Edmonton’s food scene has taken to the roving the streets, hawking artisan sandwiches, waffles, and snacks to the masses. These creative chefs with their tasty mobile eateries and food truck champions Sharon and Mack have revolutionized our city’s eating options. Three local food trucks – The Act, Drift & Molly’s Eats – are putting Edmonton in the spotlight with an appearance on the hit TV show Eat Street. Help make their TV debuts a success by joining the tasty party.
Ready to explore the food truck scene? Here’s what you need to know:
- What the Truck?! is a website dedicate solely to Edmonton’s food truck extravaganzas. It’s your best source for food truck info.
- Food trucks are constantly on the move. You need to keep them on your radar. The easiest way is to follow them on Twitter (here are all the Twitter handles).
- Stay tuned for What the Truck?! events and Truck Stops (smaller events featuring no more than five trucks). These events are your best chance to try food from many trucks. The next event takes place this Thursday Friday, August 3 on Victoria Promenade (all the details here).
- Avenue Magazine put together a great Edmonton Food Truck Guide.
Oh wait… there’s more mobile food happenings.
When we're not eating from food trucks, we’re probably on a food crawl. Yup, take your thoughts of a ‘pub crawl’ and apply to food: eat, walk to different restaurant, eat, change venues, repeat. Dishcrawl has been offering tasty food crawls in Old Strathcona, downtown and 124 Street. The North Edge Business Association is offering ‘Around the World in 80 Bites’, an ethnic food crawl at eateries Acajutla (El Salvador), Eritrea (African) and Caffe Sorrentino (Italian).
Let's motor and eat up in streets.
