The food at the ACC in Toronto about to get a lot better

If you're a Leafs or Raptors fan, chances are you'll make it to the Air Canada Centre at least once during the 2016-2017 season. And when you're there, you'll likely treat yourself to some over-priced eats. But instead of snacking on mass-produced junk food, you'll soon be able to grab a bite from an indie outlet.

That's right, Matt Basile (the chef behind the Fidel Gastro's food truck and Lisa Marie) will be working with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment to elevate the food options at the ACC.

"Fidel Gastro/Matt Basile is the first featured chef at one of our new stands called Sixn Kitchn," says an MLSE spokesperson. And the plan is to feature various Toronto chefs at this stall near Gate One.

Sixn Kitchn might launch next month in time for the NHL's World Cup of Hockey. But a more realistic date is October 15, the Leafs' home opener.

While Basille is still finalizing the menu, you can expect to see Fidel Gastro favourites like pad thai fries on the docket.
