It seems like every metropolitan city in North America has adapted the food truck frenzy. Great for business districts where you pretty much only have the same food court choices as your local mall. Toronto has seemed to miss the boat on this trend...mostly because of City Hall red tape, but slowly..the food trucks are coming out! And last week...I chased them down over 3 days! Worth it!! Now the line-ups were long...most likely because Torontonians have been waiting for a long time for these!! Our only option until this summer has been hot dogs (aka Street Meat).
DAY 1: Per Se Mobile and Hogtown Smoke, Location: Bay and Front Streets
The line up for Hogtown Smoke was insanely long...
DAY 2: Caplansky's Deli and The Toasted Tangerine (Same Location)
This Deli truck had a long slow moving line-up...I was in a rush so I was not able to wait in the line (however the Maple Bacon Doughnuts they had on the Menu were tempting)
DAY 3: Caplansky's Deli and some other truck that was sold out of everything
I ended up getting the pulled pork slider (which was the same size as a normal pulled pork sandwich!) with a side of fries. The pulled pork was fantastic as was the coleslaw on top. Fries were crispy and delish!
In conclusion..the Toronto Food Truck seen is still very young...but in my opinion has made a fantastic start!!! I can't wait to try out some of the new trucks that will be introduced over the next couple months as well as re-visit some of these great ones already out there!!
