FINALLY! The very popular Food Network show, Eat St. is coming to Montreal to feature not one, not two, not three, but FOUR fantastic food trucks.

On Friday, August 10th at Place Emilie Gamelin, they will be featuring the popular restaurant Nouveau Palais’ food truck, “Winneburger“. Formerly a Winnebago, this truck serves delicious burgers (single or double patty), fries, “monkey tails” (chocolate dipped frozen bananas), and much more.

At New City Gas, on Thursday, August 16th, La Mangeoire is making their network television debut as well. This gigantic food truck prides themselves on gourmet sandwiches. At the Souk during the Just For Laughs Festival, I had one of the best things I ever ate in Le Decadent, a nutella, peanut butter, and bacon grilled sandwich. Simply amazing.

On Monday, August 13th at 11:30am at 351 blvd. Lionel-Boulet in the South-Shore, Pas D’Cochon Dans Mon Salon will serve Eat St. what they do best: pulled pork sandwiches. I’ve had this sandwich a few times, and I’m always speechless. With the smallest food truck in the bunch, Pas D’Cochon Dans Mon Salon packs a big punch. If you work in the South Shore, make sure to visit them since they are throwing a little party outside.

Finally, Eat St. will pay a visit to this city’s first taco truck, Grumman ’78 on Tuesday, August 14th at 6:00pm on the Lachine Canal. Grumman has been the authority and the first movers of street food in Montreal. With unique flavors touching on various cuisines and cultures, such as the turkey dinner, curry lamb, ancho beef, and pork bahn mi tacos, this truck has made hungry people satisfied every time they chow down.

Yes, congrats to those two trucks. However, it’s a shame that Grumman 78 is not included, as they are pretty much the originators and pioneers of street food in town. Not to mention that Gaelle organized Le Souk Gastronomique. Sounds like an unfair snub to me.

You’re right: that PB-Nutella-bacon sandwich was off the hook! :)

From my read, all 3 trucks are involved in Eat St. — no?

4 trucks, and yes, they will all be featured on Eat St.

So, all 4 trucks are going to be on the show then? The beginning of your article says “not one, but TWO”.

Anyway, that pulled pork sandwich from Pas d’Cochon Dans Mon Salon is serious! Definitely the best that I have had in Montreal.

Thanks for noticing. I fixed it.
