Street Food

Toronto Street Treats happened earlier today from noon to 2pm @ Nathan Phillips Square .. so I went and checked it out. They had little tents for the participating restaurants to cook/sell their food/samples ranging from $1 to $6. I was looking for Cava — who supposedly had Florentine Tripe Stew for $2 — but I couldn’t find it! Hmmm!
There were LOTS of people lining up to try the food .. I didn’t even try lining up .. 😛

Hmm .. people!

These guys in the next pic had a better idea though .. rather than lining up for a long time, spending $3 for a sample dish, they spent the $3 to get a sausage. I would’ve done the same thing (I didn’t since I brought lunch), and yes I know, I know, it’s a different kind of food and experience and stuff (hehe):

Hot Dog Truck

I love street food (and soon Toronto will have more street food than just hotdogs and sausages — or so I heard). In Indonesia we have lots of street vendors with “shops” on the side of the street (literally) or going around pushing/pulling/carrying their carts/stuff or on a bike (we just call/stop them in front of our house if we want to buy the food :)) .. and there are some really good ones (nasi goreng kambing, nasi goreng pete, siomai, singkong, combro, bubur ayam, martabak, etc — Gosh, now I’m hungry). One note though, if you’re a picky eater, not adventurous in eating, or have a weak stomach, don’t try it. 😛 For me, I love it. 😉

    Whoa, I’ve never tried balut – duck’s egg with the chick still inside … hmm .. that could be interesting, but on the other hand, I’m not sure – baby ducks are so cute …
    I love chicken feet!! 😀

    Trust me… you wouldn’t want to eat a balut once you see it. Like an embryo from… the movie ALIENS… except scarier. O_O
