Street Food Block Party recap: a night of food trucks, lobster rolls and very enthusiastic eaters

Street Food Block Party recap: a night of food trucks, lobster rolls and very enthusiastic eaters
The surging crowd

In a line that snaked around the Evergreen Brick Works, well over 3,000 street food enthusiasts waited patiently for the first ever mash-up of Food Truck Eats and the Toronto Underground Market: the Street Food Block Party. The keeners at the front of the line counted down, and at five on the nose they raced into the venue trying to hit crowd favourites such as La Carnita, which has been known to draw lines with hour-long waits. By 7 p.m., the venue was stuffed tighter than a tin of sardines, but despite the tangled, weaving lineups, there was nary a disgruntled face to be seen as people danced to live music and enjoyed the Cinco de Mayo–themed goodies (read: tons of tacos) the 20 food vendors and 11 food trucks provided. To make sure the party roared well into the night, there were two menus: an early bird menu from 5 to 8 and a late night menu from 9 to 12. Take a tour of the festivities, in our gallery »
