World's Most Delicious Street Foods 2010
Poutine, The Blue Chip Truck, Toronto
Much like hockey, Canada’s favorite street food can be incomprehensible to outsiders. French fries topped with cheese curds and smothered in gravy…really? Yet poutine, which originated in Quebec before spreading around the country, remains the most beloved of late-night traditions, and non-Canadian skeptics are often turned into true believers once they sample the greasy, gooey delight. Torontonians swear by a blue truck called Mr. Tasty Fries parked on Nathan Phillips Square. Why? It’s all about the skin-on fries, genuine cheese curds (which make a desirable squeaking sound when you bite into them), and the tasty but not-too-salty beef gravy.
