In honour of Montreal finally getting with the times and allowing some food trucks to roll out onto city streets this summer, we thought it was high time we share our food truck wish list with the rest of you. Here you go. You’re welcome.
The Brunch Truck
Yep, we want it. Forget waiting in line for an hour to sit at a teeny tiny table in a packed restaurant on a hot summer day. We want to get some delicious potatoes and a benny from a truck and then go sit in a nice park somewhere and eat it. An added bonus here is that no one will think it’s weird when we lie down and sleep our breakfasts (and the booze still lingering in our systems from last night), off.
The Meat on a Stick Truck
Anyone who’s ever been to an Asian country will agree; meat on a stick is THE BEST. Why? Fuck if we know, it just is.
The Soup Truck
So this is a bit of a tricky one because the food trucks won’t likely be open year-round and soup is best when it’s cold out. However, soup is also less fattening than most other foods and often chock-full of veggies (kind of like liquid salad, but yummier), which is the kind of shit you want to eat in the summertime. Also, soup is delicious. Not grosspacho though, that shit is just wrong.
The Booze Truck
Yeah, yeah, we know, it’ll never happen. But so what? This is our wish list and we’ll put whatever the hell we want on it. Don’t like it? Go make your own goddam list asshole! Jeez.
Anyway, we’d like a booze food truck. One where you can get all kinds of bevvies to wet your parched liver, but where the food is also all boozy…think beer battered chicken with bourbon-gravied poutine and kahlua cheesecake for dessert. Yum.
The Bacon Truck
Obviously this truck will make so much money and everyone will love it. Bacon is good with everything. Seriously though, we dare you to think up one single thing that wouldn’t be good with bacon. Even if you can, you’re wrong.
The Tartare Truck
This one was editor Erin Hogg’s idea. Personally, I’m not sold on it. Basically, everything would be raw meat. The fun here is that it would kind of be like playing Rushian roulette…but with FOOD! Maybe you’ll be in agonizing pain for hours, shitting your brains out while puking in a garbage can at the same time, but also maybe not! We think this truck might appeal to really macho dudes and all those weirdos who only eat raw foods. Rawatarians? Rawdies? Rawstafarians? Rawnivores? Whatever.
The Non-Anonymous Meat truck
At this truck, your burger would come with a bio. You would know your dinner’s name, where it grew up, who its parents were, what kind of music it was into, the name of its first love and who it voted for in the last election. Personally, we’d have no problem chowing down on some stupid jerk chicken who voted for Harper. ‘Cause that guy sucks balls.
