Manna from Heaven: NAMED BEST FOOD TRUCK IN DENVER – 2012!

MARCH 29, 2012

“Talk about a movable feast! Manna from Heaven lives up to its name, turning out celestial Vietnamese street chow, including an amazing banh mi that’s built with pork, cilantro and fresh vegetables, quality ingredients all heaped on a first-rate baguette streaked with a spicy sauce of sriracha and mayonnaise…” — Article excerpt from http://www.westword.com/bestof/2012/award/best-food-truck-2118286/.

 

 

Aurora Sentinel – GRADE A Awards 2012 – FOOD TRUCK : Manna From Heaven Gourmet Food Truck & Catering:

AUGUST 17, 2012

“Taco trucks and catering trucks at worksites have been around forever but there’s a new breed of food trucks locally that offer restaurant-quality fare. Fans of Aurora’s Manna From Heaven truck noted the “freshness and quality of the ingredients,” the fact that “they have the best banh mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) around” and that they offer “just great food.” ”

 

101 Best Food Truck in America 2013 – Manna From Heaven (Denver)

June 11, 2013 by Arthur Bovino

“It’s a bright blue food truck called “Manna From Heaven” with a mascot rabbit named Easter, and it serves Vietnamese-inspired cuisine. That could, to the cynical sound like a disaster. But pot stickers, egg rolls, spring rolls, Vietnamese tacos, noodle and jasmine rice boats keep locals coming back again and again, and their banh mi was enough to win them Best Food Truck status last year.”

“For my dinner of choice, I opted for Manna From Heaven and their “Award-Winning Banh Mi.” Now I don’t bill myself as a Banh Mi expert. That’d be foolish since I’ve never had one before. I do know, however, that these sandwiches are supposed to be extremely tasty, and as such, extremely popular. Their website calls their Banh Mi “Vietnamese-inspired” and “non-traditional.” I call it most delicious…” — Article excerpt from http://apieceofconversation.com/blog/food-trucks-in-the-park-lousiville-Colorado

“Just because Civic Center Eats and the farmers’ markets have packed it up for the season doesn’t mean Denver’s food trucks go into hibernation. Hardly. Diners looking for roving eats can check out Food Truck Row. This coalition of mobile vendors—often including Manna From HeavenBiker Jim’sVegan Van, and Crock Spot—moves to different locations throughout the city several days each week.” — Article excerpt from  http://www.5280.com/blogs/2012/11/29/street-eats-food-truck-row

 

 

 

Policy kills off choices for campus grub

October 31, 2012 by News Staff

“Some of the food truck vendors, however, see a bright side to the change. For Manna From Heaven, a truck seen on campus every week, the policy will bring order and organization.

‘The change is OK. We need some rules applied,’ said a Manna From Heaven worker who wished to remain anonymous. ‘It’s a little crowded, and [has] gotten a little out of hand. But it’s nice that there’s a lot of trucks, because it offers more variety to students.'”

When Food Trucks Compete, Everyone Wins!

“The Manna From Heaven truck serves Vietnamese cooking, and offered samples of their rice boat. The rice boat started with steamed rice, topped off with half of a pot-sticker laid alongside a spoonful of their manna salad. It was well composed for a sample, offering a good preview of how the full dish might taste.

The Manna truck is a regular around campus, and is easy to spot with its blue sky and green field paint-job…” — Article excerpt from http://www.metnews.org/features/when-food-trucks-compete-everyone-wins/

 

 

 

 

SPARROWS & SPATULAS – The Denver Food Trucks at Civic Center EATS

June 20, 2012 by Batya

“I finally got to sample a Banh-Mi sandwich from Manna From Heaven— voted the best food truck (2012) in the Westword Magazine. I had heard really good things, but I wasn’t sure what to think of this Vietnamese food truck with a name that doesn’t quite ring Southeast-Asian to me. So, the verdict? Delicious. They had a vegetarian version of Banh Mi that was packed with tofu, pickled carrots, sprouts, potatoes (which I had not seen before) and topped with a generous handful of cilantro. It was coated in a fabulous (traditional) chili-sauce that reminded me of the sauces I put on everything when I was in Vietnam. The sandwich was really good. I now get the hype. I quenched my thirst with a gigantic limeade because one has got to keep hydrated in this weather!”

 

citylogoReader: Some trucks have been serving all year round

April 26, 2012 by Patricia Calhoun

 

“….but some trucks never went into hibernation during the cold months.

Says CandyCane:

Food Truck Season? There is no season. Several food trucks were out all year long. Manna From Heaven, Basic Kneads, Bob’s Blazin, Route 40, Arepas, PinkTank, Chef Driven, Crock Spot, and Street Eats were out serving serious food all winter long. They were the ones who kept the Food Truck industry alive while others went into hibernation. Where are all the articles about the Food Truck Row? THOSE are the events that livened up Denver every week. The people who slaved away in the bitter cold deserve a couple articles, too!

Thanks to all who served, and continue to serve!”

Where’s the party? On most food truck Twitter feeds, you’ll find real-time location and time updates (and you can make suggestions, too…TBEx conference, perhaps?). Food trucks sometimes face unusual circumstances, not typically found in restaurants – traffic delays, weather problems and sell-outs. Manna From Heaven, voted Westword’s Best Food Truck 2012, posts helpful updates about these things for its nearly 575 followers quite often.” – Article excerpt from http://www.turnerpr.com/blog/2012/04/tbex-guide-food/

AUGUST FAVORITES

“If quick, nutritious fare is what you crave, then the Manna from Heaven food cart is your ticket to foodie bliss. A gourmet food truck, Manna offers all the rice-y, noodle-y goodness of healthy, Vietnamese-inspired cuisine. Choose from favorites like “Oodles of Noodles” or the popular Popped Rice Platter (Banh Trang), a type of Vietnamese salad, similar to a taco salad (only healthier), with the popped rice bowl serving as the tostada. Load up the bowl and greens with a freshly grilled filling of beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, fish or veggies, smother in sriracha, and behold…manna from heaven. Wash it all down with a refreshing Zesty Limonade (a freshly squeezed lemon and lime drink with a twist) and rest contented knowing that 10% of your purchase will be used to feed a hungry person. Manna from Heaven is roadside eating (with a hint of benevolence) at its finest!” — Click the title to view the complete article.

“I had the most incredible vegetarian rice bowl made by Manna From Heaven! *sigh* Oh. Emm. Gee. Soooooooooooooo delicious!!! And a lot of food! Makes me happy to just think about it…!

Yahoo! Voices – REVIEW: Manna from Heaven Gourmet Food Truck

APRIL 5, 2012 by Banana Pumpernickel

“Drawn by the huge crowd that had gathered around the Manna Truck, I ordered a perfectly toasted, packed-to-the-brim Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwich) for just $6! Stuffed inside a bollilo roll slathered with Mayo/Sririacha, the freshly grilled Spiced Pork was double-layered, making a perfect sheet of succulent pork beneath an interesting combination of fresh and marinated veggies: Cucumber & celery, bean sprouts, daikon & carrots, and topped with fresh-cut cilantro, basil, and green onions. Doesn’t it just make you wonder how they fit all that goodness into one roll of bread? That’s what I thought, anyway…” — Article Excerpt from REVIEW: Manna from Heaven Gourmet Food Truck

EAT DRINK DENVER: Street Food: Manna From Heaven

FEBRUARY 3, 2012 by Andra

“Manna from Heaven, one of Denver’s most popular food trucks, was the dream of a sixteen-year-old girl and a fourteen-year-old boy wanted to get into the food business. The siblings told their dad, Larry, that they wanted to start a food truck — and he sprung into action. A fascinating family business was born.Larry, a Colorado native, former marine and cop, admits that when it comes to food, he “loves it all.” His wife, Vu, an engineer, came to the United States from Vietnam with her family when she was just eight, and she grew up being taught that Vietnamese food is always made a certain way — and that no variations are acceptable. It’s a rule she never adopted. The couple, who met in high school and have been married 21 years, home-schooled their kids, and when the children wanted to go into business together, Larry and Vu encouraged them, making Manna from Heaven a reality.” — Article excerpt from http://eatdrinkdenver.com/2012/02/profile-manna-from-heaven/

In keeping with its second-place survey ranking for microbrews, Denver has cultivated a number of beer-centric restaurants—such as Euclid Hall and Cheeky Monk—where the menu is geared toward the appropriate pairings with craft beers. Food trucks have also multiplied here, with options such as Manna from Heaven and the all-too-tempting Big Fat Cupcake Truck.

 Mobile Food Trucks in Denver: Reflecting the Mile High City’s Worldly Reputation

JULY 27, 2011 by Jim Brown

Manna From Heaven Visit the Manna From Heaven website, and you’ll find there’s a definite spiritual flavor beyond the name of the mobile food truck. Open only since June 2011, Manna From Heaven has already made a name for itself, serving up distinctive beef, chicken, pork and veggie entrees with a decidedly Vietnamese twist. Their truck is impressive: a double-door fridge, six-burner stove, convection oven, 36-inch flat-top grill and a 400-pound ice-storage bin. Try the Banh Mi, with pickled daikon/carrots, soy sprouts, herb blends, and other seasonal vegetables topped in Manna’s signature Mayo/Sriracha sauce. — Click title to view complete article.

“Manna from Heaven, a Vietnamese food truck, made its debut this weekend — and I nearly wept with joy after sinking my teeth into the bánh mì, available with grilled chicken, pork or beef. Gobsmacked with fresh vegetables and herbs, spicy with Sriracha sauce and smeared with a cucumber relish, it was, in a word, stellar.” — Click title to view complete article.

 

 

 

DENVER STREET FOOD: Manna From Heaven Attempts Banh Mi: NAILS IT!

JUNE 7, 2011 by Shelly

“I consider myself a bit of a banh mi junky, if not a downright afficionado. Vu, the master chef on board the Manna truck, and her partner and husband, Larry know how to take this classic Vietnamese sandwich and give it a good, loving twist. The veggies – zukes, mushrooms, and more – were perfectly grilled, awesomely seasoned, and god bless ‘em they left out the eggplant just for me. Their version of the traditional carrot/daikon relish was perfectly tangy, the amount of cilantro also perfect. Not only that, but these folks have tofu on board and they’re not afraid to use it – and they use it well! Of course, a selection of meaty goodness is also available for the omnivores in the crowd. I know that The Steamin’ Demon’s banh mi has an army of die hard fans, but I could never get used to the tempeh bacon they use. This, though, is a banh mi I could eat every day. It will be a challenge to move on to another truck next time, but I’ll try my hardest. Larry, Vu, I’ll be seeing you. A lot.” — Complete article excerpt from http://www.denverstreetfood.com/2011/06/welcome-back-civic-center-eats-weve-missed-you/
