Have you looked outside your window today? If you have you’ll notice something you haven’t seen in the past while: sunshine, t-shirts and sunglasses! It’s springtime weather ladies and gentlemen! In Montreal that can mean only one thing: food truck season.

When you look outside your window this Friday, May 1st keep your eyes peeled for a caravan of Montreal’s food trucks. On May 1st food truck season officially kicks off with around 40 of Montreal’s best food trucks slinging their delicious dishes at the Esplanade Financière Sun Life at the Olympic Stadium from 4pm-11pm. With plenty of food and music to see, here are a few food trucks you should look out for among the crowd!

Pizza no. 900 makes Montreal’s best pizza on wheels with a modern oven that actually cooks pizza at 900 degrees! Out of their truck they have a selection of delicious pizzas, Italian soda, and a Nutella marshmallow desert. You can catch all the action through the large glass windows when you line up to order.

Specialty: Lobster rolls

Lucille’s Oyster Dive is a staple of Montreal west end cuisine. Although their brick and mortar restaurant is known for its vast selection of oysters, they also prepare a mean lobster roll, which is a favourite item on their food truck’s menu. On board the Lucille’s food truck is a smoker/bbq so we recommend you give their ribs a try.

Specialty: Foie Gras poutine

This should not come as a shocker to anyone who knows anything about Montreal’s food trucks. Au Pied de Cochon is consistently a fan favourite among the bevy of food trucks that line Montreal’s streets. Foie gras poutine is a common dish these days, but somehow Au Pied de Cochon makes it so well that you keep wanting to order it time and time again! Don’t forget to wash down that poutine with a tasty maple syrup cream soda.

Route 27 is for all you raw food lovers out their. Food trucks aren’t necessarily known for their healthy options. Route 27 prides itself on serving up the freshest and healthiest ingredients possible and is the one truck out their slinging meat and fish tartare. If you’re not into beef tartare then you should try their yellow fin tuna tartare. It’s a great option!

The first Thai food truck in Montreal, chef Max brought his distinct flavour straight from his experience in Bangkok. Converted from an old mail truck, Tuktuk now serves highly recommended pad thai and other dishes at a great price, especially considering their large portions.
