It seems like only yesterday, Eat St.‘s production company was here filming features on three of our premiere food trucks, Alley Burger, Perogy Boyz and Fries ‘N Dolls. Well, now they are headed back to town next week, August 10th-12th, to feature more of Calgary’s truck clan for the fourth season of the popular television series.
Last time Eat St. filmed in Calgary myself and many other food enthusiasts around town (John Gilchrist, Julie Van Rosendaal, Pierre Lamielle, Fuzzy and Patrick Law of YYC’s Best Eats and more) were lucky enough to be interviewed about some of the trucks, what makes food truck culture an amazing addition to our city and, of course, the food they are dishing out.
This time around, we’ll be back on-camera chatting about three of the city’s newer addition to the food truck fleet…
Might Skillet – Brunch on wheels. The truck has been active since November, 2011, which was a ballsy move considering our unpredictable winter weather. Nonetheless, the truck has proved to maintain its popularity and remains to be the only mobile team in town serving up breakfast on the streets.
Naaco Truck - People were craving these Indian-style tacos weeks before this truck made its debut in the early summer. With over thirty active food trucks driving around Caglary these days, Naaco is definitely one of the most unique and definitely deserves its time in the Eat St. limelight.
Braizen – Active since late spring, Braizen prides itself on sourcing local, seasonal ingredients. There is an amount of finesse put into the dishes offered here that’s not found on most trucks. I think that out of all of the food truck offerings, this is as close as one can get to a restaurant-style plate of food.
If you want to come down to check out all the Eat St. action next weekend, here are the dates and times for each of the three trucks…
Friday, Aug 10th: Might Skillet – 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Riverwalk, East Village
Saturday, Aug 11th: Naaco Truck – 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at The Kingsland Farmers’ Market
Sunday, Aug 12th: Braizen – 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at The Riverwalk, East Village
The film production team will be pulling random food truck lovers from the lines to chat on-camera about the food, so who knows, you could be on a new Eat St. episode too! How rad is that?
