A taste of warm weather in downtown Mpls

As weather patterns as of late have shown, you’ve got to enjoy every bit of spring when it shows up. Today was a perfect day for a little lunch al fresco. On the menu, a beef torta from World Street Kitchen, the food truck created by the owners of Saffron restaurant.

The sandwich features shredded beef, guacamole, jalapenos and cheese pressed between the halves of a white baguette. I wolfed it down (actually, I may have swallowed a piece of tin foil) while sitting basking in the sun on a marble planter on Nicollet Mall.

So what did you have for lunch? And where did you eat it?
