minneapolis, and another one for St. Paul.

CityPages took a shot at making an interactive map.
