    1. re: radiopolitic

      On CBC radio, they said Victoria Day weekend.

      1. Good to know--though I really want to see empanadas and enchiladas. I wonder if the Biryani will include a veg version. Most of the above sound pretty meaty (with the exception of the kimchi which isn't one of my faves).

        1. Woo! This list is not as lame as I thought it would be.
          Bring on the takoyaki, martabak, es cendol, and crepes!

          1. i have a bit of concern for how widely spread out they are and i know the world doesn't revolve around downtown but i think that this might backfire just based on location and interest will be minimized.

            new york doesn't seem to have as many carts en masse as philadelphia, but i think there is a method to the madness they have over there with so many carts all within spitting distance of each other.
