Street food!

That's illegal in Quebec.

Nice pics, brings back memories.

You mean distinct ;)

Have to admit, I love those street food venders when i'm in Ottawa. Haven't had in about 5 years. Quebec sucks. I want street food.

Remember the smoked meat topic? After I left the job at the smoke house as a kid the Quebec food police went in and disallowed dry curing (you know sausages, peperoni, ham, turkey that is cured and hung up to air dry). People have only been doing that for a few thousands years... oh well.

I was wondering what the occassion was Ron. Love French Fries! I try to stay away from them though.

Dumbo - no food trucks? That's just not humane!

I don't think you will find a Quebecker that knows what a food truck is.

Sez:
"The three trucks will be serving up slider-sized portions of their pulled pork, so you’ll have enough room to consider all three if you so choose!"

Don't think you will find a Quebecker that knows what a "slider-size" is, unless they aren't really Quebeckers.

I don't even know what a slider-size is. What the heck is that?

sliders are baby hamburgers..... little guys..... About 1/2 the size of a regular burger served on little buns. Slider sized would be pulled pork served on small buns.

Good french fries have to be up there in the 'best food' category, imo that is! lol Wish I could eat more of the real thing.

I'm talking a few years ago now, but my mother used lard to make 'chips' The fryer was a very large saucepan with a metal basket that fitted inside it, with a vented lid. She had another one for fish. Lots and lots of lard to fill those up!

I only have to close my eyes and can smell and taste the best fish & chips in the world - crispy crunchy light batter and crisp and crunchy chips that were soft inside, right in my mother's tiny tiny kitchen. Lots of salt and malt vinegar was all that was needed. Heaven!

My parents and four children were all pencil thin too despite all the 'fat' that was consumed in those days. Eggs and bacon fried in lard, then the bread fried in the flavoured lard once the eggs and bacon were done.

There was not a lot of money in my family, just enough to feed and clothe us, and sometimes food was a bit short too. We would often have a sandwich made from spreading lard on bread and sprinkling with salt!
