Street life is the pulse of a city. It's part of the character and the personality. Living in Bangkok has made me wonder why would some cities completely ban street food instead of just regulate it. Eating in the street, at a low cost, on the go, with friends, makes for great city living if you ask me.
I was reading this week that Montreal might be getting its own street food in the near future, for the first time since the 1940s. Great news! One of the most famous names in the Montreal culinary world, Normand Laprise, spoke publicly in favor of it. We are making progress...
Montreal has so many little quirks, and it'll finally add this one to the list. Poutine and gourmet sandwiches on the go? Yes, please. Smoked meat at the park? Definitely.
Grumman 78 is a Montreal taco truck that was never able to operate out of the actual truck, due to city regulations (except for special events, check them out at Piknik Electronik this summer). They serve their food at various locations. But this might all change soon...!
Do you have street food in your city? What do you normally get?
