Heads up foodies in Ontario & Quebec! Destination Toronto has a food truck tour, and it’s about to hit cities to give out some free delicious eats!
According to Destination Toronto, this one-of-a-kind food experience will feature never-created-before menu items developed by Chef Craig Wong of Patois Toronto and Bar Mignonette. They add that each dish is inspired by an iconic Toronto neighbourhood and features Wong’s signature fusion of flavours.
The food truck tour kicks off on July 11, with stops planned in Ottawa, Montreal, and Kingston. Menu items are complimentary, so be sure to arrive early!
“I’m so excited to be sharing, through food, the things that make up the city that I love so much. For this menu, I took it neighbourhood by neighbourhood, creating a lineup of dishes that have never been served this way before,” said Chef Craig Wong.
Born and raised in Scarborough, Chef Wong’s family lived in Jamaica for more than three generations, and in 2014, he opened Patois Toronto. In 2020, he opened Bar Mignonette, a seafood wine bar.
“Toronto’s authentic diversity of tastes driven by our talented culinary community is a must experience part of our city,” said Scott Beck, President & CEO of Destination Toronto, adding that having this Toronto tasting menu to visit three major cities in Ontario and Quebec “will showcase firsthand our multicultural culinary community, enticing more foodies to travel to Toronto this summer.”
