After a very busy couple of weeks, I was finally able to have a quiet date night with my love. Before going to the M.I.A. concert at the Metropolis, we wanted to check out the food festival going on in conjunction with the comedy festival, ‘Bouffons Montreal’.
Around 40 food trucks parked in a little area north-west of the quartier des spectacles, offering a variety of wide range of food, from hot dogs, grilled cheese and lobster, to dim sum and smoothies. For the longest time, I’ve been watching “Eat St.” on the food network, so it was quite exciting to finally be able to try real street food in my own city.
There were so many delicious choices, so we shared:
- lobster hot dog from ‘Lucilles’: it was really good!…and I don’t even like seafood!!
- meatballs with tomato sauce, parmesan, croutons and fresh basil leaves from ‘Meatball’
- Bacon grilled cheese sandwich from ‘P-A & Gargantua’ which was tasty but quite heavy
- Papaya hot-dog from ‘Chauds Dogs’ which was not as fruity as I thought it would be
I had such a fun time and there are still so many food trucks that I want to try that I am going to try and go again before the end of the festival on July 27.
