Today might be the last day of food truck weather in Toronto this year. It’s been warm and sunny for the past few, but the temperature’s gonna drop, it’s supposed to rain, and I’m not sure how long I wanna be waiting outside for poutine in the cold (although I have done it before, bro). So it’s high time to hit up a local institution for maybe the last time in 2017, son!
Now, this place doesn’t even have a name, but it’s been setting up shop outside Nathan Phillips Square for the past 20+ years. There are actually two food trucks that usually park side-by-side…you’ll know this one by the big sign for “monster” chili fries. But why have chili fries when you can have poutine, bro???
Now, I know you’re thinking how could poutine from a food truck possibly be legit? So, let’s break it down. The fries are hot ‘n crispy, the curds are chunkalicious, and the sauce is on point. So many places put beef gravy on poutine, but if this ain’t d’la vraie sauce en canne, then it’s pretty damn close. And it’s only $6.50 for a large–you won’t get that kinda deal at Smoke’s, son! Of course, in this case, you gotta BYOM: Bring Your Own Meat, bro!
