I went to visit the Das Food truck for Mothers Day. I have wanted for ages to try a food truck and indeed the food was delicious but I had a thought. Here was the truck with not much in the way of foot traffic and yet he had to park on one of the streets away from the lovely square.
Why can't the food trucks operate in an area where they all set up as a destination/ recreation so a family or friends can make going for a lunch especially on the summer weekends in Montreal (most of us go up north or to eastern townships...)a destination where they know people will be willing to come. And get to try all the delights of any food they
want from any of the trucks they want.
That way the trucks are assured of foot traffic, people get to know the trucks, it is a destination to go and have fun; where tables can be placed and another outdoor foodcentric destination could be born.
That was our discussion on the way home. Has it ever been thought of and would the city give up one of its many fun places to house these trucks?
