So last summer, I spent a buncha time over at Front Street Foods, this pop-up street food market at York and Adelaide. Now they’re back till the end of July, which a much better name: Adelaide Eats, son! (I would put that on a t-shirt!) A lot of the familiar cast of characters has returned–you’ve got Tacos 101, you’ve got Wahlburgers, you’ve even got a pop-up Momofuku stand–but there’s a couple new faces as well, like this funky little place called District 28.
This local Leslieville joint is serving up bowls and sammies, but at Adelaide Eats, they’ve got this off-menu delicacy…say hello to my little friend buttermilk fried chicken!!!!
Now, you may be wondering how it got to be so red. Turns out they’ve got this tangy Tahitian treat BBQ sauce that they smother it in. And then they douse it with chipotle maple aioli, and throw down a crunchy dill pickle mango slaw on top. Dude, it’s like a Culinary Summerslam in Flavourtown, son! Did I mention it’s all on a brioche bun??? Boomshakalaka!
