ethnically diverse street food comes to Toronto
Toronto a la Cart street food program has announced the successful applicants -
Here's the list -
The new vendors will be at the following locations:
Location - Ethnic Origin of Food - Sample Menu Item
Mel Lastman Square - Thai - Pad Thai with fresh rolls
Metro Hall - Afghani/Central Asian - Chapli kebabs
Nathan Phillips Square - Central Asian/Persian - Biryani
Nathan Philips Square - Greek - Souvlaki
Queen’s Park - Middle Eastern - Chicken/beef kebab wraps
Roundhouse Park - Eritrean - Injera
Yonge and Eglinton - Korean - Bulgogi with seasonal kimchi
Yonge and St. Clair - Caribfusion - Jerk chicken
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).
Woo! This list is not as lame as I thought it would be.
Bring on the takoyaki, martabak, es cendol, and crepes!
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.
