Street Food Finally Gets More Interesting


First things first: I love Toronto's street meat. Along with smog and endless festivals, the waft of BBQ meat snaking down the streets is one of those signs that summer has arrived in this city. Having said that, there's far too much diversity in Toronto for our sidewalks not to run thick with the smells of samosas, soups, and all other manner of delicious ersatz meals.

Apparently, Provincial Health Minister George Smitherman is due to announce today that the strict health laws that forbid anything other than pre-cooked sausages and hot dogs from being served on the streets will finally be relaxed. Although it may take a while for vendors to actually begin rolling out the new eats, it's good to know a bit of variety is finally coming our way. The drunken stumble to bed after a long night just got a whole lot more delicious.
