Like you, we've really been enjoying watching Halifax's street food scene explode with creative flavours, colourful trucks and roving entrepreneurs over the past couple of years. We've also enjoyed adding more delicious things to our Must-Try list, and then trying all of them. Repeatedly.
Because there's no better time than summer to eat outdoors, we've decided to throw a party to celebrate the city's mobile eateries—from those who paved the way to the newest of newbies— gathering as many of them as we can into one spot so that for one evening you won't have to worry about tracking down your dinner, because we've done it for you. And then we can all picnic together.
Here's how it goes. On Thursday, July 31 all of the trucks, trailers and carts you'll find listed below will get together at the Museum of Natural History (1747 Summer Street) from 4-8pm for the Halifax Food Truck Party and for your dining pleasure. There is a $2 cover charge, because what else is free in life (other than The Best Weekly Newspaper Ever AKA The Coast)? But for real, $2 gets you into the food bonanza, where there'll be summer jams from CKDU, Linus test rides with Cyclesmith, access to the museum and so many dining options. You can't even get a bus to Bedford for $2. Bring your own blankets, chairs, cutlery and appetite.
Here are the awesome eats to be had:
Hypercones Shaved Hawaiian Ice
Poppa Smoke’s Hoagies
The Food Wolf
Halifax Press Restaurant
The Firefly Feast
Ol’ School Donuts
Tin Pan Alley
MORTISCYCLE, The Edible Sideshow
Eats Mobile Inc.
My Three Cousins
