Me.n.u Food Truck
Bryan Siu-Chong, Allen Tan, Joe Tillo
Why did you start a food truck?
When we graduated from McMaster University in 2011, we wanted to start a business together, and do something new and exciting. Back then there wasn’t too many food trucks in Toronto, but they were super popular in the US. So we made it our mission to start a food truck and here we are, three years later!
What do you serve?
We serve Asian Fusion Street Food. Every winter we travel to Asia to eat amazing street food and learn how to cook these authentic flavours. Then we come back to Toronto and fuse these flavours together with North American concepts. Our original menu consists of fried riceballs, roti tacos, Asian poutines, and rice boxes.
Your favorite items on the menu?
The one that started it all: Fried Riceballs!
The most popular item on your menu?
PEKING DUCK POUTINE
Most underrated? Which do you wish people would take a chance and try?
Our fried riceballs are popular amongst those who follow our business, but they are underrated to people who haven’t heard of them before. “what is it, just rice in a ball?” But once they take the chance to try them, the usual response is “WOW!”
Craziest food truck story/experience?
Last year when we won the People’s Choice award at the annual AWEStruck event. That makes it two years in a row!
Where can people find you?
When we are not doing special events or private catering, people can find us at University and College, in front of the Toronto General Hospital. We post our location on our website.
Do you have a store/restaurant etc. as well?
Not yet 😉
