We’ve all been out on a fun outing with the family when the question of lunch arises. You feel like you might cry if you have to face pizza or a chicken nugget meal one more time. That’s when we pat ourselves on the backs for having landed in Toronto, home to some of the finest food trucks on the continent and perfect for gourmet grab-and-go grub.
But how do you locate said trucks in this vast metropolis? Hipsters know, but for everyone else there is the Toronto Food Trucks website and app. You’ll find out which food trucks are in the city, when they’re open and where they’ll be’so you can do some planning. Links to Twitter and Facebook pages often reveal the daily menu.
Here’s a taste of some of the trucks you’ll find cruising the city:
The granddaddy of all food trucks is Fidel Gastro’s. Best for bigger kids with bigger appetites, these offerings are a huge food experience. FG’s is famous for Sgt. Slaughter, a BBQ pulled pork sandwich with guacamole cream and crushed tortilla chips. Try the Sloppy Jose, featuring cola-braised brisket with home-style baked beans’because you can! (Tell me more)
Kids will gobble down their fish when presented with Captain Crunch coated fish tacos. They’ll be equally enamoured with the banana nutella ‘bomb’ dessert, and you’ll be scribbling down the dudes’ digits as potential caterers for your next grown-up party, too. (Tell me more)
If you’re still hungry, here are more Toronto Food Trucks to eat at with your family this summer.
