Food Truck Festival Richmond Hill 2016

Standard

They had a few food truck festival around the GTA this summer so I decided to check out the one in Richmond Hill. It was at Richmond Green which is a great venue. There were quite a few trucks and different types of food to choose from but nothing really stood out which was disappointing.

steak-poutine

This Steak Poutine was the highlight of the night. The fries were freshly fried and not starchy, the potatoes stay together and has a smooth texture. There was a good helping of meat and the melted cheese was the yummy glue that kept everything together.

purple-lemonade

This was supposed to be their Purple Lemonade but as you can see, it’s blue…

I was pretty disappointed not just by the colour but this was just blue Kool Aid. I didn’t even really taste the lemon…

pork-tacos

These Pork Tacos were pretty good but not the best I’ve had. The shells were cold and not as soft as I would’ve liked. There was also too much sauce so when I picked one up, it was all over my hand. The meat wasn’t dry at least.

strawberries-and-cream-funnel-cake

Ah, the best part, dessert! Me and my boyfriend shared this Strawberries and Cream Funnel Cake. I haven’t had a funnel cake in ages and since I had someone to share with, it was a no brainer! It was fresh like everything else and I like how they didn’t overflow the strawberry sauce. It could’ve had more ice cream though :p.

This intrigued me because it was a food truck festival but I thought it would have more interesting food. They had quite a bit of options but just your standard food trucks, nothing new and exciting. Maybe if I went to the Toronto one instead but I wanted to avoid a large crowd. I’ll know for next year!
