Here is an add-on to the previous Street Food post. I was happy to find something in Ontario to share. We visited Prince Edward County for Maplefest yesterday. One of the stops was the Black River Cheese Company and parked outside was the Buddha Dog Airstream Trailer. This pretty much sums up what streetfood should be all about . Yes they have great looking logo and a really cool trailer and Tshirts, but they also bring together the community and source their products from the best local suppliers. Here’s the chalkboard out front to give you an idea:
Of course we had to have one: half the little dog had chunks of Black River’s Maple Cheddar on it and the other half had this really delightful maple squash sauce. We came to the cart at the very end of the day so sadly missed the specially made Maple Dogs (sold out) but the ‘regular’ dog on the homemade bun was really fantastic. Smaller than your average Toronto street meat by a lot, but all natural ingredients didn’t leave me with a stomach ache (like hotdogs usually do) and if you you’re hungry, buy a few, then you get to taste more types of sauce and toppings!.
They also have a location on Roncesvalles Avenue in Toronto and will soon be opening another in Collingwood…apré ski dog?? sounds good to me.
