This week we head through the sliding side door at MilkJam Creamery and head over to the food truck turned restaurant that is World Street Kitchen. There’s a reason that people were begging for more than just the truck.
World Street Kitchen is conveniently connected to MilkJam Creamery, as they are under the same ownership, and the unique tastes and flavors are definitely a common trait here. Just off of Lyndale Avenue, it’s easily recognizable by the big WSK sign above the front door. With an open and industrial design throughout, you’re able to see all parts of this restaurant at work, from the eating spaces to back in the kitchen for food prep. One of the coolest parts about this eating space is the bar area, where you can sit and watch the experts at work crafting up the great dishes on the menu.
For the food at World Street Kitchen, it’s really hard to find somewhere to start. When we got recommendations to try it out, everyone was suggesting different items that we HAD to try. From Asian, to Caribbean, to Mediterranean, they cover all different varieties. There are so many options on the menu, we’re just going to go over what we had, starting with the Korean BBQ Beef Short Rib Lettuce Wraps. With a side of kimchi and sesame, this one packs some punch while still maintaining a great refreshing taste. Another great eat we had with a similar style was the OG Chicken Yum Yum bowl, filled with chicken, broccoli, shiitake mushrooms, rice, and their secret sauce, there’s no surprise that this was one of their most popular items from the food truck. Lastly, the Sweet Thang Fish Sammich is a must have for any fish lover. This huge chunk of fish is battered in “New Bay” mayo, covered in shredded lettuce, and served on a nice soft bun, and will for sure go down as one of the best meals we’ve had doing Hays Take. Other notables out there are the Bangkok Burrito, an Asian twist on burritos, as well as their Blinged Out Guacamole and their variety of tacos.
There’s a reason that Sameh and Saed Wadi have been so successful with their food endeavors in World Street Kitchen and MilkJam Creamery, and we attribute it to their willingness to create something new and exciting as well as executing those ideas. There’s so much flavor in each meal that really makes you sit back and appreciate what you’re eating. Just make sure when you to try it out, you get there before the out-the-door lunch line rush!
