Hamilton food trucks in culinary competition
Hamilton food trucks are in AwesTRUCK, a culinary competition. Your votes count and local trucks want your support
The year's biggest food truck extravaganza is fast approaching and Hamilton meals-on-wheels need your help.
AwesTRUCK is a competition for southern Ontario food trucks. Dozens of contestants are vying for a collection of prizes including Best Menu Item, Best New Food Truck, Best Concept and- the big one- the People's Choice Award.
Food Truck Eats, a mobile food vendor association organizing the event, urges culinary connoisseurs to vote for your favourite food truck at www.facebook.com/foodtruckeats.
Hamilton has been a trail-blazer, among Ontario cities, in providing good, mobile eats and will have a strong contingent. Local favourites like Gorilla Cheese, The Big Chief, Dirty South and other top Hamilton outfits are hungry for your support.
The awards ceremony — and the opportunity to sample the competitors' cuisine — is taking place on September 21 at Fort York in Toronto.
Organizers claim the food truck rally will be the largest in Canadian history.
