5 types of food trucks we want to see in Toronto

Already this year we have seen the introduction of two types of trucks we've never seen before - a lasagna truck, and a stuffed chicken wing one is about to launch. But what else is Toronto missing?

Here are five types of food trucks I hope to see hit the streets of Toronto.

Sushi
Yes, it's true. Toronto doesn't have a sushi food truck roaming the streets. Winnipeg has Waki Temaki, so why can't we have sushi available curbside? To any inspiring truck owners out there: think about bringing this to the 6ix.

Vegan
Time after time I go out for a food truck lunch with my vegan friends and as they take a look at the menu board, they quickly learn there's nothing for them to eat. I've witnessed vegan trucks in other cities but nothing of the sort here. Toronto is not shy to vegan eats, but when it comes to mobile offerings we're seriously lacking.

Pierogi
Eastern European pierogi trucks have made it big in cities like Victoria, Winnipeg and Calgary. Unfortunately these little morsels of deliciousness have yet to surface here. Fingers crossed this summer someone changes all that.

Meat Pies
It's only a matter of time before a meat pie truck lands in Toronto. As proven by Edmonton's Meat Street Pies and Vancouver's Aussie Pie Guy, these savoury pastries make the perfect street food. They are handheld, extremely filling, and easy to chow down on the go.

Bagels
This past summer Toronto got its first breakfast food truck. If you can get eggs benny on the city's streets, why not bagels? Montreal has its fill of bagels and smear thanks to St-Viateur Bagel, so here's hoping Toronto gets a copycat.

What type of food trucks do you want to see hit the streets of Toronto this summer? Let us know in the comments.
