Gotham Burger, Gotham Poutine, steak sandwich
Most underrated? Which do you wish people would take a chance and try?
Chicken wings. I think the reason for it is that it’s a little messier to eat. And yes, beer is a must on the side which we unfortunately can’t serve.
Craziest food truck story/experience?
The entire journey so far has been crazy. Both Nima and myself went to Ryerson University for engineering in 2008 and graduated in 2012 with Mechanical Engineering degrees. We started working in the construction industry right away and after 3 years we felt like there was something missing and that was accepting bigger challenges and taking the entrepreneurial path to make a difference even if that difference is very small. Once that decision was made, it wasn’t long until we knew it was going to be a food truck, considering we are both foodies. Networking in the food industry began to ensure the food brought to the people has the highest quality. Thanks to our friends for connecting us to the greatest chefs of the highest rated hotels, their ideas were implemented in the menu.
Now, that the business is up and running every day is a journey. Meeting with new people is exciting and even more exciting than that is seeing people coming back to us. Certainly they make us feel special.
Where can people find you?
Usually at Church and Bloor. We update our location on Food Trucks Toronto phone app. Also, we update our social media pages almost on a daily basis.
Do you have a store/restaurant etc. as well?
Not as of yet. But maybe in the near future.
