Food trucks are common in St. Thomas, but are not overly popular with tourists since they tend to be far from touristed areas, and not too user-friendly for those unfamiliar with the local foods and lingo. However the "Rescue Me" food truck offers friendly service and a prime location not far from the Crown Bay cruise ship terminal. Sarah, the proprietor, cooks up a rotating menu of local favorites, from conch fritters to sweet potatoes to curried beef with peas and rice. Sides include fried plantains and mac & cheese. About $10 will buy you a combo plate with a little bit of everything. Oh and Sarah serves drinks too, so if you're actually not in a hurry to get anywhere, have a seat at the nearby picnic tables and nurse a rum and Coke for a while. At night the place stops serving food and turns into a little bar.
