Food trucks in Calgary
- Davelina May 10, 2011 11:13 AM
Are there any food trucks in Calgary? I'd like to start one, and want to research this area first.
Any suggestions/tips/leads are welcome!
Stephen Avenue has food carts/trailers (not trucks) when the weather is nice, e.g. the wood-fired pizza place that was there last year. I don't know if that will get you any closer to the answer you want, but mobile food does exist here in some form.
The only one I know of is Mario's http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/698424 aside from the ones that go to construction sites. I would recommend starting with finding out health department requirements and they might be able to tell you who has permits. http://www.calgaryhealthregion.ca/pub...
In the summer there's "The Fry Guy" in Dover/Forest Lawn. 36 st and 26 ave SE.
Rocky's burger bus, Manchester Road? just a few blocks east of Blackfoot trail on the street between Shaw GMC and Mary Brown's.
The was a burger van by the Aero Space museum on McKnight but have not seen it for a while. That seems like a good spot to me.
re: The Gut
Not necessarily a full-on food truck, but the hotdog guy at the Southland & MacLeod appears to have upgraded to a larger trailer style setup. IIRC the trailer is painted with a "Fry Guy" logo, but I'm pretty sure it's the same guy who has been there before because he is still selling the Bulgarian sausage (which is AWESOME!)
