Best Chip Truck in Toronto.

Alright, I was in Port Hope for easter weekend. Port hope's a little town about an hour east of Toronto for what it's worth. There was a chip truck there, and we stopped to grab some fries. It was in the parking lot of the liquidation world, bottom of Walton st, across from KFC.
I sprayed them with the malt-vinegar-spray-bottle deal, and threw some salt on them, and no sooner had I taken a bite than I knew I was in pure chip-truck heaven.
I've yet to stop thinking about how great they were. Yes, I know if I really wanted some I could just make the trip back there, and I totally intend on doing so. That's not the question though.
The question is whenever I don't feel like making the trip all the way there for some fries, where can I find the best chip truck fries in my home city? I live at Sheppard and Yonge, but I know there's no chip truck around here.
Great things have been said about the truck down in front of city hall, and I totally want to check it out, but is it really the best?
Good chip truck fries in my mind are a lot like a fatter version of New York Fries. They've got a great potatoe flavour, with good oil. Bonus points for skin-on, and extra bonus points for fresh cut. Also, they must taste awesome with malt vinegar. OH, and HUGE PORTIONS.
Good chip trucks...GO!
My favourite is the chip truck at Cherry Beach--it's a little-known fact that french fries have no calories if you eat them while walking the dog...
Don Juan's, featured in many a magazine and television show. He's a crazy Spaniard and is only around when the weather is good (spring-early fall) but man does he make a good fry and he's a trick to order from. All guys are "Hey Ugly" and all girls are "Hey Beatiful" he's good fun, super cheap and can't be beat. Front and John across from the CBC building. 277 Front is the address he's infront of Don Juan is on the truck. Everything else is just playing.
