Getta Fetta sandwich from 4 Wheel Kitchen

Maybe it was the name: 4 Wheel Kitchen. Nah, it was the menu of healthy-sounding sandwiches that sent me to the third truck in a line of several credible choices on a recent Food Truck Friday at Cathedral Square Park.

You might remember the story of this particular truck. Chicagoan Linda Knibbs ordered a food truck to use in her own city, but when faced with a hefty delay in doing business on Chicago streets, she directed the truck north. Her son, Joe Brady, runs the day-to-day operation of the truck, delivering on a menu of three sandwiches, two unusual side dishes and Peaches Romanoff for dessert.

The Kitchen tweets its location each day, but you can count on it following the crowd to places such as Schlitz Park for Takeout Tuesdays or Cathedral Square Park on a Friday.

We tried the Getta Fetta Sandwich because it sounded light enough to eat in the heat and humidity. It layers spinach, feta cheese, bell pepper, onion, zucchini and summer squash between two layers of whole-wheat bread. There’s a splash of balsamic vinaigrette on the ingredients, but not enough to overpower the freshness of the vegetables.

Nothing on the menu so far contains meat. The burger is of the black-bean variety, and the Italian grilled sandwich is made with heirloom tomato, low-fat mozzarella cheese and pesto sauce.

Sandwiches are all $7. Sides include sweet potato fries ($3) or two kinds of vegetable pierogi ($4). Next time I’m trying the Peaches Romanoff ($4) – grilled peaches and brown sugar topped with a caramel sauce.
