Anyone who knows me knows I love food and that I can eat a lot of it. So much so, that a six foot, three inch, 240 pound man, aka my husband, has a hard time keeping up and yet, at his envy, I stay a steady 110 pounds. What can I say? Other than genetics have been kind and send any hostility towards the Swedish DNA my mother gave me.
So, food trucks, stands, trailers, cantinas, even Winnebagoes, I thank you. Thank you for making good food so accessible and affordable. Thank you for being a convenient stop on route to many a destination. And thank you Bay of Quinte region for having such a variety that keeps me one more wish away from living in the big city.
If you haven’t picked up a copy of our Bay of Quinte Discover Guide, then you’re crazy. No just kidding, but you are missing out on some really amazing visuals and content highlighting the awesomeness that visits, lives, works, creates, plays and eats here. One such piece is the two page, hand illustrated foodie fleet map of the area. It’s both useful and adorable. A winning combination if you ask me. It looks like this — Illustration by Jeannie Phan — jeanniephan.com
Killer right? I mean, check out the attention to detail. That little black charcoal grill gets me every time.
Now, this list below is not in any particular order other than it matches the counterclockwise direction of the map. With this much tastiness, we can’t possibly have a favourite.
