Toronto about to get a late night food truck destination

Posted by Natalia Manzocco / July 11, 2014

King West eatsToronto just got its first food truck alley this week - now, it looks like the number is already set to double. The west side of the city is set to get its very own designated hot spot for mobile food vendors, dubbed King West Eats, with the first service set for this coming Monday.

The new alley will be set up at 7 Morrison St., near Adelaide and Brant, in a lot owned by Allied Properties. Space will be available for up to eight food trucks, seven days a week; eventually, the plan is to host lunch service set for 11am to 3:30pm, and then 4:30 to 11pm in the evenings. There's some talk service might extend to later in the evening on weekends.

Rancho Relaxo and Let's Be Frank are among the trucks set to get the ball rolling this Monday, with lunch service planned from 11am to 4pm. Other notable trucks participating include Curbalicious, Fidel Gastro's and Hogtown Smoke, just to name a few.

Full details and schedule on

For the record when I hear west end, I understand west of Yonge St. That's how its always been.

What are you new? Just here for a couple of years for college or university? West end, west of Yonge.

Are there any healthy food trucks in TO or just the artery cloggers?

Only the artery cloggers.

The west end would be Trinity Bellwoods/Parkdale or Roncie, what you are describing is within the downtown core, not west end.

West side of downtown there Gayle sweetheart.

To be fair, the article says "west side" not "west end". I don't think the author would argue that this is not in what is referred to as the west end. West side, on the other hand, is anything west of Yonge street.

I thought by 'late night' they meant from midnight onward, not 11pm, that's not late.
