40 photos from Hamilton's massive food truck festival

Posted by Liora Ipsum / May 5, 2014

sew hungryThe SEW Hungry food truck festival took over politely imposed itself on Hamilton's Ottawa St. this past Friday, bringing together almost 35 food trucks from across Southern Ontario (including a number of familiar faces from Toronto). Stretched along a major street, the festival didn't even shut down car traffic - and yet, somehow, this celebration of street food was one of the most jovial and civilized food truck rallies I've ever attended.

Food was great but the event would have been 10x better if they just shut down Ottawa St from vehicle traffic. Between the huge lines, small sidewalks and just a ton of people, dogs, bikes and babies there was no room to fully take everything in.

Burger and fries, burgers and fries. When I lived in Europe, that's what they told me: "You North Americans only eat burgers and fries." I would say, "Nah, it's not true. That's a just stereotype. Please don't generalise." But now I see that it's painfully correct.

I was appalled at the lack of gloves used at this festival. I'm afraid of MRSA and Hepatitis C from the people who work in food service, especially those who are from Hamilton.

Perhaps you didn't stop by Bistro Tour, because we do NOT sell burgers or fries. In fact, we don't have a grill or a deep fryer on our truck. You might be pleasantly surprised by what we offer. We only serve healthy gourmet food prepared by an actual chef.

We appreciate your comments but we agree with Bistro Tour. The Great British Bake make everything from scratch using real ingredients and local suppliers. We have NEVER used a fryer on our truck. Everything we make is based on recipes handed down over the generations, is created with love and care and we bake our products.

Wow Bistro Tour, cocky much? I had food from you guys and it was complete tasteless crap, so I guess the "actual real chef" you had working is a complete idiot. And by your shitty cocky attitude its quite clear you wont go far.

Avoid.

Wow Bistro bitch that is a bit harsh! All Bistro Tour was explaining what they have to offer. The chef is a red seal chef and put a lot of love and hard work into his menu. I think you need to chill and consider the feelings of other people. The menu on the Bistro Tour is far from tasteless.
