Alright, I was in Port Hope for easter weekend. Port hope's a little town about an hour east of Toronto for what it's worth. There was a chip truck there, and we stopped to grab some fries. It was in the parking lot of the liquidation world, bottom of Walton st, across from KFC.
I sprayed them with the malt-vinegar-spray-bottle deal, and threw some salt on them, and no sooner had I taken a bite than I knew I was in pure chip-truck heaven.
I've yet to stop thinking about how great they were. Yes, I know if I really wanted some I could just make the trip back there, and I totally intend on doing so. That's not the question though.
The question is whenever I don't feel like making the trip all the way there for some fries, where can I find the best chip truck fries in my home city? I live at Sheppard and Yonge, but I know there's no chip truck around here.
Great things have been said about the truck down in front of city hall, and I totally want to check it out, but is it really the best?
Good chip truck fries in my mind are a lot like a fatter version of New York Fries. They've got a great potatoe flavour, with good oil. Bonus points for skin-on, and extra bonus points for fresh cut. Also, they must taste awesome with malt vinegar. OH, and HUGE PORTIONS.
Good chip trucks...GO!
