Sure signs that spring has come to Toronto: west-end hipsters and white squirrels recolonize Trinity Bellwoods; the Toronto Sun starts covering coyote sightings and food trucks dot downtown streets (and Twitter). The newest roving restaurant is Crossroads Diner, a truck serving kitschy diner food, like a cheeseburger homage to Pulp Fiction, chicken Caesear salads and an Elvis-inspired peanut butter and banana sandwich with bacon. Unlike a classic diner, however, the owner David Gleeson is using Ontario ingredients, including grass-fed beef from The Butcher’s Son and Mennonite chicken. Suited-up Bay Streeters beware: a sustainably caught catfish po’ boy is no less sloppy. [Post City]
