Name of your food truck?
Heirloom Food Truck
Steffen Marin, Ami Dpasquali
Why did you start a food truck?
Our initiative starting the Food truck was to bring a different twist on Toronto street food. We wanted to pursue the challenge of showcasing real Ontario Food and further helping local farmers as we push sustainability within our community.
What do you serve?
We serve a wide variety of dishes. Our menu changes every event/festival we are at, changing the menu based on the type of crowd we are serving, also based on what is in season in Ontario. We have some staples like our Fried Chicken Sandwich, Duck on a Truck, and Pork Belly. These will always be found with different sauces and garnishes as we love to change it up.
Your favorite items on the menu?
One of our favourite items is our Duck. We are very close to our King Cole family and it has been a very big hit. The Fries Szechuan Chicken Sandwich & Pork Belly Banh Mi Sandwich are both some of the fan favorites.
The most popular item on your menu?
Our most popular menu items would have to be Duck Tacos, it’s something very different from what the regular Food Truck offers. Also a twist with our Fried Chicken Sandwich.
Most underrated? Which do you wish people would take a chance and try?
It’s not what I wish people would try more as we usually sell out at all our events, it’s the fact I wish people didn’t just think every food truck sells poutine as they should really understand in trying something new.
Craziest food truck story/experience?
Wayhome might have to be up there in the craziest experiences we had on the truck. Serving over 6000 people in 2 1/2 days was quite an experience as our line lasted 50 deep for a good 9 hours.
Where can people find you?
We are all over the GTA. The best place to find us would be on www.heirloomtoronto.com as as have our scheduled events laid out. Molson Amp is also one of our regular spots for concerts and also many nights at Evergreen Brickworks.
Do you have a store/restaurant etc. as well?
We are looking for the right location now, we should have a brick & mortar by Mid October under Heirloom with a more finer dining twist than just the Food truck scene.
