Gone are the days of street meat and greasy truck fries (unless you like these and they do still exist) Throughout the streets of Toronto a rotating cast of food trucks show up every weekday. The options include fish tacos, crab and lobster rolls, Southern barbecue, Jewish brisket sandwiches, fried calamari pitas, and kale and arugula salads.

The best way to locate the trucks is via @ontfoodtrucks on Twitter, follow them individually or try http://torontofoodtrucks.ca.

Featured on the Toronto Food Trucks blog is the latest British addition, The Feisty Jack.
“After a busy summer, things don’t seem to be slowing down for Toronto’s growing food truck scene even with colder weather approaching. The newest kid on the food truck block is The Feisty Jack, a truck dedicated to traditional and modern takes on classic British food. Owner William Randolph grew up in the food business in London spending time in family run pubs and later going on to formally train as a chef. (http://266007333636044962.weebly.com)
