A look at the eats and treats of our city’s latest dining trend

Food trucks have become mainstream since the Food Network began airing shows like Eat St. and The Great Food Truck Race. 

Eight food trucks have rolled into Calgary, each serving its own style of food.

Perogy Boyz serves up Eastern European inspired street food, and yes they have perogies.

Fries and Dolls has what can only be called gourmet fries served in either a ‘B’ cup or a ‘D’ cup.

BlamWich! is filling Calgarians’ bellies with big ol’ sandwiches, including one with maple cured and Canadian bacon, with a bacon aioli spread.

Los Compadres, means Calgary finally has a taco truck, and it’s about darn time.

JoJo’s BBQ, is your answer if you have a hankerin’ for a pulled pork sandwich. The truck is run by a self confessed, “rocker chick.”

Pimento’s Mobile Pizzeria offers gourmet pizzas, whether personal size or for sharing.

Alley Burger offers reasonably priced burgers. Once served out the back door of the restaurant, CharCut, these deli burgers are now reaching a much bigger audience.

Food trucks in the winter

Some food lovers may wonder about the viability of the food truck scene in sub-zero temperatures. Lani Buchanan, owner of Fries and Dolls, says Chicago is already proving it’s possible. “Chicago has brutal winters and their food truck scene is great year-round. I don’t see why ours can’t do it too.”

Want to eat at one of these trucks and don’t know how to find them? You can either check their webpages, but the best way is to follow them on Twitter where they tweet their locations daily.
