Food Truck Eats

When I heard about the second part of the Food Truck Eats taking place at the Distillery district, I jumped at the chance to partake in the festivities (and took my mom with me)!  For those who aren't familiar with the event, the Food Truck Eats gives foodies a chance to sample some of the yummy eats from various Ontario food trucks (restaurants on wheels!). But this is not your ordinary fast food you get from a typical food truck, these trucks offer some neat twists on old favourites (i.e.: grilled cheese with ham and slices of granny apples).

I was naive to think that it would be a calm, relaxing stroll around the Distillery, sampling different types of food with no hassle. Boy, was I wrong! Thankfully, I read an article about how to prepare for the day, and as you can see from the first photo, I had to pack some "gear" for the event. When we got there, it was a zoo! Long lineups, big crowds, and lots of trucks! But with the overwhelming smell of delicious food surrounding us, our only concern was: Where do we start?

    Also, it might please Grace to know that Juha asked "Is that Jackie?" re: last picture. He was a little far from the screen but tell her she still looks awesome ;)
