Sew Delicious – 5 Tasty Finds at Hamilton’s Food Truck Rally

Think food trucks just serve hot dogs and hamburgers? At Sew Hungry, Hamilton’s Food Truck Rally they serve up all that and more! From poutine to pulled pork parfaits, to banana and Nutella grilled sandwiches, there was an explosive combination of taste experiences on Hamilton’s Ottawa Street. Here’s a few reasons you should add Sew Hungry to your travel to-do list.

1. The famous Pulled Pork Parfait

Ottawa Street was buzzing about Hank Daddy’s Barbeque pulled pork parfait – 9 layers of pulled pork and mashed potatoes with BBQ sauce, all served in a parfait glass. The line-up said it all! Everyone wanted to try this culinary creation.

Well-known in Hamilton as Canada’s first grilled cheese truck, Gorilla Cheese serves up a sandwich like no other! From the Hammer (Cheddar, Black-forest Ham, sliced Granny Smith Apples, Honey Mustard) to the Cheeky Monkey (a delicious dessert concoction of Nutella, banana and peanut butter) this is a lunch must.

I’m loving the rise of the food truck in southern Ontario. Much of the buzz is thanks to the Food Truck Eats festivals and meet-ups in various locations in the Greater Toronto Area. It’s nice to see Hamilton also getting involved. Where there is a Gorilla Cheese food truck, I’m there!
