Pickering Food Truck Festival

My first real food truck experience and it did not disappoint!  I was expecting maybe 5 trucks maximum but boy was I in for a surprise when I saw lineup after lineup of trucks as well as names I recognized either from food network, Instagram or even individuals I've followed since the beginning of their journey, like MENU truck! Yay!

Hoping to be able to try their fried rice balls next time. Everyone seems to have a set menu that changes depending on the day. There was a lot of Pokemon so I went with their Pokeballs and they did not disappoint! We got their pulled duck Poutine too, with crackle, can't go wrong with that!

The chimneys were probably our favourite, and a bit hit among everyone there. We went early so no lines but I kept hearing about the long lineups later in the day.

A yummy combo we created on our own was Wickedly Sinful's #SmokeyMapleButterFries then grabbing a berry Chimney and just dipping the buttery, smokey, salty fries in ice cream and going back and forth between the two. Yep, we're a little kookie that way :D   It was my husband's idea to try the fries, I don't know if I would have been drawn to them otherwise. Good call, Ben!

Food wise we got Untamed Chef's  #thefreshprincecheesesteak and Koi Gourmet Inc - Fried chicken on a sort of Paratha or green onion Pancake! Delicious!

Speaking of Paratha, is it the new food trend or something? I saw it almost all throughout, being served up by many trucks in different ways. How cool is that?!

So all in all there was lots of Mexican/Latin/Tacos... your "trendy trucks", many of them serving up stuff with an asian/Korean flare and then gourmet trucks, poutine, lots and lots of Poutine to choose from, PORK... everywhere and we stayed clear of it, a couple of vegetarian options and halal (need more halal!) and your standard fair/carnival treats.

We can't wait for next year!
