People of Halifax, summer is coming; I promise. During our cold Canadian winters, those warm summer months can feel like a blurry dream we all want to fall back into. Luckily, we’ve almost made it out the other end and summer is just around the corner. There’s nothing like sitting under the sun, breathing in the ocean air, and enjoying some local food and beverage that may not be the healthiest but is definitely the tastiest.
One of my favourite things about summer is enjoying delicious and unique meals purchased from our local food trucks. We’re pretty lucky in the way that Halifax has some outstanding food trucks with a wide range of dishes to take advantage of when we’ve all let go of the myth that we’ll be maintaining any sort of beach body. So, to get you all drooling over meals you’ll be eating in the future, here’s a round-up of Halifax’s best food trucks that you’ll want to keep in mind this summer!
Tin Pan Alley
Here you will find an outstanding combination of Dutch fires and creative classics from around the world. Time Pan Alley serves up mouth-watering, crunchy fries covered in a number of different incidents to suit your fancy. Personally, I believe their Butter Chicken Fries to be the best on the menu, and maybe the best on any menu because they’re just that good. They have a wonderful team of energetic staff, a menu you just can’t go wrong with, unique flavours you’ll be drooling over all winter.
Burgers, Sandwiches, Sliders, Burritos, Tacos, and more. Yep, this menu is seriously stacked and you should probably be taking advantage of it as soon as possible! You can find this awesome food truck catering events or just cruising around selling hungry people some next-level eats. Their entire menu is made up of comfort food you’ll want to experience again and again. Head to their website to track them down, and go fill up on some of the summer’s best meals.
