Food trucks are a staple of summer dining and fortunately for Midvale residents, they don’t have to venture far. On Fridays, from 5-8:30 p.m. a variety of food trucks are parked in front of Midvale City Hall, 7505 S. Holden St. Often, there is live music from local artists to liven up the scene. 

The variety of food includes baklava, Philly cheesesteaks, tacos and barbecue.  

One truck recently serving food was Mahmoud and Safaa’s Waterwheel Kitchen food truck. They offer a variety of foods from Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt. Mahmoud has a passion for food and cooking and is a skilled chef. Along with his wife and son, they have traveled through Salt Lake County introducing diners to such dishes as kebsa, a mixed rice dish; sambusa, a triangle-shaped stuffed pastry; and some of the best baklava around. 

Another food truck parked at City Hall was Sugar Stop. They offer flavored sodas and shaved ice. These food truck entrepreneurs have been working in the business for three years and travel across Salt Lake, Davis, and Weber counties. Two of the workers, Catie and Shelby, started working in this food truck because their friend started the business and they wanted to join in on the fun. They’re currently based out of Ogden. 

Oftentimes Midvale Mayor Marcus Stevenson can be found at the food trucks after work chatting with coworkers and Midvale residents alike. λ
