    We got there early and at the time there were only Gorilla Cheese, Toasted Tangerine, El Gastrónomo Vagabundo and Caplansky's. I don't know if the other two made it.

    We got food from the first three above. At Gorilla Cheese the lumberjack sandwich, at Toasted Tangerine the pulled chicken sliders and toasted ravioli and at EGV the Tom Yum soup. Our favourite was the ravioli followed by a tie between the two sandwiches and at a very far distant finishing, the soup.

    The toasted raviloi was very tasty. Good sized ravioli's. Crispy. The cheese filling was good. Would loved to have had some bacon in there. The marinara sauce was very nice. The lumberjack was good, well made though the savoury-sweet combination of the cheese, bacon, apple slices and maple syrup didn't work for me. The GF thought the combo was fine. The chicken slider was good though would have liked a little more sauce. The GF had the soup and thought it was weak compared to Khao San Road's version. Plus she thought it had the worst price for what you get compared to everything else.

    All-in-all, a good visit. After seeing all those Eat St episodes I hope Toronto is on the verge of equally what I've seen on the show. I'm still hoping to see some copycat sandwiches like the grilled cheese with mac & cheese, pulled pork and caramelized onions from the Grilled Cheese truck in LA.

      I was there later, and did see Cupcake Dinner. Unfortunately, it was cold and I had to get to a meeting, so after waiting 20 minutes in line at Toasted Tangerine (and seeing many hungry people waiting in line for their orders), I gave up. I hope that it comes back so I can try again... very close to my office.

        The lines were moving VERY slowly. If Toronto would just get its act together, and allow these places to operate all the time, all over, we wouldn't have to have rinky-dink food truck "festivals"..

        if i had to guess, it would be the usual suspects:

        Gorilla Cheese
        Caplansky's
        Smoke's Poutine

        not a bad list of usual suspects, tho

            Great news!
            The only negative is the waiting in line
